Options

--import-arn (string)

The Amazon Resource Name (ARN) associated with the table you're importing to.

--cli-input-json (string) Performs service operation based on the JSON string provided. The JSON string follows the format provided by --generate-cli-skeleton. If other arguments are provided on the command line, the CLI values will override the JSON-provided values. It is not possible to pass arbitrary binary values using a JSON-provided value as the string will be taken literally.

--generate-cli-skeleton (string) Prints a JSON skeleton to standard output without sending an API request. If provided with no value or the value input, prints a sample input JSON that can be used as an argument for --cli-input-json. If provided with the value output, it validates the command inputs and returns a sample output JSON for that command.

Global Options

--debug (boolean)

Turn on debug logging.

--endpoint-url (string)

Override command's default URL with the given URL.

--no-verify-ssl (boolean)

By default, the AWS CLI uses SSL when communicating with AWS services. For each SSL connection, the AWS CLI will verify SSL certificates. This option overrides the default behavior of verifying SSL certificates.

--no-paginate (boolean)

Disable automatic pagination.

--output (string)

The formatting style for command output.

  • json
  • text
  • table

--query (string)

A JMESPath query to use in filtering the response data.

--ca-bundle (string)

The CA certificate bundle to use when verifying SSL certificates. Overrides config/env settings.

--cli-read-timeout (int)

The maximum socket read time in seconds. If the value is set to 0, the socket read will be blocking and not timeout. The default value is 60 seconds.

--cli-connect-timeout (int)

The maximum socket connect time in seconds. If the value is set to 0, the socket connect will be blocking and not timeout. The default value is 60 seconds.

Delimiter -> (string)

The delimiter used for separating items in the CSV file being imported.

HeaderList -> (list)

List of the headers used to specify a common header for all source CSV files being imported. If this field is specified then the first line of each CSV file is treated as data instead of the header. If this field is not specified the the first line of each CSV file is treated as the header.

(string)

InputCompressionType -> (string)

The compression options for the data that has been imported into the target table. The values are NONE, GZIP, or ZSTD.

TableCreationParameters -> (structure)

The parameters for the new table that is being imported into.

TableName -> (string)

The name of the table created as part of the import operation.

AttributeDefinitions -> (list)

(structure)

Represents an attribute for describing the key schema for the table and indexes.

AttributeName -> (string)

A name for the attribute.

AttributeType -> (string)

The data type for the attribute, where:

  • S - the attribute is of type String
  • N - the attribute is of type Number
  • B - the attribute is of type Binary

KeySchema -> (list)

The primary key and option sort key of the table created as part of the import operation.

(structure)

Represents a single element of a key schema. A key schema specifies the attributes that make up the primary key of a table, or the key attributes of an index.

A KeySchemaElement represents exactly one attribute of the primary key. For example, a simple primary key would be represented by one KeySchemaElement (for the partition key). A composite primary key would require one KeySchemaElement for the partition key, and another KeySchemaElement for the sort key.

A KeySchemaElement must be a scalar, top-level attribute (not a nested attribute). The data type must be one of String, Number, or Binary. The attribute cannot be nested within a List or a Map.

AttributeName -> (string)

The name of a key attribute.

KeyType -> (string)

The role that this key attribute will assume:

  • HASH - partition key
  • RANGE - sort key

Note

The partition key of an item is also known as its hash attribute . The term "hash attribute" derives from DynamoDB's usage of an internal hash function to evenly distribute data items across partitions, based on their partition key values.

The sort key of an item is also known as its range attribute . The term "range attribute" derives from the way DynamoDB stores items with the same partition key physically close together, in sorted order by the sort key value.

BillingMode -> (string)

The billing mode for provisioning the table created as part of the import operation.

ProvisionedThroughput -> (structure)

Represents the provisioned throughput settings for a specified table or index. The settings can be modified using the UpdateTable operation.

For current minimum and maximum provisioned throughput values, see Service, Account, and Table Quotas in the Amazon DynamoDB Developer Guide .

ReadCapacityUnits -> (long)

The maximum number of strongly consistent reads consumed per second before DynamoDB returns a ThrottlingException . For more information, see Specifying Read and Write Requirements in the Amazon DynamoDB Developer Guide .

If read/write capacity mode is PAY_PER_REQUEST the value is set to 0.

WriteCapacityUnits -> (long)

The maximum number of writes consumed per second before DynamoDB returns a ThrottlingException . For more information, see Specifying Read and Write Requirements in the Amazon DynamoDB Developer Guide .

If read/write capacity mode is PAY_PER_REQUEST the value is set to 0.

SSESpecification -> (structure)

Represents the settings used to enable server-side encryption.

Enabled -> (boolean)

Indicates whether server-side encryption is done using an Amazon Web Services managed key or an Amazon Web Services owned key. If enabled (true), server-side encryption type is set to KMS and an Amazon Web Services managed key is used (KMS charges apply). If disabled (false) or not specified, server-side encryption is set to Amazon Web Services owned key.

SSEType -> (string)

Server-side encryption type. The only supported value is:

  • KMS - Server-side encryption that uses Key Management Service. The key is stored in your account and is managed by KMS (KMS charges apply).

KMSMasterKeyId -> (string)

The KMS key that should be used for the KMS encryption. To specify a key, use its key ID, Amazon Resource Name (ARN), alias name, or alias ARN. Note that you should only provide this parameter if the key is different from the default DynamoDB key alias/aws/dynamodb .

GlobalSecondaryIndexes -> (list)

The Global Secondary Indexes (GSI) of the table to be created as part of the import operation.

(structure)

Represents the properties of a global secondary index.

IndexName -> (string)

The name of the global secondary index. The name must be unique among all other indexes on this table.

KeySchema -> (list)

The complete key schema for a global secondary index, which consists of one or more pairs of attribute names and key types:

  • HASH - partition key
  • RANGE - sort key

Note

The partition key of an item is also known as its hash attribute . The term "hash attribute" derives from DynamoDB's usage of an internal hash function to evenly distribute data items across partitions, based on their partition key values.

The sort key of an item is also known as its range attribute . The term "range attribute" derives from the way DynamoDB stores items with the same partition key physically close together, in sorted order by the sort key value.

Projection -> (structure)

Represents attributes that are copied (projected) from the table into the global secondary index. These are in addition to the primary key attributes and index key attributes, which are automatically projected.

ProjectionType -> (string)

The set of attributes that are projected into the index:

  • KEYS_ONLY - Only the index and primary keys are projected into the index.
  • INCLUDE - In addition to the attributes described in KEYS_ONLY , the secondary index will include other non-key attributes that you specify.
  • ALL - All of the table attributes are projected into the index.

NonKeyAttributes -> (list)

Represents the non-key attribute names which will be projected into the index.

For local secondary indexes, the total count of NonKeyAttributes summed across all of the local secondary indexes, must not exceed 100. If you project the same attribute into two different indexes, this counts as two distinct attributes when determining the total.

(string)

ProvisionedThroughput -> (structure)

Represents the provisioned throughput settings for the specified global secondary index.

For current minimum and maximum provisioned throughput values, see Service, Account, and Table Quotas in the Amazon DynamoDB Developer Guide .

ReadCapacityUnits -> (long)
