CreateTable - Amazon Keyspaces (for Apache Cassandra)

CreateTable

The CreateTable operation adds a new table to the specified keyspace. Within a keyspace, table names must be unique.

CreateTable is an asynchronous operation. When the request is received, the status of the table is set to CREATING. You can monitor the creation status of the new table by using the GetTable operation, which returns the current status of the table. You can start using a table when the status is ACTIVE.

For more information, see Creating tables in the Amazon Keyspaces Developer Guide.

Request Parameters

For information about the parameters that are common to all actions, see Common Parameters.

The request accepts the following data in JSON format.

capacitySpecification

Specifies the read/write throughput capacity mode for the table. The options are:

  • throughputMode:PAY_PER_REQUEST and

  • throughputMode:PROVISIONED. The provisioned capacity mode requires readCapacityUnits and writeCapacityUnits as inputs.

The default is throughput_mode:PAY_PER_REQUEST.

For more information, see Read/write capacity modes in the Amazon Keyspaces Developer Guide.

Type: CapacitySpecification object

Required: No

comment

This parameter allows to enter a description of the table.

Type: Comment object

Required: No

defaultTimeToLive

The default Time to Live setting in seconds for the table.

For more information, see Setting the default TTL value for a table in the Amazon Keyspaces Developer Guide.

Type: Integer

Valid Range: Minimum value of 1. Maximum value of 630720000.

Required: No

encryptionSpecification

Specifies how the encryption key for encryption at rest is managed for the table. You can choose one of the following KMS key (KMS key):

  • type:AWS_OWNED_KMS_KEY - This key is owned by Amazon Keyspaces.

  • type:CUSTOMER_MANAGED_KMS_KEY - This key is stored in your account and is created, owned, and managed by you. This option requires the kms_key_identifier of the KMS key in Amazon Resource Name (ARN) format as input.

The default is type:AWS_OWNED_KMS_KEY.

For more information, see Encryption at rest in the Amazon Keyspaces Developer Guide.

Type: EncryptionSpecification object

Required: No

keyspaceName

The name of the keyspace that the table is going to be created in.

Type: String

Length Constraints: Minimum length of 1. Maximum length of 48.

Pattern: [a-zA-Z0-9][a-zA-Z0-9_]{1,47}

Required: Yes

pointInTimeRecovery

Specifies if pointInTimeRecovery is enabled or disabled for the table. The options are:

  • ENABLED

  • DISABLED

If it's not specified, the default is DISABLED.

For more information, see Point-in-time recovery in the Amazon Keyspaces Developer Guide.

Type: PointInTimeRecovery object

Required: No

schemaDefinition

The schemaDefinition consists of the following parameters.

For each column to be created:

  • name - The name of the column.

  • type - An Amazon Keyspaces data type. For more information, see Data types in the Amazon Keyspaces Developer Guide.

The primary key of the table consists of the following columns:

  • partitionKeys - The partition key can be a single column, or it can be a compound value composed of two or more columns. The partition key portion of the primary key is required and determines how Amazon Keyspaces stores your data.

    • name - The name of each partition key column.

  • clusteringKeys - The optional clustering column portion of your primary key determines how the data is clustered and sorted within each partition.

    • name - The name of the clustering column.

    • orderBy - Sets the ascendant (ASC) or descendant (DESC) order modifier.

To define a column as static use staticColumns - Static columns store values that are shared by all rows in the same partition:

  • name - The name of the column.

  • type - An Amazon Keyspaces data type.

Type: SchemaDefinition object

Required: Yes

tableName

The name of the table.

Type: String

Length Constraints: Minimum length of 1. Maximum length of 48.

Pattern: [a-zA-Z0-9][a-zA-Z0-9_]{1,47}

Required: Yes

tags

A list of key-value pair tags to be attached to the resource.

For more information, see Adding tags and labels to Amazon Keyspaces resources in the Amazon Keyspaces Developer Guide.

Type: Array of Tag objects

Array Members: Minimum number of 1 item. Maximum number of 60 items.

Required: No

ttl

Enables Time to Live custom settings for the table. The options are:

  • status:enabled

  • status:disabled

The default is status:disabled. After ttl is enabled, you can't disable it for the table.

For more information, see Expiring data by using Amazon Keyspaces Time to Live (TTL) in the Amazon Keyspaces Developer Guide.

Type: TimeToLive object

Required: No

Response Syntax

{ "resourceArn": "string" }

Response Elements

The following data is returned in JSON format by the service.

resourceArn

The unique identifier of the table in the format of an Amazon Resource Name (ARN).

Type: String

Length Constraints: Minimum length of 20. Maximum length of 1000.

Pattern: arn:(aws[a-zA-Z0-9-]*):cassandra:.+.*
