Synopsis

Calls the Amazon DynamoDB TransactGetItems API operation.

Syntax

Get-DDBItemTransactionally
-ReturnConsumedCapacity <ReturnConsumedCapacity>
-TransactItem <TransactGetItem[]>
-Select <String>

Description

TransactGetItems is a synchronous operation that atomically retrieves multiple items from one or more tables (but not from indexes) in a single account and Region. A TransactGetItems call can contain up to 25 TransactGetItem objects, each of which contains a Get structure that specifies an item to retrieve from a table in the account and Region. A call to TransactGetItems cannot retrieve items from tables in more than one AWS account or Region. The aggregate size of the items in the transaction cannot exceed 4 MB. DynamoDB rejects the entire TransactGetItems request if any of the following is true:
  • A conflicting operation is in the process of updating an item to be read.
  • There is insufficient provisioned capacity for the transaction to be completed.
  • There is a user error, such as an invalid data format.
  • The aggregate size of the items in the transaction cannot exceed 4 MB.

Parameters

-ReturnConsumedCapacity <ReturnConsumedCapacity>
A value of TOTAL causes consumed capacity information to be returned, and a value of NONE prevents that information from being returned. No other value is valid.

Specifying -Select '^ParameterName' will result in the cmdlet returning the selected cmdlet parameter value.
