Creates a global table from an existing table. A global table creates a replication relationship between two or more DynamoDB tables with the same table name in the provided regions.
If you want to add a new replica table to a global table, each of the following conditions must be true:
The table must have the same primary key as all of the other replicas.
The table must have the same name as all of the other replicas.
The table must have DynamoDB Streams enabled, with the stream containing both the new and the old images of the item.
None of the replica tables in the global table can contain any data.
If global secondary indexes are specified, then the following conditions must also be met:
The global secondary indexes must have the same name.
The global secondary indexes must have the same hash key and sort key (if present).
Write capacity settings should be set consistently across your replica tables and secondary indexes. DynamoDB strongly recommends enabling auto scaling to manage the write capacity settings for all of your global tables replicas and indexes.
If you prefer to manage write capacity settings manually, you should provision equal replicated write capacity units to your replica tables. You should also provision equal replicated write capacity units to matching secondary indexes across your global table.
For .NET Core, PCL and Unity this operation is only available in asynchronous form. Please refer to CreateGlobalTableAsync.

|GlobalTableAlreadyExistsException||The specified global table already exists.|
|InternalServerErrorException||An error occurred on the server side.|
|LimitExceededException||There is no limit to the number of daily on-demand backups that can be taken. Up to 10 simultaneous table operations are allowed per account. These operations include CreateTable, UpdateTable, DeleteTable,UpdateTimeToLive, RestoreTableFromBackup, and RestoreTableToPointInTime. For tables with secondary indexes, only one of those tables can be in the CREATING state at any point in time. Do not attempt to create more than one such table simultaneously. The total limit of tables in the ACTIVE state is 250.|
|TableNotFoundException||A source table with the name TableName does not currently exist within the subscriber's account.|
