Adds or removes replicas in the specified global table. The global table must already exist to be able to use this operation. Any replica to be added must be empty, must have the same name as the global table, must have the same key schema, must have DynamoDB Streams enabled, and cannot have any local secondary indexes (LSIs).

Although you can use UpdateGlobalTable to add replicas and remove replicas in a single request, for simplicity we recommend that you issue separate requests for adding or removing replicas.


For .NET Core, PCL and Unity this operation is only available in asynchronous form. Please refer to UpdateGlobalTableAsync.
