DynamoDB - AWS Serverless Application Model

DynamoDB

The object describing a DynamoDB event source type. For more information, see Using AWS Lambda with Amazon DynamoDB in the AWS Lambda Developer Guide.

AWS SAM generates an AWS::Lambda::EventSourceMapping resource when this event type is set.

ParallelizationFactor

The number of batches to process from each shard concurrently.

Type: Integer

Required: No
