What's Causing This Error

This error message indicates an issue with the size of the data stored in a DynamoDB table.

Specifically, it indicates that the maximum number of characters allowed in a cell has been exceeded. This can happen if the data stored in a table cell is too large and exceeds the maximum size allowed by DynamoDB.

Solution: Here's How To Resolve It

To solve this error:

  1. Check the data stored in the table and ensure that it does not exceed the maximum size allowed by DynamoDB. For example, the maximum size of an item in a DynamoDB table is 400KB.
  2. Try to store data in smaller chunks or use a compression algorithm to compress data before storing it.
  3. Store the data in a different storage service like S3 and store the reference in DynamoDB.
