Error: AWS DynamoDB errors ResourceNotFoundException


DynamoDB responds with this error when you're trying to run an operation against non-existent or not active table.

Troubleshooting steps:

  • Make sure you haven't made any spelling mistake in TableName parameter while running SDK/CLI operations. Table name must be exactly the same as the name of provisioned table. It's case sensitive so make sure capitalization is also correct.
  • Make sure that your table exists and it's in ACTIVE state
  • Check if you're using the same AWS account and correct region. DynamoDB Table must be in the same region as CLI/SDK configuration
  • Make sure you or your resource (e.g. Lambda function) has correct IAM permissions to perform operations on selected table
