Error: boto3 dynamodb client error

Rafal Wilinski

Answered by Rafal Wilinski

What's Causing This Error

This is a common issue with DynamoDB and boto3. There are several reasons for this error:

  • Incorrectly configured AWS credentials.
  • Incorrectly specifying the endpoint or region for the DynamoDB service.
  • Attempting to perform an action on a table that does not exist.
  • Performing an action that requires a specific IAM permission that the user doesn't have.

Solution: Here's How To Resolve It

There is no specific way to fix this issue. In general, you can fix it by:

  1. Verifying the client configuration.
  2. Verifying the table name.
  3. Ensuring that your IAM Role or User has the correct permissions
