Answered by Rafal Wilinski

What's Causing This Error

The error is caused when the attribute in a DynamoDB table has no value or an empty value. In DynamoDB, attributes must have a value.

Solution: Here's How To Resolve It

To solve this error, you can take the following steps:

  • Ensure that the attribute has a value before adding it to the table.
  • When creating a new item, you can check if the attribute is empty and add a value to it before sending the request to the DynamoDB service.
  • If you're using the AWS SDK, you can check the documentation of the SDK to see if there is any helper function to check if an attribute is empty.
  • If the issue persists, you may contact AWS support for further assistance.
  • Additionally, you can use CloudWatch logs to check the logs and troubleshoot the issue.
  • It is important to validate the attributes in the items you want to put in the DynamoDB table according to the attribute schema in the table to avoid such issues.
