Error: DynamoDB BatchSave not working

Rafal Wilinski

Answered by Rafal Wilinski

What's Causing This Error

This error can be caused by a variety of issues, such as:

  • Improperly formatted requests.
  • Insufficient provisioned write capacity on the table.
  • Concurrent requests exceeding the provisioned write capacity of the table.
  • Issues with the IAM role associated with the request.
  • Errors with the batchsave function or the SDK being used.

Solution: Here's How To Resolve It

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

  • Double-check the format of the requests sent to the DynamoDB service to ensure they are properly formatted.
  • Check the provisioned write capacity on the table and increase it if necessary.
  • Consider implementing exponential backoff to handle retries for failed requests.
  • Check the IAM role associated with the request to ensure it has the necessary permissions to write to the table.
  • Verify that the batchsave function or SDK being used is configured correctly, and all necessary dependencies are installed.
  • You can also check the CloudWatch metrics for the DynamoDB table to see if you are exceeding the write capacity units.
