Error: dynamodb cannot convert undefined to object

What's Causing This Error

You may run into this error mainly in a Node.js environment when the code tries to access properties or methods of an object that has yet to be defined or initialized correctly.

It could be a problem with the data you pass to DynamoDB or the way you are trying to access the property.

Solution: Here's How To Resolve It

Since the actual code isn't available, there is no proper way to determine the exact solution for this issue. Therefore, the best option is to re-examine the code (debug it) and ensure that the value you are trying to convert to an object is not undefined.

Additionally, you could implement checks like value !== undefined to enforce that the value must not be undefined for an operation to execute.
