Error: DynamoDB Delete Method Not Working For The First Time

Answered by Rafal Wilinski

What's Causing This Error

In many cases, this error occurs when the key you specify is not available. But sometimes, some SDK functions can cause it if you do not pass a callback parameter, even when it is not mandatory.

Solution: Here's How To Resolve It

As the first step, double-check whether the key you specify is accurate and exists within the database. If it is correct and you are not getting any error messages, it is probably because of the second reason. So, try passing a callback parameter. Given below is a sample code that represents this solution.

const dataRspns = await ddb.deleteItem(params, () => {}).promise();
