What's Causing This Error

Error code 413 (Request Entity Too Large error message) is an error that is caused by the data size limitation in DynamoDB. It generally indicates that the request payload is too large. For instance, this error can arise when the size of an item you are trying to insert or update is larger than 400 kB (the maximum item size for DynamoDB).

Solution: Here's How To Resolve It

If you are getting this 413 error code, determine the size of the item you handle as the first approach. Then, to resolve this issue, you can either break down the item into multiple smaller items of lesser size or reduce the size of the item you are trying to insert or update.
