Error: DynamoDB local is not available for stage dev

What's Causing This Error

This error occurs when trying to access the DynamoDB Local service during a development stage.

DynamoDB Local is a service that allows you to run DynamoDB on your own computer rather than on the AWS infrastructure, which is intended to be used for development and testing purposes. However, it's not intended to be used in production environments.

Solution: Here's How To Resolve It

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

  • Use the actual DynamoDB service in the AWS cloud for the development stage instead of DynamoDB Local.
  • If you still want to use DynamoDB Local for development and testing purposes, ensure that you are running it on your local machine and properly configured.
  • Ensure that your application points to the correct endpoint for the environment you are working on.
  • If you are using the AWS SDK, ensure that you have set the correct endpoint for the service.
  • If the issue persists, you may contact AWS support for further assistance.
  • Additionally, you can use DynamoDB Streams and Lambda functions to handle error handling and retries more efficiently.
  • Monitor your CloudWatch metrics for the DynamoDB table to see if you are exceeding the read and write capacity units
  • If you are using DynamoDB Local on your local machine, you can check that the service is running and the endpoint is reachable.
  • It's important to remember that DynamoDB Local has certain limitations and should not be used in production environments.
