What's Causing This Error
This error message indicates an issue with the credentials provided when accessing a local instance of DynamoDB.
Specifically, it indicates that the credentials are not found or cannot be located. For example, this can happen if the credentials are not properly configured in the code or if the credentials file is not in the expected location.
Solution: Here's How To Resolve It
To solve this error, check the credentials used to access the local instance of DynamoDB and ensure they are properly configured.
The snippet shown below shows an example where credentials are configured in python using
session = boto3.Session( aws_access_key_id='ACCESS_KEY', aws_secret_access_key='SECRET_KEY', region_name='us-west-2' )
