Error: DynamoDB scan does not return all items
What's Causing This Error
- This error can be caused by a variety of issues, such as:
- Incorrect filter conditions specified in the scan request.
- The scan request is only returning a subset of the items due to the limit parameter specified.
- The table has a large number of items, and the scan request is taking longer than expected.
- Issues with the IAM role associated with the request.
- Errors with the scan function or the SDK being used.
Solution: Here's How To Resolve It
To solve this error, you can take the following steps:
- Double-check the filter conditions specified in the scan request to ensure they correctly filter the desired items.
- Check if the limit parameter is specified in the scan request and increase the limit if necessary to return all the items.
- If the table has many items, you can use the pagination feature provided by the scan function to retrieve all the items in smaller chunks.
- Check the IAM role associated with the request to ensure it has the necessary permissions to read the table.
- Verify that the scan function or SDK being used is configured correctly and that all necessary dependencies are installed.
- 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.
