Error: DynamoDB table not updating

What's Causing This Error

The error "dynamodb table not updating" can be caused by a variety of issues, such as:

  • Improperly formatted update expressions or attribute values.
  • Insufficient provisioned write capacity on the table.
  • Concurrent requests exceed the provisioned write capacity of the table.
  • Issues with the IAM role associated with the request.
  • The primary key specified in the update request is incorrect or not matching with the primary key schema defined in the table.
  • The item you're trying to update doesn't exist in the table.

Solution: Here's How To Resolve It

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

  • Double-check the format of the update expressions and attribute values sent to the DynamoDB service to ensure they are properly formatted.
  • Check the provisioned write capacity on the table and increase it if necessary.
  • Consider implementing exponential backoff to handle retries for failed requests.
  • Check the IAM role associated with the request to ensure it has the necessary permissions to update the table.
  • Check the primary key specified in the update request and ensure that it matches the primary key schema defined in the table.
  • Verify that the item you're trying to update exists in the table.
  • You can also check the CloudWatch metrics for the DynamoDB table to see if you are exceeding the write capacity units.
  • If the issue persists, you may contact AWS support for further assistance.
