Error: dynamodb ttl not deleting / erasing items
What's Causing This Error
You may run into this error for numerous reasons.

- TTL attribute not defined: The TTL process ignores the item if the item does not contain the TTL attribute.
- Invalid TTL data type: If the item has the TTL attribute with a type other than Number, the TTL process ignores the item and does not delete it.
- Invalid TTL time format: If the item's TTL timestamp is not in UNIX Epoch Time Format, the TTL process will ignore and skip the item.

There is no correct way to fix this error. However, you can try the following fixes and see which works for you.
- Enable TTL: Verify that TTL is enabled on the DynamoDB table.
- Verify TTL attribute: Ensure that the TTL attribute you put on your items is the same TTL attribute you defined when creating the table with TTL.
