The error DynamoDB type item is not supported is caused when an invalid item is passed to a DynamoDB operation. DynamoDB supports several items, such as tables, indexes, and streams. Attempting to operate on an item of a type that is not supported by the operation will result in this error.

Solution: Here's How To Resolve It

  • Verify that the type of item being passed to the operation is a valid type supported by the operation.
  • Check the documentation of the DynamoDB service to see what types of items are supported by the operation you are trying to perform.
  • If you are trying to operate on a stream, ensure that the stream is enabled on the table and that the correct stream events are captured.
  • If the issue persists, you may contact AWS support for further assistance.
  • Additionally, you can use CloudWatch logs to check the logs and troubleshoot the issue.
  • It is important to validate the type of item you want to operate on according to the DynamoDB documentation to avoid such issues.
