Question: In DynamoDB, can I use UUID as the partition key?
Yes, you can use a UUID as a partition key in DynamoDB. A partition key is used to determine the physical partition in which the item will be stored, and it must be unique for each item in the table. Since a UUID is a universally unique identifier, it can be used as a partition key to ensure that each item in the table has a unique key.
