Question: How to forcefully delete a DynamoDB table?
In DynamoDB, to forcefully delete a table, you can use the
DeleteTable operation. This operation will delete the table and all of its data, and it can take some time for the operation to complete, depending on the size of the table.
To delete a table with Dynobase, you can navigate to the table you want to delete in the left sidebar, right-click, and select "Delete Table" from the context menu.
This will open a modal where you will have to confirm the deletion of the table after confirming the table will be deleted.
Alternatively, you can also use the "Truncate Table" feature, also available in Dynobase. It will remove all the records from the table but keep the table and its schema. This is useful when you want to keep the table's structure but remove all the data.
It's important to keep in mind that deleting a table is an irreversible operation, so make sure you have a backup of the data or you are sure that you want to delete the table permanently before proceeding.
