Frequently Asked Questions
Can you update primary key in DynamoDB?
Theoretically, no. You need to create a new item and delete the old one. In Dynobase, if you try to do that, it will handle that process for you automatically.
How long does it take to update DynamoDB item?
It's instant once you commit your save.
How to update a list in DynamoDB?
Unfortunately, in DynamoDB there's no SQL-like 'UPDATE X WHERE Y' expression. You need to call update operation on a set of items one by one.
