Frequently Asked Questions

How can I export entire table to JSON?

All records can be exported by running a Scan operation, selecting all records, and then pressing the 'Export > As JSON' button. All data should be stored in a JSON file locally.

How to export DynamoDB query result to JSON?

Use Dynobase's visual filter options, run the query and then click on the 'Export' button in the footer. While exporting, select 'JSON' in the format option dropdown.

Can I export more than 100 items to JSON?

Yes! Unlike DynamoDB Console, Dynobase allows displaying and selecting more than 100 items at once. You can even export millions of items at once. DynamoDB JSON dump is easy with Dynobase.

How much does it cost to export my data?

Exporting your data is as expensive as running a Scan/Query operation. The cost varies depending on how many items you have in the table and how many of them there are.
