Amazon Dynamo DB Connector


The Jitterbit Harmony Amazon Dynamo DB Connector establishes access to Amazon Dynamo DB.

The Amazon Dynamo DB connector provides an interface for creating an Amazon Dynamo DB connection, the foundation used for generating instances of Amazon Dynamo DB activities. Activities interact with Amazon Dynamo DB through the connection and are intended to be used as sources (to provide data in an operation) or targets (to consume data in an operation).

The Amazon Dynamo DB connector is accessed from the design component palette's Connections tab (see Design Component Palette).


This connector can be used only with Private Agents. In addition, it is a Connector SDK-based connector, which may be referred to by Jitterbit when communicating changes made to connectors built with the Connector SDK.

Connection Documentation

In addition to the Amazon Dynamo DB connection, see Jitterbit's comprehensive Amazon Dynamo DB connection details page. Configuration details such as these are included on that page:

  • Getting Started: Initial steps for establishing a connection.
  • Advanced Features: User-defined views and SSL configuration.
  • Data Model: The data model that the connector uses to represent the endpoint.
  • Advanced Configurations Properties: Properties that can be defined to configure a connection for both basic and advanced configurations.

Activity Documentation

Together, a specific Amazon Dynamo DB connection and its activities are referred to as an Amazon Dynamo DB endpoint:

Amazon Dynamo DB activity types

  • Query: Retrieves records from a table at Amazon Dynamo DB and is intended to be used as a source in an operation.

  • Create: Inserts a record into a table at Amazon Dynamo DB and is intended to be used as a target in an operation.

  • Update: Updates a record in a table at Amazon Dynamo DB and is intended to be used as a target in an operation.

  • Delete: Deletes a record from a table at Amazon Dynamo DB and is intended to be used as a target in an operation.

Prerequisites and Supported API Versions

The Amazon Dynamo DB connector requires the use of an agent version 10.1 or later. These agent versions automatically download the latest version of the connector when required.

This connector requires the use of a Private Agent.

Refer to the documentation for information on the schema nodes and fields.


If you experience issues with the Amazon Dynamo DB connector, these troubleshooting steps are recommended:

  1. Ensure the Amazon Dynamo DB connection is successful by using the Test button in the configuration screen. If the connection is not successful, the error returned may provide an indication as to the problem.

  2. Check the operation logs for any information written during execution of the operation.

  3. Enable operation debug logging for Private Agents to generate additional log files and data.

  4. Enable connector verbose logging for this connector using this specific configuration entry of logger name and level:

    <logger name="org.jitterbit.connector.verbose.logging.AmazonDynamoDB" level="TRACE"/>
  5. Check the agent logs for more information.
