Amazon Dynamo DB Connection

Introduction

An Amazon Dynamo DB connection, created using the Amazon Dynamo DB connector, establishes access to Amazon Dynamo DB. These activities, once configured, interact with Amazon Dynamo DB through the connection.

Create or Edit an Amazon Dynamo DB Connection

A new Amazon Dynamo DB connection is created using the Amazon Dynamo DB connector from one of these locations:

An existing Amazon Dynamo DB connection can be edited from these locations:

Configure an Amazon Dynamo DB Connection

Each user interface element of the Amazon Dynamo DB connection configuration screen is described below.

Tip

Fields with a variable icon Variable icon support using global variables, project variables, and Jitterbit variables. Begin either by typing an open square bracket [ into the field or by clicking the variable icon to display a list of the existing variables to choose from.

  • Connection Name: Enter a name to use to identify the connection. The name must be unique for each Amazon Dynamo DB connection and must not contain forward slashes (/) or colons (:).

This connector supports suspending the download of the latest connector version by using the Disable Auto Connector Update organization policy.

Next Steps

After an Amazon Dynamo DB connector connection has been created, you place an activity type on the design canvas to create activity instances to be used either as sources (to provide data in an operation) or as targets (to consume data in an operation).

Menu actions for a connection and its activity types are accessible from the project pane and design component palette. For details, see Actions Menus in Connector Basics.

These activity types are available:

  • 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.

  • Execute: Executes a procedure at Amazon Dynamo DB and is intended to be used as a target in an operation.
