AWS CLI writing into Dynamo DB

Just a quick snippet of AWS CLI for putting items into a dynamo DB.


aws dynamodb put-item --table-name users --item

"userid": {"S": "1234356"},
"first" : {"S": "Mitchy"},
"lastname" : {"S": "Blog"},
"age" : {"N": "999"}


N = Number value

S = String Value

Use conditional Puts to update or replace existing items.

The new line layout above is just to make it easier to read.

It’s great to come across a blog every once in a while that isn’t the same out of date rehashed material. Fantastic read.

A little about Me

My name is Mitch Beaumont and I've been a technology professional since 1999.

I then joined IBM Global Services where I began specialising in customer projects which were based on and around Citrix technologies.
