2020/02/17 - 2 updated api methods

Changes   Amazon DynamoDB enables you to restore your DynamoDB backup or table data across AWS Regions such that the restored table is created in a different AWS Region from where the source table or backup resides. You can do cross-region restores between AWS commercial Regions, AWS China Regions, and AWS GovCloud (US) Regions.

2019/11/26 - 3 new 10 updated api methods

Changes   1) Amazon Contributor Insights for Amazon DynamoDB is a diagnostic tool for identifying frequently accessed keys and understanding database traffic trends. 2) Support for displaying new fields when a table's encryption state is Inaccessible or the table have been Archived.

2019/11/21 - 2 new 11 updated api methods

Changes   With this release, you can convert an existing Amazon DynamoDB table to a global table by adding replicas in other AWS Regions.

2019/11/12 - 2 updated api methods

Changes   Amazon DynamoDB enables you to restore your data to a new DynamoDB table using a point-in-time or on-demand backup. You now can modify the settings on the new restored table. Specifically, you can exclude some or all of the local and global secondary indexes from being created with the restored table. In addition, you can change the billing mode and provisioned capacity settings.

Changes   This update allows you to tag Amazon DynamoDB tables when you create them. Tags are labels you can attach to AWS resources to make them easier to manage, search, and filter.

2019/01/16 - 4 updated api methods

Changes   Amazon DynamoDB now integrates with AWS Backup, a centralized backup service that makes it easy for customers to configure and audit the AWS resources they want to backup, automate backup scheduling, set retention policies, and monitor all recent backup and restore activity. AWS Backup provides a fully managed, policy-based backup solution, simplifying your backup management, and helping you meet your business and regulatory backup compliance requirements. For more information, see the Amazon DynamoDB Developer Guide.

2018/11/28 - 2 new 18 updated api methods

Changes   Amazon DynamoDB now supports the following features: DynamoDB on-demand and transactions. DynamoDB on-demand is a flexible new billing option for DynamoDB capable of serving thousands of requests per second without capacity planning. DynamoDB on-demand offers simple pay-per-request pricing for read and write requests so that you only pay for what you use, making it easy to balance costs and performance. Transactions simplify the developer experience of making coordinated, all-or-nothing changes to multiple items both within and across tables. The new transactional APIs provide atomicity, consistency, isolation, and durability (ACID) in DynamoDB, helping developers support sophisticated workflows and business logic that requires adding, updating, or deleting multiple items using native, server-side transactions. For more information, see the Amazon DynamoDB Developer Guide.

2018/09/05 - 1 new api methods

Changes   New feature for Amazon DynamoDB.

2018/08/20 - 8 updated api methods

Changes   Added SSESpecification block to update-table command which allows users to modify table Server-Side Encryption. Added two new fields (SSEType and KMSMasterKeyId) to SSESpecification block used by create-table and update-table commands. Added new SSEDescription Status value UPDATING.

2018/08/06 - 4 updated api methods

Changes   Amazon DynamoDB Point-in-time recovery (PITR) provides continuous backups of your table data. DynamoDB now supports the ability to self-restore a deleted PITR enabled table. Now, when a table with PITR enabled is deleted, a system backup is automatically created and retained for 35 days (at no additional cost). System backups allow you to restore the deleted PITR enabled table to the state it was just before the point of deletion. For more information, see the Amazon DynamoDB Developer Guide.

2018/07/24 - 2 updated api methods

Changes   With this SDK update, APIs UpdateGlobalTableSettings and DescribeGlobalTableSettings now allow consistently configuring AutoScaling settings for a DynamoDB global table. Previously, they would only allow consistently setting IOPS. Now new APIs are being released, existing APIs are being extended.

2018/06/14 - 8 updated api methods

Changes   Added two new fields SSEType and KMSMasterKeyArn to SSEDescription block in describe-table output.

2018/04/30 - 2 new api methods

Changes   Adds two new APIs UpdateGlobalTableSettings and DescribeGlobalTableSettings. This update introduces new constraints in the CreateGlobalTable and UpdateGlobalTable APIs . Tables must have the same write capacity units. If Global Secondary Indexes exist then they must have the same write capacity units and key schema.

2018/03/26 - 2 new 1 updated api methods

Changes   Point-in-time recovery (PITR) provides continuous backups of your DynamoDB table data. With PITR, you do not have to worry about creating, maintaining, or scheduling backups. You enable PITR on your table and your backup is available for restore at any point in time from the moment you enable it, up to a maximum of the 35 preceding days. PITR provides continuous backups until you explicitly disable it. For more information, see the Amazon DynamoDB Developer Guide.

2018/02/08 - 7 updated api methods

Changes   Amazon DynamoDB now supports server-side encryption using a default service key (alias/aws/dynamodb) from the AWS Key Management Service (KMS). AWS KMS is a service that combines secure, highly available hardware and software to provide a key management system scaled for the cloud. AWS KMS is used via the AWS Management Console or APIs to centrally create encryption keys, define the policies that control how keys can be used, and audit key usage to prove they are being used correctly. For more information, see the Amazon DynamoDB Developer Guide.

2017/11/29 - 10 new 4 updated api methods

Changes   Amazon DynamoDB now supports the following features: Global Table and On-Demand Backup. Global Table is a fully-managed, multi-region, multi-master database. DynamoDB customers can now write anywhere and read anywhere with single-digit millisecond latency by performing database operations closest to where end users reside. Global Table also enables customers to disaster-proof their applications, keeping them running and data accessible even in the face of natural disasters or region disruptions. Customers can set up Global Table with just a few clicks in the AWS Management Console-no application rewrites required. On-Demand Backup capability is to protect data from loss due to application errors, and meet customers' archival needs for compliance and regulatory reasons. Customers can backup and restore their DynamoDB table data anytime, with a single-click in the AWS management console or a single API call. Backup and restore actions execute with zero impact on table performance or availability. For more information, see the Amazon DynamoDB Developer Guide.

2017/02/27 - 2 new api methods

Changes   Time to Live (TTL) is a feature that allows you to define when items in a table expire and can be purged from the database, so that you don't have to track expired data and delete it manually. With TTL enabled on a DynamoDB table, you can set a timestamp for deletion on a per-item basis, allowing you to limit storage usage to only those records that are relevant.

2017/01/17 - 3 new api methods

Changes   Adds support for tagging tables and indexes.
