Update Item in DYNAMO DB


Update item in Dynamo DB using Update item operation in Amazon Dynamo DB connector

Update Item :Edits an existing item’s attributes, or adds a new item to the table if it does not already exist. You can put, delete, or add attribute values. You can also perform a conditional update on an existing item (insert a new attribute name-value pair if it doesn’t exist, or replace an existing name-value pair if it has certain expected attribute values).

You can also return the item’s attribute values in the same Update Item operation using the ReturnValues parameter.

Helloo, Can you share the query component of dynamo db?
I keep getting the error message like below. My understanding is “KeyConditionExpression” is mandatory to be sent in the request to AWS. I have a primary key with string data type.

“Invalid KeyConditionExpression: Syntax error; token: \”‘\”, near: \”(‘ID\””
