Connecting to DynamoDB

Creating a new connection

  1. Open the connections dialogue. See managing connections for more information.
  2. Click the New Connection button at the bottom-left of the dialogue.
  3. From the Database dropdown, select DynamoDB.
  4. Give your connection a Name so you can easily identify it.
  5. Select the AWS Region that your database lives in.
  6. Provision an AWS IAM user Ezfire can use to access DynamoDB. See authenticating an AWS service for more information. In particular, the AWS IAM user needs one of the following roles:
    • AmazonDynamoDBReadOnlyAccess for a read-only connection
    • AmazonDynamoDBFullAccess for a read/write connection.
  7. Provide the Access Key ID and Secret Access Key for a programmatic access key associated with the AWS IAM user.
  8. Click the Save button to save your connection.

Your DynamoDB connection is now ready to use.
