Amazon DynamoDB is a fast and flexible NoSQL database service for all applications that need consistent, single-digit millisecond latency at any scale. It is a fully managed database and supports both document and key-value data models. Its flexible data model and reliable performance make it a great fit for mobile, web, gaming, ad-tech, IoT, and many other applications.

Amazon DynamoDB allows you to retrieve all items from a table by using the Scan operation. With Secondary Index Scan, you can now use the Scan operation on secondary indexes and retrieve all data from select attributes and items that are projected on a secondary index. Secondary Index Scan works on global and local secondary indexes. Secondary Indexes can be scanned from the DynamoDB console or by calling the Scan API with an additional parameter to specify the index. To learn more, please read our blog on Secondary Index Scan. Also, visit our documentation page to learn additional technical and operational details.

If you have any questions or feedback about Secondary Index Scan, please email us.

Amazon DynamoDB allows you to create Global Secondary Indexes (GSI) at table create time. GSIs enable you to write rich queries with filters. With online indexing, you can add or delete GSIs to a DynamoDB table at any time using the DynamoDB console or via a simple API call. While the GSI is being added or deleted, the DynamoDB table can still handle live traffic and provide continuous service at the provisioned throughput level. To learn more, please read Jeff Barr’s blog post on Online Indexing. You can also learn more about online indexing by reading our documentation page.

If you have any questions or feedback about Online Indexing, please email us.

DynamoDB Streams provides a time ordered sequence of item level changes in any DynamoDB table. The changes are de-duplicated and stored for 24 hours. This capability enables developers to extend the power of DynamoDB with cross-region replication, continuous analytics with Redshift integration, change notifications, and many others.  Learn more by reading our documentation.
