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.
