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.
