NoSQL Workbench for Amazon DynamoDB now supports AWS CloudFormation, so you can manage and modify DynamoDB data models with CloudFormation templates. In addition, you now can configure table capacity settings in NoSQL Workbench.

Designing scalable data models is essential to building massive-scale, operational, nonrelational databases. However, designing data models can be challenging, particularly when you are designing data models for new applications that have data access patterns you are still developing. With NoSQL Workbench, you can design and visualize nonrelational data models more easily by using a point-and-click interface, and ensure that the data models can support your application’s queries and access patterns. Now you can use CloudFormation templates to import existing data models into NoSQL Workbench and adapt them for new applications. You also can save and export data models in CloudFormation templates for collaboration, documentation, and presentations. You also can use NoSQL Workbench to configure the capacity settings of your tables and global secondary indexes.
NoSQL Workbench is free to download, and it is available for macOS, Linux, and Windows. To get started, download NoSQL Workbench. For more information, see AWS::DynamoDB::Table in the CloudFormation User Guide.
