PutDynamoDBRecord

Description:

Inserts items into DynamoDB based on record-oriented data. The record fields are mapped into DynamoDB item fields, including partition and sort keys if set. Depending on the number of records the processor might execute the insert in multiple chunks in order to overcome DynamoDB's limitation on batch writing. This might result partially processed FlowFiles in which case the FlowFile will be transferred to the "unprocessed" relationship with the necessary attribute to retry later without duplicating the already executed inserts.

No Description Provided.
Table NameThe DynamoDB table name
Supports Expression Language: true (will be evaluated using variable registry only)
Partition Key StrategyPartition By Field
  • Partition By Field Uses the value of the Record field identified by the "Partition Key Field" property as partition key value.
  • Partition By Attribute Uses an incoming FlowFile attribute identified by "Partition Key Attribute" as the value of the partition key. The incoming Records must not contain field with the same name defined by the "Partition Key Field".
  • Generated UUID Uses a generated UUID as value for the partition key. The incoming Records must not contain field with the same name defined by the "Partition Key Field".
Defines the strategy the processor uses to assign partition key value to the inserted Items.
Partition Key FieldDefines the name of the partition key field in the DynamoDB table. Partition key is also known as hash key. Depending on the "Partition Key Strategy" the field value might come from the incoming Record or a generated one.
Supports Expression Language: true (will be evaluated using variable registry only)
Partition Key AttributeSpecifies the FlowFile attribute that will be used as the value of the partition key when using "Partition by attribute" partition key strategy.
Supports Expression Language: true (will be evaluated using variable registry only)

This Property is only considered if the [Partition Key Strategy] Property has a value of "Partition By Attribute".
Sort Key StrategyNone
  • None The processor will not assign sort key to the inserted Items.
  • Sort By Field Uses the value of the Record field identified by the "Sort Key Field" property as sort key value.
  • Generate Sequence The processor will assign a number for every item based on the original record's position in the incoming FlowFile. This will be used as sort key value.
Defines the strategy the processor uses to assign sort key to the inserted Items.
Sort Key FieldDefines the name of the sort key field in the DynamoDB table. Sort key is also known as range key.
Supports Expression Language: true (will be evaluated using variable registry only)

This Property is only considered if the [Sort Key Strategy] Property is set to one of the following values: [Sort By Field], [Generate Sequence]
Communications Timeout30 secsNo Description Provided.
Proxy Configuration ServiceController Service API:
ProxyConfigurationService
Implementation: StandardProxyConfigurationService
Specifies the Proxy Configuration Controller Service to proxy network requests. If set, it supersedes proxy settings configured per component.
SSL Context ServiceController Service API:
SSLContextService
Implementations: StandardSSLContextService
StandardRestrictedSSLContextService
Specifies an optional SSL Context Service that, if provided, will be used to create connections

Relationships:

NameDescription
unprocessedFlowFiles are routed to unprocessed relationship when DynamoDB is not able to process all the items in the request. Typical reasons are insufficient table throughput capacity and exceeding the maximum bytes per request. Unprocessed FlowFiles can be retried with a new request.
successFlowFiles are routed to success relationship
failureFlowFiles are routed to failure relationship

Reads Attributes:

NameDescription
dynamodb.chunks.processedNumber of chunks successfully inserted into DynamoDB. If not set, it is considered as 0
