Dynamo DB

Version LATEST

Set up


To set up, the connector requires your AWS Access Key ID (AWS ID) and AWS Access Key Secret (AWS Secret), obtainable through AWS (Amazon Web Services). You can see how to get these details here.


Cost for high data volumes

DynamoDB charges on a pay-as-you-go basis for using their API.

Depending on how your Dynamo DB is set up and how big the tables are, you could be charged high fees to use this connector.

To minimize fees, make sure the credentials you use with Kleene only have access to the DynamoDB instance or table you’re looking to extract from, and nothing else.

Due to this, it is recommended to extract Dynamo DB data by first transferring to Amazon S3, then using the Kleene S3 connector. See how to do that here.


  1. Enter which table you would like to export.
  2. Select your preferred, throttling approach, if you are unsure, you can leave this set to 0.
  3. Enter the columns that you would like to ingest, separated by a comma.
  4. You can also choose to exclude the document column and its attributes.
