Learn how to create a table in DynamoDB, populate it with data, and query it using both primary keys and user-defined indexes.
- [Instructor] Let's create a simple DynamoDB table.…Here at the AWS console home,…you can see that I've recently visited DynamoDB,…so it's link is already here.…However, if you don't have this…you can always just type dynamo into the drop down,…and select the first result.…I don't have any tables yet,…so I see the DynamoDB welcome page…and the big blue button that says Create table.…If you look in the chapter for exercise files,…you'll see a document called filmdata.json.…It contains a series of records…giving information about popular movies.…
That's what we'll use to create our table.…We'll call it film underscore data.…Now we have to select the primary key,…which we're reminded here is also the partition key.…We'll use film title.…Remember, the primary key needs to be…not only evenly distributed…but something that you're going to commonly search on.…We'll definitely want to be able to search…on the film title.…We should also add a sort key.…If you look at the data,…you'll see that one view of it is always present…
