Chalice: Unable to connect with DynamoDB through pynamodb

0 votes

It works fine on my local machine with .aws configured. However, lambda is unable to connect with the dynamodb tables through the auto-generated iam role. I even tried adding a policy explicitly to the role via IAM console:

            "Sid": "VisualEditor1",
            "Effect": "Allow",
            "Action": "dynamodb:*",
            "Resource": "arn:aws:dynamodb:ap-south-1:*:table/*"

But still getting this error (Debug Logs):

An error occurred (AccessDeniedException) on request (SQ60ECK3UMM6LLEBC2K04S6HE7VV4KQNSO5AEMVJF66Q9ASUAAJG) on table (lmk_staging_posts) when calling the DescribeTable operation:

You have to add "autogen_policy":false, to config.json and put all your policies in policy-dev.json, for example:

  "Version": "2012-10-17",
  "Statement": [
      "Effect": "Allow",
      "Action": [
      "Resource": "*"

In this way you setup your policies manually.
