Problem while using local dynamoDB container Boto3 put item error

0 votes

I am testing out boto with a local dynamodb docker container, I get this error while putting a new item into the table. The table exists.

from __future__ import print_function # Python 2/3 compatibility
import boto3
import os

os.environ["AWS_ACCESS_KEY_ID"] = "localaccesskey"
os.environ["AWS_SECRET_ACCESS_KEY"] = "password"

conn = boto3.resource('dynamodb', aws_access_key_id="localaccesskey",  aws_secret_access_key="password", region_name='eu-west-1', endpoint_url="http://localhost:8000")

table = conn.Table('Movies')
        'username': 'janedoe',
        'first_name': 'Jane',
        'last_name': 'Doe',
        'age': 25,
        'account_type': 'standard_user',


/usr/bin/python2.7 /home/kshk/PycharmProjects/Skulldogo/
[dynamodb.Table(name=u'Movies'), dynamodb.Table(name=u'devApiConfig'), dynamodb.Table(name=u'devApiKeys'), dynamodb.Table(name=u'devObjectCache'), dynamodb.Table(name=u'devSessionCache'), dynamodb.Table(name=u'test'), dynamodb.Table(name=u'test1'), dynamodb.Table(name=u'test10')]

    raise ClientError(parsed_response, operation_name)
botocore.exceptions.ClientError: An error occurred (ValidationException) when calling the PutItem operation: One of the required keys was not given a value

any ideas???

DynamoDB does not autogenerate the ID when creating new records. Make sure to supply the hash key.

Oh and the range key too when defined.
