I am trying to import a DynamoDB table using CLI and my IAM User has the complete access and permissions, even though I am getting this error:

An error occurred (AccessDeniedException) when calling the BatchWriteItem operation: User: arn:aws:iam::********:user/Nitesh is not authorized to perform: dynamodb:BatchWriteItem on resource: arn:aws:dynamodb:us-east-1:********:table/History with an explicit deny

Hello @Nitesh,

Many a time what happens is that even though the user policy has AmazonDynamoDBFullAccess, policy for the user also has an explicit deny on resource arn:aws:dynamodb:us-east-1:********:table/History.
The one solution is to remove the explict deny policy for the user but there is a reason the explicit policy is there.

See this documentation on Whether a request is to be allowed or denied from Amazon. Hope this helps.
