DynamoDB Support

There is an inactive Github issue about DynamoDB support, which has reached 100 likes.

It would be nice to get some feedback about this! :slight_smile:

There hasn’t been any feedback on this since April, despite the topic having 130 upvotes on github

Given the choice of more databases or better visualisations, I know where I’d like the time spent.

There are plenty of solutions for getting data from DynamoDB into something more ‘queryable’

If you have a link to those better solutions, it would be great! I’m interested.

There are plenty, but these look most interesting
To SQL Server with scripting: https://www.mssqltips.com/sqlservertip/5621/importing-data-from-aws-dynamodb-into-sql-server-2017/

Zapier to SQL: https://zapier.com/apps/dynamodb/integrations/sql-server

To mysql with powershell: https://www.cdata.com/kb/tech/dynamodb-powershell-replicate.rst
with Zapier: https://zapier.com/apps/dynamodb/integrations/mysql

the zapier integrations are premium, but when I’ve used Zapier in the past I’ve been mostly impressed (just don’t lose your MFA details)

Panoply offers a very ‘queryable’ solution (ETL + Data Warehouse). https://panoply.io/integrations/amazon-dynamodb/metabase/
Here is a step by step tutorial for setting it up (albeit for Tableau)

Thanks! Looks interesting but way too expensive for my simple needs, unfortunately.
