Article summary

This document describes the basic setup for using DynamoDB with Panoply.

  1. If necessary, whitelist Panoply.
    • To ensure data security, DynamoDB databases with production data are typically not publicly available. To allow Panoply to access your data, see Whitelisting.
  2. Click Data Sources in the navigation menu.
  3. Click the Add Data Source button.
  4. Search for DynamoDB and select it.
  5. Enter your API Key.
  6. Enter your API Secret.
  7. Enter your ** Region**.
  8. Select the DynamoDB tables to collect from the Data Available.
  9. Click Save Changes and then click Collect.
    • The data source appears grayed out while the collection runs.
    • You may add additional data sources while this collection runs.
    • You can monitor this collection from the Jobs page or the Data Sources page.
    • After a successful collection, navigate to the Tables page to review the data results.

This is all that is necessary to start collecting your data from DynamoDB, however there are a number of Advanced Settings you can use to customize your DynamoDB data source. We do not recommend changing Advanced Settings unless you are an experienced Panoply user.
