Amazon DynamoDB

Amazon DynamoDB Streams provides API actions for accessing streams and processing stream records. To learn more about application development with Streams, see Capturing Table Activity with DynamoDB Streams in the Amazon DynamoDB Developer Guide.


To install the this package using NPM, simply type the following into a terminal window:

npm install @aws-sdk/client-dynamodb-streams-node

Getting Started


The AWS SDK is modulized by clients and commands in CommonJS modules. To send a request, you only need to import the client(DynamoDBStreamsClient) and the commands you need, for example DescribeStreamCommand:

const {
} = require("@aws-sdk/client-dynamodb-streams-node/DynamoDBStreamsClient");
const {
} = require("@aws-sdk/client-dynamodb-streams-node/commands/DescribeStreamCommand");
import { DynamoDBStreamsClient } from "@aws-sdk/client-dynamodb-streams-node/DynamoDBStreamsClient";
import { DescribeStreamCommand } from "@aws-sdk/client-dynamodb-streams-node/commands/DescribeStreamCommand";


To send a request, you:

  • Initiate client with configuration (e.g. credentials, region). For more information you can refer to the API reference.
  • Initiate command with input parameters.
  • Call send operation on client with command object as input.
  • If you are using a custom http handler, you may call destroy() to close open connections.
const dynamoDBStreams = new DynamoDBStreamsClient({region: 'region'});
//clients can be shared by different commands
const params = {
  StreamArn: /**a string value*/,
const describeStreamCommand = new DescribeStreamCommand(params);
dynamoDBStreams.send(describeStreamCommand).then(data => {
    // do something
}).catch(error => {
    // error handling

In addition to using promises, there are 2 other ways to send a request:

// async/await
try {
  const data = await dynamoDBStreams.send(describeStreamCommand);
  // do something
} catch (error) {
  // error handling
// callback
dynamoDBStreams.send(describeStreamCommand, (err, data) => {
  //do something

The SDK can also send requests using the simplified callback style from version 2 of the SDK.

import * as AWS from "@aws-sdk/@aws-sdk/client-dynamodb-streams-node/DynamoDBStreams";
const dynamoDBStreams = new AWS.DynamoDBStreams({ region: "region" });
dynamoDBStreams.describeStream(params, (err, data) => {
  //do something


When the service returns an exception, the error will include the exception information, as well as response metadata (e.g. request id).

try {
  const data = await dynamoDBStreams.send(describeStreamCommand);
  // do something
} catch (error) {
  const metadata = error.$metadata;
    `requestId: ${metadata.requestId}
cfId: ${metadata.cfId}
extendedRequestId: ${metadata.extendedRequestId}`
The keys within exceptions are also parsed. You can access them by specifying exception names:
    if( === 'SomeServiceException') {
        const value = error.specialKeyInException;
