AWS DynamoDB binding spec
To setup AWS DynamoDB binding create a component of type
bindings.aws.dynamodb. See this guide on how to create and apply a binding configuration.
See Authenticating to AWS for information about authentication-related attributes
apiVersion: dapr.io/v1alpha1 kind: Component metadata: name: <NAME> spec: type: bindings.aws.dynamodb version: v1 metadata: - name: table value: "items" - name: region value: "us-west-2" - name: accessKey value: "*****************" - name: secretKey value: "*****************" - name: sessionToken value: "*****************" - name: direction value: "output"
WarningThe above example uses secrets as plain strings. It is recommended to use a secret store for the secrets as described here.

ImportantWhen running the Dapr sidecar (daprd) with your application on EKS (AWS Kubernetes), if you’re using a node/pod that has already been attached to an IAM policy defining access to AWS resources, you must not provide AWS access-key, secret-key, and tokens in the definition of the component spec you’re using.
This component supports output binding with the following operations:
- Basic schema for a Dapr component
- Bindings building block
- How-To: Trigger application with input binding
- How-To: Use bindings to interface with external resources
- Bindings API reference
- Authenticating to AWS
