We have added support for AWS PrivateLink connections to DynamoDB databases. If you’re on a Business Critical plan, you can now opt to always connect through a VPC endpoint if your database and fivetran are in the same AWS Region. In the connector setup form, set the Require PrivateLink toggle to ON. For more information, see our setup instructions.
We currently support private connection for the following AWS regions:
We now support syncing BINARY and BINARYSET data types from your source. In your destination, they will appear as BINARY and JSON data types respectively.
We have introduced packed mode, a new sync mode for DynamoDB tables with more than 1000 first-level attributes. Previously, we only supported unpacked mode and used it regardless of the number of columns in a table. We have chosen 1000 columns as the reasonable upper limit for unpacked mode. This limit is compatible with all of our supported data warehouses, which vary in the upper limit of columns they accept. For more details, see our DynamoDB documentation.
If you have a logging service connected to your Fivetran account, the import progress of your tables in the event logs will be visible in your logs as an
import_progress event. Table names will be in either the
IN_PROGRESS state, depending on their sync status. Tables that are not reported in the event have not started their import.
We have made DynamoDB alerts more informative. Alerts now show the names of the table that fell behind the schedule. You can select only those tables to perform re-sync instead of re-syncing all the tables.
You are now able to resync individual tables from the dashboard.
