Thanks James. I would be happy to contribute the scan processor for
DynamoDB. Just to clarify, based on your comment, we can't take all the
rows of the DynamoDB table and put it into another table. We have to do it
for one record at a time?

NiFi's GetDynamoDB processor uses the underlying BatchGetItem API, which
requires item keys as inputs. Iterating over the keys in a table would
require the Scan API, but NiFi does not have a processor to scan a DynamoDB
This would be a great addition to NiFi. If you have any interest in
Thanks James. I am looking to iterate through the table so that it takes
hash key values one by one. Do I achieve it through the expression
language? if I write an script to do that, how do I pass it to my processor?

The GetDynamoDB processor requires a hash key value to look up an item in
the table. The default setting is an Expression Language statement that
reads the hash key value from a flowfile attribute,
dynamodb.item.hash.key.value. But this is not required. You can change it
to any attribute
