Dynamo Db Streams change trigger on region delete/recreate



I have global tables in Dynamo DB and use streams and lambda to capture changes in the table for auditing purpose. I wanted to check if let's we delete one of the regions, once we recreate the region and it auto sync the data from the table in another region, will it trigger change stream for existing entries as well? How does it maintain for what all changes it triggered earlier before the region went down?

During the initial bootstrap of data into any new global table region you won't get stream events, as it's basically doing the bootstrap by doing a table restore. Once the table starts accepting live writes to keep it in sync with other regions, you'll get stream events as part of those live writes.
