Import Existing DynamoDB table schema to NoSQL workbench's Data model


Importing data models that are exported by NoSQL workbench is available but is there a way to create data model json from current existing table?

Output of json from awscli ( aws dynamodb describe-table ) seems to be little different from what we have to import to NoSQL workbench... (ex. KeyAttributes, NonKeyAttributes,...)
Would be great if it's importable from Operation builder's tab.

Thanks for the feedback.

There isn't a way right now to create a data model from an existing table. You will have to manually create the tables in NoSQL Workbench model. This is one of the features in our backlog which a lot of users have asked for it. "aws dynamodb describe-table" is the same ask as before. You want the existing tables to be importable into a NoSQL Workbench model. As you've identified we already import the existing tables in Operation Builder so we will support importing existing tables in a model soon. Stay tuned for more updates.
