Restore DynamoDb data from S3 incremental backups


$ npm install --save dynamo-incremental-restore


Example Files


var dynamoIncrementalRestore = require('../');

    Prefix: "ServiceFolder/TableFolder/ClientID",  // Where the files sit. Use parent folders and it should recursively find all child document/files e.g. Formsmith/Formsmith.Blue.FormSchema/543
    DestinationTableName: "Example Table Name" ,// e.g. Formsmith.Blue.FormSchema
    Bucket: "au-backup-bucket-name", // e.g. pageup-dynamo-backup
    restoreToPointInTime: new Date('2020-11-14T23:50:32.000Z'), //the last point in time you want to update a version
    region: "ap-southeast-2" //Dynamo Region. Change for each datacenter

This will be fine to run both on your local environment (for testing the dev datacenter) or uploaded into an EC2 instance with the appropriate permissions to access client data for backing up. Clone the repository into a machine you want to perform the task on and use node to run the script.


  1. Batch writes to Dynamo in blocks of 25, and handle unprocessed items
  2. Break process into three steps (Build Version List, Build Dynamo Requests, Send Requests to Dynamo)


See index.js


In lieu of a formal styleguide, take care to maintain the existing coding style. Add unit tests for any new or changed functionality. Lint and test your code using gulp.
