Data Dictionary

Data Dictionary

Because DynamoDB data comes from a database system, Panoply cannot provide a data dictionary. But Panoply does automate the data schema for the collected data. This section includes useful information about the Panoply automations. You can adjust these settings in your data source under Advanced Settings.

Columns

A column in a table uses the same data type for all values in that column. Panoply automatically chooses the data type for each column based on the available values. This is important to note for this data source. If even one value in a column has text, then the entire column is considered data type text

Metadata

The following metadata columns are added to the destination table(s):

  • __pk: The primary key value as defined in the table
  • __senttime - Formatted as a datetime, such as 2020-04-26T01:26:14.695Z.
  • __updatetime - Formatted as a datetime, such as 2020-04-26T01:26:14.695Z.
