    Need help.

  4. On executing the html, if you are not getting any data from dynamodb then there is fault on api side. After clicking on deploy api and selecting the stage, remember to save changes to stage option which is on the bottom. Then copy the static url and paste it again. You will get the response.

  5. I used the below Java script to connect to my Get api. But always getting status as 0. It will be helpful if someone cal help me to get it resolved please.

    function CallFunc(RollNumber){

    var xhttp = new XMLHttpRequest();


    xhttp.onreadystatechange = function() {

    if (this.readyState == 4 && this.status == 200){






  6. Hello Vijay,

    I keep receiving HTTP status code as 0. What do I miss in this? Can someone please help me on this.


  7. Thanks Mr Vijay. Your project is all well, but from node.js version 10 there should be a little change in the Lambda code.
    The updated & tested Lambda code is-
    const AWS = require('aws-sdk');
    var docClient = new AWS.DynamoDB.DocumentClient();
    var tableName = "StudentDetails";

    exports.handler = (event, context, callback) => {

    var params = {
    TableName : tableName,
    "Roll" : event.Roll
    docClient.get(params, function(err,data){
    callback(err, data);
    }) ;
    } ;

    Thanks 🙂

  9. Hi Vijay, Great Explanation,Can you please make some more video on Query, Batch getitems and Delete Items in Dynamodb .

  10. Hi Vijay , I followed each and every step and working fine till the integration of Lambda with Api and Dynamo DB. Also i have configured S3 bucket and uploaded the frontend code with my Api URL but when i to try fetch the data by clicking on GetCustomerDetail button then it is not returning anything. Please advise.

  11. Thankyou Vijay for such a great explanation … Actually i need to understand if i am having any external DB other than dynamo DB then how can i connect it with Lambda and how to define the table names and Key. As there might be so many tables into the DB. Please advise.

  12. Thank you, great video! I just want to point out that if you come across an issue while running Lambda function (minute 45) "errorMessage": "Missing required key", the fix is that k should be capital K in key

  13. Thank you. I would like to add "Age " in the database. what will be the code in HTML in node.js for age? self.age = ko.observable(" ") and self.age(data.Item.Age),?

  14. Great video, thanks a lot! Minute 56:16…Front end code from himself in github:

  15. I found a very good video that explains this!
