1. Create an Amazon DynamoDB Table

Use the Amazon DynamoDB Console to create a new DynamoDB table. Call your table Rides and give it a partition key called RideId with type String. The table name and partition key are case sensitive. Make sure you use the exact IDs provided. Use the defaults for all other settings.

After you’ve created the table, record the ARN for use in the next step.
