DynamoDB Dynomite Model Magic Fields

Magic Fields: Timestamps

You might notice that created_at and updated_at are also available. You get these “magic fields” for free. Every dynomite model automatically will set fields created_at and updated_at.

Magic Fields: Id

Every dynomite model also will have some automatic behavior for the id field. It will automatically be set. Example:

$ jets console
> Post.first.id
=> "post-A2uxLhRzIYdqWwtN"

You can also set the id field to a specific desired value:

Post.create(id: "myid")
