Services or capabilities described in Amazon Web Services documentation might vary by Region. To see the differences applicable to the China Regions, see Getting Started with Amazon Web Services in China.


The 03-getitem-test.py program performs GetItem operations on TryDaxTable. This example is given for the Region eu-west-1.
