Create the browser script - Amazon SDK for JavaScript
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 Amazon SDK for JavaScript V3 API Reference Guide describes in detail all the API operations for the Amazon SDK for JavaScript version 3 (V3).

Starting October 1, 2022, Amazon SDK for JavaScript (v3) will end support for Internet Explorer 11 (IE 11). For details, see Announcing the end of support for Internet Explorer 11 in the Amazon SDK for JavaScript (v3).

Create the browser script

First, create the service client objects required for the example. Create a libs directory, create snsClient.js, and paste the code below into it. Replace REGION and IDENTITY_POOL_ID in each.


Use the ID of the Amazon Cognito identity pool you created in Create the Amazon resources .

import { CognitoIdentityClient } from "@aws-sdk/client-cognito-identity"; import { fromCognitoIdentityPool } from "@aws-sdk/credential-provider-cognito-identity"; import { SNSClient } from "@aws-sdk/client-sns"; const REGION = "REGION"; const IDENTITY_POOL_ID = "IDENTITY_POOL_ID"; // An Amazon Cognito Identity Pool ID. // Create an Amazon Comprehend service client object. const snsClient = new SNSClient({ region: REGION, credentials: fromCognitoIdentityPool({ client: new CognitoIdentityClient({ region: REGION }), identityPoolId: IDENTITY_POOL_ID, }), }); export { snsClient };

This code is available here on GitHub..

To create the browser script for this example, in a folder named DynamoDBApp, create a Node.js module with the file name add_data.js and paste the code below into it. The submitData function submits data to a DynamoDB table, and sends an SMS text to the app administrator using Amazon SNS.

In the submitData function, declare variables for the target phone number, the values entered on the app interface, and for the name of the Amazon S3 bucket. Next, create a parameters object for adding an item to the table. If none of the values is empty, submitData adds the item to the table, and sends the message. Remember to make the function available to the browser, with window.submitData = submitData.

// Import required AWS SDK clients and commands for Node.js import { PutItemCommand } from "@aws-sdk/client-dynamodb"; import { PublishCommand } from "@aws-sdk/client-sns"; import { snsClient } from "../libs/snsClient.js"; import { dynamoClient } from "../libs/dynamoClient.js"; export const submitData = async () => { //Set the parameters // Capture the values entered in each field in the browser (by id). const id = document.getElementById("id").value; const title = document.getElementById("title").value; const name = document.getElementById("name").value; const body = document.getElementById("body").value; //Set the table name. const tableName = "Items"; //Set the parameters for the table const params = { TableName: tableName, // Define the attributes and values of the item to be added. Adding ' + "" ' converts a value to // a string. Item: { id: { N: id + "" }, title: { S: title + "" }, name: { S: name + "" }, body: { S: body + "" }, }, }; // Check that all the fields are completed. if (id != "" && title != "" && name != "" && body != "") { try { //Upload the item to the table await dynamoClient.send(new PutItemCommand(params)); alert("Data added to table."); try { // Create the message parameters object. const messageParams = { Message: "A new item with ID value was added to the DynamoDB", PhoneNumber: "PHONE_NUMBER", //PHONE_NUMBER, in the E.164 phone number structure. // For example, ak standard local formatted number, such as (415) 555-2671, is +14155552671 in E.164 // format, where '1' in the country code. }; // Send the SNS message const data = await snsClient.send(new PublishCommand(messageParams)); console.log( "Success, message published. MessageID is " + data.MessageId ); } catch (err) { // Display error message if error is not sent console.error(err, err.stack); } } catch (err) { // Display error message if item is no added to table console.error( "An error occurred. Check the console for further information", err ); } // Display alert if all field are not completed. } else { alert("Enter data in each field."); } }; // Expose the function to the browser window.submitData = submitData;

Finally, run the following at the command prompt to bundle the JavaScript for this example in a file named main.js:

webpack add_data.js --mode development --target web --devtool false -o main.js

For information about installing webpack, see Bundling applications with webpack.

To run the app, open index.html on your browser.
