Hi Experts,

I would like the Python code to update the DynamoDB table called - inventTest 



import json
 import boto3
 import logging
 import os
 import botocore
 from datetime import datetime
 import traceback
 import time
 import sys, subprocess, boto3
 import re
 import io
 import csv
 from botocore.exceptions import ClientError
 from boto3.dynamodb.conditions import Key, Attr
 def getInstanceDetails(event, context):
     dynamodb = boto3.client('dynamodb', region_name='eu-west-2')
     table = dynamodb.Table('invenTest')
     dynamodb.put_item(TableName='invesTest', Item={'instanceId':{'S':'m},'key2':{'N':'value2'}})




dynamoDB invenTest Table has the following columns


* InstanceId = key id

* account Id

* subnetId


 Any idea or Direction much appreciated
