response_iterator = paginator.paginate(
    TimeRangeLowerBound=datetime(2015, 1, 1),
    TimeRangeUpperBound=datetime(2015, 1, 1),
        'MaxItems': 123,
        'PageSize': 123,
        'StartingToken': 'string'
  • TableName (string) -- The backups from the table specified by TableName are listed.
  • TimeRangeLowerBound (datetime) -- Only backups created after this time are listed. TimeRangeLowerBound is inclusive.
  • TimeRangeUpperBound (datetime) -- Only backups created before this time are listed. TimeRangeUpperBound is exclusive.
  • BackupType (string) --

    The backups from the table specified by BackupType are listed.

    Where BackupType can be:

    • USER - On-demand backup created by you. (The default setting if no other backup types are specified.)
    • SYSTEM - On-demand backup automatically created by DynamoDB.
    • ALL - All types of on-demand backups (USER and SYSTEM).
  • PaginationConfig (dict) --

    A dictionary that provides parameters to control pagination.

    • MaxItems (integer) --

      The total number of items to return. If the total number of items available is more than the value specified in max-items then a NextToken will be provided in the output that you can use to resume pagination.

    • PageSize (integer) --

      The size of each page.

    • StartingToken (string) --

      A token to specify where to start paginating. This is the NextToken from a previous response.
