AWS Config Rule: DynamoDB PITR Enabled


Fernando Honig

Last Update 8 months ago

Description: Checks that point in time recovery (PITR) is enabled for Amazon DynamoDB tables. The rule is NON_COMPLIANT if point in time recovery is not enabled for Amazon DynamoDB tables.

Trigger type: Configuration changes

AWS Region: All supported AWS regions except Asia Pacific (Osaka) Region

How to Resolve Manually

To resolve this manually, login to your AWS Management Console and navigate to DynamoDB.

Select the NON_COMPLIANT DynamoDB Table and click on Enable under Point-in-time recovery and click Enable 

This needs to be done in all accounts, regions and tables that are NON_COMPLIANT

How to Resolve with StackZone

You can resolve with StackZone by enabling PITR Auto-Remediation.

Go to Baseline Services -> Config Rules Regional -> DynamoDB and enable Point in Time Remediation

Remember to Save Settings and Apply your changes so the automation configures this in all accounts and enabled regions.

This will remediate all tables and will make them COMPLIANT.
