AWS Lambda launches checkpointing for Amazon Kinesis and Amazon DynamoDB Streams

AWS Lambda now allows customers to automatically checkpoint records that have been successfully processed for Amazon Kinesis and Amazon DynamoDB Streams, using a new parameter, FunctionResponseType. When customers set this parameter to “Report Batch Item Failure”, if a batch fails to process, only records after the last successful message are retried. This reduces duplicate processing, and gives customers more options for failure handling.
