This web service provides atomic counters as an add-on feature for the NoSQL cloud database Amazon DynamoDB. Specifically, it provides an auto-increment attribute: unique values for the id column in DynamoDB tables.
Another feature of Stateful Web Primitives is a concurrent lock. It allows for setting up an atomic lock, running sensitive processes, and then removing the lock. Only one process at a time will be allowed while the lock is in place.
The following is a list of historical changes that were made to this asset. Typically, once an API is published on ProgrammableWeb.com, the data we keep about that asset gets updated over the course of its life. For example, the endpoint or home page of the documentation might change. As a means of enforcing the integrity of our data, every time a non-trivial change is made to the data we keep about an asset, we require the entry of some changelog text before that change can be saved. This way, we have a great audit trail of all activity surrounding the asset. For each asset, the changelogs begins with the moment an asset is approved for publication on ProgrammableWeb. If you spot an error in our data and believe that a record needs to be updated in some way, the ProgrammableWeb team would very much like to hear from you at firstname.lastname@example.org
So far, we don't have a record of any changes to this API
