IdentityServer4.Contrib.DynamoDB is a persistence layer using AWS DynamoDB for operational data capability for Identity Server 4. Specifically, this store provides implementation for IPersistedGrantStore.

How to use

You need to install the nuget package

then you can inject the operational store in the Identity Server 4 Configuration at startup:

public void ConfigureServices(IServiceCollection services)
    .AddOperationalStore(options =>
        options.DynamoDBContextConfig = new DynamoDBContextConfig
            TableNamePrefix = "Dev_",
            SkipVersionCheck = true,
            ConsistentRead = true,
            IgnoreNullValues = true

the solution approach

the solution was approached based on how the SQL Store storing the operational data, but the concept of DynamoDB as a NoSQL db is totally different than relational db concepts, all the operational data stores implement the following IPersistedGrantStore interface:

public interface IPersistedGrantStore
    Task StoreAsync(PersistedGrant grant);

    Task<PersistedGrant> GetAsync(string key);

    Task<IEnumerable<PersistedGrant>> GetAllAsync(PersistedGrantFilter filter);

    Task RemoveAsync(string key);

    Task RemoveAllAsync(PersistedGrantFilter filter);

with the IPersistedGrantStore contract, we notice that the GetAllAsync(filter), RemoveAllAsync(filter) defines a contract to read or remove all the grants in the store based on subject id, client ids and/or session ids and type of the grant, this is done in DynamoDB using the expensive Scan operation, if you are not happy with this implementation, you can override the implementation of GetAllAsync and RemoveAllAsync and use Query operation given that you already defined the right Indexes on DynamoDB table.

since DynamoDB has a Document Expiration feature based on a defined date time or time span, and to not implement a logic similar to SQL store implementation for cleaning up the store periodically from dangling grants, the store uses the ttl of DynamoDB while storing entries by setting Expiration value as linux epoch value.

Note: setting the Expiration without explicitly enabling Ttl on DynamoDB table will not expire the documents.
