DESCRIPTION

AWS Step Functions

AWS Step Functions is a service that lets you coordinate the components of distributed applications and microservices using visual workflows.

You can use Step Functions to build applications from individual components, each of which performs a discrete function, or task, allowing you to scale and change applications quickly. Step Functions provides a console that helps visualize the components of your application as a series of steps. Step Functions automatically triggers and tracks each step, and retries steps when there are errors, so your application executes predictably and in the right order every time. Step Functions logs the state of each step, so you can quickly diagnose and debug any issues.

Step Functions manages operations and underlying infrastructure to ensure your application is available at any scale. You can run tasks on AWS, your own servers, or any system that has access to AWS. You can access and use Step Functions using the console, the AWS SDKs, or an HTTP API. For more information about Step Functions, see the AWS Step Functions Developer Guide (http://docs.aws.amazon.com/step-functions/latest/dg/welcome.html) .

METHODS

CreateActivity

Name => Str

Each argument is described in detail in: Paws::StepFunctions::CreateActivity

Returns: a Paws::StepFunctions::CreateActivityOutput instance

Creates an activity. An activity is a task that you write in any programming language and host on any machine that has access to AWS Step Functions. Activities must poll Step Functions using the GetActivityTask API action and respond using SendTask* API actions. This function lets Step Functions know the existence of your activity and returns an identifier for use in a state machine and when polling from the activity.

CreateStateMachine

Definition => Str
Name => Str
RoleArn => Str

Each argument is described in detail in: Paws::StepFunctions::CreateStateMachine

Returns: a Paws::StepFunctions::CreateStateMachineOutput instance

Creates a state machine. A state machine consists of a collection of states that can do work (Task states), determine to which states to transition next (Choice states), stop an execution with an error (Fail states), and so on. State machines are specified using a JSON-based, structured language.

DeleteActivity

ActivityArn => Str

Each argument is described in detail in: Paws::StepFunctions::DeleteActivity

Returns: a Paws::StepFunctions::DeleteActivityOutput instance

Deletes an activity.

DeleteStateMachine

StateMachineArn => Str

Each argument is described in detail in: Paws::StepFunctions::DeleteStateMachine

Returns: a Paws::StepFunctions::DeleteStateMachineOutput instance

Deletes a state machine. This is an asynchronous operation: It sets the state machine's status to DELETING and begins the deletion process. Each state machine execution is deleted the next time it makes a state transition.

The state machine itself is deleted after all executions are completed or deleted.

DescribeActivity

ActivityArn => Str

Each argument is described in detail in: Paws::StepFunctions::DescribeActivity

Returns: a Paws::StepFunctions::DescribeActivityOutput instance

Describes an activity.

This operation is eventually consistent. The results are best effort and may not reflect very recent updates and changes.

DescribeExecution

ExecutionArn => Str

Each argument is described in detail in: Paws::StepFunctions::DescribeExecution

Returns: a Paws::StepFunctions::DescribeExecutionOutput instance

Describes an execution.

This operation is eventually consistent. The results are best effort and may not reflect very recent updates and changes.

DescribeStateMachine

StateMachineArn => Str

Each argument is described in detail in: Paws::StepFunctions::DescribeStateMachine

Returns: a Paws::StepFunctions::DescribeStateMachineOutput instance

Describes a state machine.

This operation is eventually consistent. The results are best effort and may not reflect very recent updates and changes.

DescribeStateMachineForExecution

ExecutionArn => Str

Each argument is described in detail in: Paws::StepFunctions::DescribeStateMachineForExecution

Returns: a Paws::StepFunctions::DescribeStateMachineForExecutionOutput instance

Describes the state machine associated with a specific execution.

This operation is eventually consistent. The results are best effort and may not reflect very recent updates and changes.

GetActivityTask

ActivityArn => Str
[WorkerName => Str]

Each argument is described in detail in: Paws::StepFunctions::GetActivityTask

Returns: a Paws::StepFunctions::GetActivityTaskOutput instance

Used by workers to retrieve a task (with the specified activity ARN) which has been scheduled for execution by a running state machine. This initiates a long poll, where the service holds the HTTP connection open and responds as soon as a task becomes available (i.e. an execution of a task of this type is needed.) The maximum time the service holds on to the request before responding is 60 seconds. If no task is available within 60 seconds, the poll returns a taskToken with a null string.

Workers should set their client side socket timeout to at least 65 seconds (5 seconds higher than the maximum time the service may hold the poll request).

Polling with GetActivityTask can cause latency in some implementations. See Avoid Latency When Polling for Activity Tasks (http://docs.aws.amazon.com/step-functions/latest/dg/bp-activity-pollers.html) in the Step Functions Developer Guide.

GetExecutionHistory

ExecutionArn => Str
[MaxResults => Int]
[NextToken => Str]
[ReverseOrder => Bool]

Each argument is described in detail in: Paws::StepFunctions::GetExecutionHistory

Returns: a Paws::StepFunctions::GetExecutionHistoryOutput instance

Returns the history of the specified execution as a list of events. By default, the results are returned in ascending order of the timeStamp of the events. Use the reverseOrder parameter to get the latest events first.

If nextToken is returned, there are more results available. The value of nextToken is a unique pagination token for each page. Make the call again using the returned token to retrieve the next page. Keep all other arguments unchanged. Each pagination token expires after 24 hours. Using an expired pagination token will return an HTTP 400 InvalidToken error.

ListActivities

[MaxResults => Int]
[NextToken => Str]

Each argument is described in detail in: Paws::StepFunctions::ListActivities

Returns: a Paws::StepFunctions::ListActivitiesOutput instance

Lists the existing activities.

If nextToken is returned, there are more results available. The value of nextToken is a unique pagination token for each page. Make the call again using the returned token to retrieve the next page. Keep all other arguments unchanged. Each pagination token expires after 24 hours. Using an expired pagination token will return an HTTP 400 InvalidToken error.

This operation is eventually consistent. The results are best effort and may not reflect very recent updates and changes.

ListExecutions

StateMachineArn => Str
[MaxResults => Int]
[NextToken => Str]
[StatusFilter => Str]

Each argument is described in detail in: Paws::StepFunctions::ListExecutions

Returns: a Paws::StepFunctions::ListExecutionsOutput instance

Lists the executions of a state machine that meet the filtering criteria. Results are sorted by time, with the most recent execution first.

If nextToken is returned, there are more results available. The value of nextToken is a unique pagination token for each page. Make the call again using the returned token to retrieve the next page. Keep all other arguments unchanged. Each pagination token expires after 24 hours. Using an expired pagination token will return an HTTP 400 InvalidToken error.

This operation is eventually consistent. The results are best effort and may not reflect very recent updates and changes.

ListStateMachines

[MaxResults => Int]
[NextToken => Str]

Each argument is described in detail in: Paws::StepFunctions::ListStateMachines

Returns: a Paws::StepFunctions::ListStateMachinesOutput instance

Lists the existing state machines.

If nextToken is returned, there are more results available. The value of nextToken is a unique pagination token for each page. Make the call again using the returned token to retrieve the next page. Keep all other arguments unchanged. Each pagination token expires after 24 hours. Using an expired pagination token will return an HTTP 400 InvalidToken error.

This operation is eventually consistent. The results are best effort and may not reflect very recent updates and changes.

ListTagsForResource

ResourceArn => Str

Each argument is described in detail in: Paws::StepFunctions::ListTagsForResource

Returns: a Paws::StepFunctions::ListTagsForResourceOutput instance

List tags for a given resource.

SendTaskFailure

TaskToken => Str
[Cause => Str]
[Error => Str]

Each argument is described in detail in: Paws::StepFunctions::SendTaskFailure

Returns: a Paws::StepFunctions::SendTaskFailureOutput instance

Used by workers to report that the task identified by the taskToken failed.

SendTaskHeartbeat

TaskToken => Str

Each argument is described in detail in: Paws::StepFunctions::SendTaskHeartbeat

Returns: a Paws::StepFunctions::SendTaskHeartbeatOutput instance

Used by workers to report to the service that the task represented by the specified taskToken is still making progress. This action resets the Heartbeat clock. The Heartbeat threshold is specified in the state machine's Amazon States Language definition. This action does not in itself create an event in the execution history. However, if the task times out, the execution history contains an ActivityTimedOut event.

The Timeout of a task, defined in the state machine's Amazon States Language definition, is its maximum allowed duration, regardless of the number of SendTaskHeartbeat requests received.

This operation is only useful for long-lived tasks to report the liveliness of the task.

SendTaskSuccess

Output => Str
TaskToken => Str

Each argument is described in detail in: Paws::StepFunctions::SendTaskSuccess

Returns: a Paws::StepFunctions::SendTaskSuccessOutput instance

Used by workers to report that the task identified by the taskToken completed successfully.

StartExecution

StateMachineArn => Str
[Input => Str]
[Name => Str]

Each argument is described in detail in: Paws::StepFunctions::StartExecution

Returns: a Paws::StepFunctions::StartExecutionOutput instance

Starts a state machine execution.

StartExecution is idempotent. If StartExecution is called with the same name and input as a running execution, the call will succeed and return the same response as the original request. If the execution is closed or if the input is different, it will return a 400 ExecutionAlreadyExists error. Names can be reused after 90 days.

StopExecution

ExecutionArn => Str
[Cause => Str]
[Error => Str]

Each argument is described in detail in: Paws::StepFunctions::StopExecution

Returns: a Paws::StepFunctions::StopExecutionOutput instance

Stops an execution.

TagResource

ResourceArn => Str
Tags => ArrayRef[Paws::StepFunctions::Tag]

Each argument is described in detail in: Paws::StepFunctions::TagResource

Returns: a Paws::StepFunctions::TagResourceOutput instance

Add a tag to a Step Functions resource.

UntagResource

ResourceArn => Str
TagKeys => ArrayRef[Str|Undef]

Each argument is described in detail in: Paws::StepFunctions::UntagResource

Returns: a Paws::StepFunctions::UntagResourceOutput instance

Remove a tag from a Step Functions resource

UpdateStateMachine

StateMachineArn => Str
[Definition => Str]
[RoleArn => Str]

Each argument is described in detail in: Paws::StepFunctions::UpdateStateMachine

Returns: a Paws::StepFunctions::UpdateStateMachineOutput instance

Updates an existing state machine by modifying its definition and/or roleArn. Running executions will continue to use the previous definition and roleArn. You must include at least one of definition or roleArn or you will receive a MissingRequiredParameter error.

All StartExecution calls within a few seconds will use the updated definition and roleArn. Executions started immediately after calling UpdateStateMachine may use the previous state machine definition and roleArn.
