Defined in:
(unknown)

Overview

Constructs a service interface object. Each API operation is exposed as a function on service.

Sending a Request Using SWF

var swf = new AWS.SWF();
swf.countClosedWorkflowExecutions(params, function (err, data) {
  if (err) console.log(err, err.stack); // an error occurred
  else     console.log(data);           // successful response
});

Locking the API Version

In order to ensure that the SWF object uses this specific API, you can construct the object by passing the apiVersion option to the constructor:

var swf = new AWS.SWF({apiVersion: '2012-01-25'});

You can also set the API version globally in AWS.config.apiVersions using the swf service identifier:

AWS.config.apiVersions = {
  swf: '2012-01-25',
  // other service API versions
};

var swf = new AWS.SWF();

Constructor Details

new AWS.SWF(options = {}) ⇒ Object

Constructs a service object. This object has one method for each API operation.

Examples:

Constructing a SWF object

var swf = new AWS.SWF({apiVersion: '2012-01-25'});

Options Hash (options):

  • params (map)

    An optional map of parameters to bind to every request sent by this service object. For more information on bound parameters, see "Working with Services" in the Getting Started Guide.

  • endpoint (String)

    The endpoint URI to send requests to. The default endpoint is built from the configured region. The endpoint should be a string like 'https://{service}.{region}.amazonaws.com'.

  • accessKeyId (String)

    your AWS access key ID.

  • secretAccessKey (String)

    your AWS secret access key.

  • sessionToken (AWS.Credentials)

    the optional AWS session token to sign requests with.

  • credentials (AWS.Credentials)

    the AWS credentials to sign requests with. You can either specify this object, or specify the accessKeyId and secretAccessKey options directly.

  • credentialProvider (AWS.CredentialProviderChain)

    the provider chain used to resolve credentials if no static credentials property is set.

  • region (String)

    the region to send service requests to. See AWS.SWF.region for more information.

  • maxRetries (Integer)

    the maximum amount of retries to attempt with a request. See AWS.SWF.maxRetries for more information.

  • maxRedirects (Integer)

    the maximum amount of redirects to follow with a request. See AWS.SWF.maxRedirects for more information.

  • sslEnabled (Boolean)

    whether to enable SSL for requests.

  • paramValidation (Boolean|map)

    whether input parameters should be validated against the operation description before sending the request. Defaults to true. Pass a map to enable any of the following specific validation features:

    • min [Boolean] — Validates that a value meets the min constraint. This is enabled by default when paramValidation is set to true.
    • max [Boolean] — Validates that a value meets the max constraint.
    • pattern [Boolean] — Validates that a string value matches a regular expression.
    • enum [Boolean] — Validates that a string value matches one of the allowable enum values.
  • computeChecksums (Boolean)

    whether to compute checksums for payload bodies when the service accepts it (currently supported in S3 only)

  • convertResponseTypes (Boolean)

    whether types are converted when parsing response data. Currently only supported for JSON based services. Turning this off may improve performance on large response payloads. Defaults to true.

  • correctClockSkew (Boolean)

    whether to apply a clock skew correction and retry requests that fail because of an skewed client clock. Defaults to false.

  • s3ForcePathStyle (Boolean)

    whether to force path style URLs for S3 objects.

  • s3BucketEndpoint (Boolean)

    whether the provided endpoint addresses an individual bucket (false if it addresses the root API endpoint). Note that setting this configuration option requires an endpoint to be provided explicitly to the service constructor.

  • s3DisableBodySigning (Boolean)

    whether S3 body signing should be disabled when using signature version v4. Body signing can only be disabled when using https. Defaults to true.

  • retryDelayOptions (map)

    A set of options to configure the retry delay on retryable errors. Currently supported options are:

    • base [Integer] — The base number of milliseconds to use in the exponential backoff for operation retries. Defaults to 100 ms for all services except DynamoDB, where it defaults to 50ms.
    • customBackoff [function] — A custom function that accepts a retry count and returns the amount of time to delay in milliseconds. The base option will be ignored if this option is supplied.
  • httpOptions (map)

    A set of options to pass to the low-level HTTP request. Currently supported options are:

    • proxy [String] — the URL to proxy requests through
    • agent [http.Agent, https.Agent] — the Agent object to perform HTTP requests with. Used for connection pooling. Defaults to the global agent (http.globalAgent) for non-SSL connections. Note that for SSL connections, a special Agent object is used in order to enable peer certificate verification. This feature is only available in the Node.js environment.
    • connectTimeout [Integer] — Sets the socket to timeout after failing to establish a connection with the server after connectTimeout milliseconds. This timeout has no effect once a socket connection has been established.
    • timeout [Integer] — Sets the socket to timeout after timeout milliseconds of inactivity on the socket. Defaults to two minutes (120000).
    • xhrAsync [Boolean] — Whether the SDK will send asynchronous HTTP requests. Used in the browser environment only. Set to false to send requests synchronously. Defaults to true (async on).
    • xhrWithCredentials [Boolean] — Sets the "withCredentials" property of an XMLHttpRequest object. Used in the browser environment only. Defaults to false.
  • apiVersion (String, Date)

    a String in YYYY-MM-DD format (or a date) that represents the latest possible API version that can be used in all services (unless overridden by apiVersions). Specify 'latest' to use the latest possible version.

  • apiVersions (map<String, String|Date>)

    a map of service identifiers (the lowercase service class name) with the API version to use when instantiating a service. Specify 'latest' for each individual that can use the latest available version.

  • logger (#write, #log)

    an object that responds to .write() (like a stream) or .log() (like the console object) in order to log information about requests

  • systemClockOffset (Number)

    an offset value in milliseconds to apply to all signing times. Use this to compensate for clock skew when your system may be out of sync with the service time. Note that this configuration option can only be applied to the global AWS.config object and cannot be overridden in service-specific configuration. Defaults to 0 milliseconds.

  • signatureVersion (String)

    the signature version to sign requests with (overriding the API configuration). Possible values are: 'v2', 'v3', 'v4'.

  • signatureCache (Boolean)

    whether the signature to sign requests with (overriding the API configuration) is cached. Only applies to the signature version 'v4'. Defaults to true.

Method Details

countClosedWorkflowExecutions(params = {}, callback) ⇒ AWS.Request

Returns the number of closed workflow executions within the given domain that meet the specified filtering criteria.

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

Access Control

You can use IAM policies to control this action's access to Amazon SWF resources as follows:

  • Use a Resource element with the domain name to limit the action to only specified domains.
  • Use an Action element to allow or deny permission to call this action.
  • Constrain the following parameters by using a Condition element with the appropriate keys.
    • tagFilter.tag: String constraint. The key is swf:tagFilter.tag.
    • typeFilter.name: String constraint. The key is swf:typeFilter.name.
    • typeFilter.version: String constraint. The key is swf:typeFilter.version.

If the caller does not have sufficient permissions to invoke the action, or the parameter values fall outside the specified constraints, the action fails. The associated event attribute's cause parameter will be set to OPERATION_NOT_PERMITTED. For details and example IAM policies, see Using IAM to Manage Access to Amazon SWF Workflows.

        Note: The combination of activity type name and version must be unique with in a domain.

Callback (callback):

  • function(err, data) { ... }

    Called when a response from the service is returned. If a callback is not supplied, you must call AWS.Request.send() on the returned request object to initiate the request.

    • (AWS.Response)

      the response object containing error, data properties, and the original request object.

    Parameters:

    • err (Error)

      the error object returned from the request. Set to null if the request is successful.

deprecateDomain(params = {}, callback) ⇒ AWS.Request

Deprecates the specified domain. After a domain has been deprecated it cannot be used to create new workflow executions or register new types. However, you can still use visibility actions on this domain. Deprecating a domain also deprecates all activity and workflow types registered in the domain. Executions that were started before the domain was deprecated will continue to run.

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

    • name — (String)

      The name of the domain to deprecate.

Callback (callback):

  • function(err, data) { ... }

    Called when a response from the service is returned. If a callback is not supplied, you must call AWS.Request.send() on the returned request object to initiate the request.

    Context (this):

    • (AWS.Response)

      the response object containing error, data properties, and the original request object.

    Parameters:

    • err (Error)

      the error object returned from the request. Set to null if the request is successful.

    • data (Object)

      the de-serialized data returned from the request. Set to null if a request error occurs.

Returns:

  • (AWS.Request)

    a handle to the operation request for subsequent event callback registration.

deprecateWorkflowType(params = {}, callback) ⇒ AWS.Request

Deprecates the specified workflow type. After a workflow type has been deprecated, you cannot create new executions of that type. Executions that were started before the type was deprecated will continue to run. A deprecated workflow type may still be used when calling visibility actions.

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

Access Control

You can use IAM policies to control this action's access to Amazon SWF resources as follows:

  • Use a Resource element with the domain name to limit the action to only specified domains.
  • Use an Action element to allow or deny permission to call this action.
  • Constrain the following parameters by using a Condition element with the appropriate keys.
    • workflowType.name: String constraint. The key is swf:workflowType.name.
    • workflowType.version: String constraint. The key is swf:workflowType.version.

If the caller does not have sufficient permissions to invoke the action, or the parameter values fall outside the specified constraints, the action fails. The associated event attribute's cause parameter will be set to OPERATION_NOT_PERMITTED. For details and example IAM policies, see Using IAM to Manage Access to Amazon SWF Workflows.

    a handle to the operation request for subsequent event callback registration.

getWorkflowExecutionHistory(params = {}, callback) ⇒ AWS.Request

Returns the history of the specified workflow execution. The results may be split into multiple pages. To retrieve subsequent pages, make the call again using the nextPageToken returned by the initial call.

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

Access Control

You can use IAM policies to control this action's access to Amazon SWF resources as follows:

  • Use a Resource element with the domain name to limit the action to only specified domains.
  • Use an Action element to allow or deny permission to call this action.
  • You cannot use an IAM policy to constrain this action's parameters.

If the caller does not have sufficient permissions to invoke the action, or the parameter values fall outside the specified constraints, the action fails. The associated event attribute's cause parameter will be set to OPERATION_NOT_PERMITTED. For details and example IAM policies, see Using IAM to Manage Access to Amazon SWF Workflows.

Service Reference:

Examples:

Calling the getWorkflowExecutionHistory operation

var params = {
  domain: 'STRING_VALUE', /* required */
  execution: { /* required */
    runId: 'STRING_VALUE', /* required */
    workflowId: 'STRING_VALUE' /* required */
  },
  maximumPageSize: 0,
  nextPageToken: 'STRING_VALUE',
  reverseOrder: true || false
};
swf.getWorkflowExecutionHistory(params, function(err, data) {
  if (err) console.log(err, err.stack); // an error occurred
  else     console.log(data);           // successful response
});

Parameters:

  • params (Object) (defaults to: {})
    • domain — (String)

      The name of the domain containing the workflow execution.

    • execution — (map)

      Specifies the workflow execution for which to return the history.

        A system-generated unique identifier for the workflow execution.

    • nextPageToken — (String)

      If a NextPageToken was returned by a previous call, there are more results available. To retrieve the next page of results, make the call again using the returned token in nextPageToken. Keep all other arguments unchanged.

      The configured maximumPageSize determines how many results can be returned in a single call.

    • maximumPageSize — (Integer)

      The maximum number of results that will be returned per call. nextPageToken can be used to obtain futher pages of results. The default is 1000, which is the maximum allowed page size. You can, however, specify a page size smaller than the maximum.

      This is an upper limit only; the actual number of results returned per call may be fewer than the specified maximum.

    • reverseOrder — (Boolean)

      When set to true, returns the events in reverse order. By default the results are returned in ascending order of the eventTimeStamp of the events.

Callback (callback):

  • function(err, data) { ... }

Access Control

You can use IAM policies to control this action's access to Amazon SWF resources as follows:

  • Use a Resource element with the domain name to limit the action to only specified domains. The element must be set to arn:aws:swf::AccountID:domain/*, where AccountID is the account ID, with no dashes.
  • Use an Action element to allow or deny permission to call this action.
  • You cannot use an IAM policy to constrain this action's parameters.

If the caller does not have sufficient permissions to invoke the action, or the parameter values fall outside the specified constraints, the action fails.

Returns a list of open workflow executions in the specified domain that meet the filtering criteria. The results may be split into multiple pages. To retrieve subsequent pages, make the call again using the nextPageToken returned by the initial call.

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

Access Control

You can use IAM policies to control this action's access to Amazon SWF resources as follows:

  • Use a Resource element with the domain name to limit the action to only specified domains.
  • Use an Action element to allow or deny permission to call this action.
  • Constrain the following parameters by using a Condition element with the appropriate keys.
    • tagFilter.tag: String constraint. The key is swf:tagFilter.tag.
    • typeFilter.name: String constraint. The key is swf:typeFilter.name.
    • typeFilter.version: String constraint. The key is swf:typeFilter.version.

If the caller does not have sufficient permissions to invoke the action, or the parameter values fall outside the specified constraints, the action fails. The associated event attribute's cause parameter will be set to OPERATION_NOT_PERMITTED. For details and example IAM policies, see Using IAM to Manage Access to Amazon SWF Workflows.

pollForActivityTask(params = {}, callback) ⇒ AWS.Request

Used by workers to get an ActivityTask from the specified activity taskList. This initiates a long poll, where the service holds the HTTP connection open and responds as soon as a task becomes available. 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 will return an empty result. An empty result, in this context, means that an ActivityTask is returned, but that the value of taskToken is an empty string. If a task is returned, the worker should use its type to identify and process it correctly.

Workers should set their client side socket timeout to at least 70 seconds (10 seconds higher than the maximum time service may hold the poll request).

Access Control

You can use IAM policies to control this action's access to Amazon SWF resources as follows:

  • Use a Resource element with the domain name to limit the action to only specified domains.
  • Use an Action element to allow or deny permission to call this action.
  • Constrain the taskList.name parameter by using a Condition element with the swf:taskList.name key to allow the action to access only certain task lists.

If the caller does not have sufficient permissions to invoke the action, or the parameter values fall outside the specified constraints, the action fails. The associated event attribute's cause parameter will be set to OPERATION_NOT_PERMITTED. For details and example IAM policies, see Using IAM to Manage Access to Amazon SWF Workflows.

Callback (callback):

  • function(err, data) { ... }

    Called when a response from the service is returned. If a callback is not supplied, you must call AWS.Request.send() on the returned request object to initiate the request.

    Context (this):

      the response object containing error, data properties, and the original request object.

    Parameters:

    • err (Error)

      the error object returned from the request. Set to null if the request is successful.

      • taskToken — (String)

        The opaque string used as a handle on the task. This token is used by workers to communicate progress and response information back to the system about the task.

      • activityId — (String)

        The unique ID of the task.

      • startedEventId — (Integer)

        The ID of the ActivityTaskStarted event recorded in the history.

pollForDecisionTask(params = {}, callback) ⇒ AWS.Request

Used by deciders to get a DecisionTask from the specified decision taskList. A decision task may be returned for any open workflow execution that is using the specified task list. The task includes a paginated view of the history of the workflow execution. The decider should use the workflow type and the history to determine how to properly handle the task.

This action initiates a long poll, where the service holds the HTTP connection open and responds as soon a task becomes available. If no decision task is available in the specified task list before the timeout of 60 seconds expires, an empty result is returned. An empty result, in this context, means that a DecisionTask is returned, but that the value of taskToken is an empty string.

Deciders should set their client-side socket timeout to at least 70 seconds (10 seconds higher than the timeout). Because the number of workflow history events for a single workflow execution might be very large, the result returned might be split up across a number of pages. To retrieve subsequent pages, make additional calls to PollForDecisionTask using the nextPageToken returned by the initial call. Note that you do not call GetWorkflowExecutionHistory with this nextPageToken. Instead, call PollForDecisionTask again.

Access Control

You can use IAM policies to control this action's access to Amazon SWF resources as follows:

  • Use a Resource element with the domain name to limit the action to only specified domains.
  • Use an Action element to allow or deny permission to call this action.
  • Constrain the taskList.name parameter by using a Condition element with the swf:taskList.name key to allow the action to access only certain task lists.

If the caller does not have sufficient permissions to invoke the action, or the parameter values fall outside the specified constraints, the action fails. The associated event attribute's cause parameter will be set to OPERATION_NOT_PERMITTED. For details and example IAM policies, see Using IAM to Manage Access to Amazon SWF Workflows.

Returns:

  • (AWS.Request)

    a handle to the operation request for subsequent event callback registration.

recordActivityTaskHeartbeat(params = {}, callback) ⇒ AWS.Request

Used by activity workers to report to the service that the ActivityTask represented by the specified taskToken is still making progress. The worker can also (optionally) specify details of the progress, for example percent complete, using the details parameter. This action can also be used by the worker as a mechanism to check if cancellation is being requested for the activity task. If a cancellation is being attempted for the specified task, then the boolean cancelRequested flag returned by the service is set to true.

This action resets the taskHeartbeatTimeout clock. The taskHeartbeatTimeout is specified in RegisterActivityType.

This action does not in itself create an event in the workflow execution history. However, if the task times out, the workflow execution history will contain a ActivityTaskTimedOut event that contains the information from the last heartbeat generated by the activity worker.

Note: The taskStartToCloseTimeout of an activity type is the maximum duration of an activity task, regardless of the number of RecordActivityTaskHeartbeat requests received. The taskStartToCloseTimeout is also specified in RegisterActivityType.
Note: This operation is only useful for long-lived activities to report liveliness of the task and to determine if a cancellation is being attempted.
If the cancelRequested flag returns true, a cancellation is being attempted. If the worker can cancel the activity, it should respond with RespondActivityTaskCanceled. Otherwise, it should ignore the cancellation request.

Access Control

You can use IAM policies to control this action's access to Amazon SWF resources as follows:

  • Use a Resource element with the domain name to limit the action to only specified domains.
  • Use an Action element to allow or deny permission to call this action.
  • You cannot use an IAM policy to constrain this action's parameters.

If the caller does not have sufficient permissions to invoke the action, or the parameter values fall outside the specified constraints, the action fails. The associated event attribute's cause parameter will be set to OPERATION_NOT_PERMITTED. For details and example IAM policies, see Using IAM to Manage Access to Amazon SWF Workflows.

Service Reference:

Examples:

Calling the recordActivityTaskHeartbeat operation

var params = {
  taskToken: 'STRING_VALUE', /* required */
  details: 'STRING_VALUE'
};
swf.recordActivityTaskHeartbeat(params, function(err, data) {
  if (err) console.log(err, err.stack); // an error occurred
  else     console.log(data);           // successful response
});

Parameters:

  • params (Object) (defaults to: {})
    • taskToken — (String)

      The taskToken of the ActivityTask.

      taskToken is generated by the service and should be treated as an opaque value. If the task is passed to another process, its taskToken must also be passed. This enables it to provide its progress and respond with results.
    • details — (String)

      If specified, contains details about the progress of the task.

Callback (callback):

  • function(err, data) { ... }

    Called when a response from the service is returned. If a callback is not supplied, you must call AWS.Request.send() on the returned request object to initiate the request.

    Context (this):

    • (AWS.Response)

      the response object containing error, data properties, and the original request object.

    Parameters:

    • err (Error)

      the error object returned from the request. Set to null if the request is successful.

    • data (Object)

      the de-serialized data returned from the request. Set to null if a request error occurs. The data object has the following properties:

      • cancelRequested — (Boolean)

        Set to true if cancellation of the task is requested.

Returns:

  • (AWS.Request)

    a handle to the operation request for subsequent event callback registration.

registerActivityType(params = {}, callback) ⇒ AWS.Request

Registers a new activity type along with its configuration settings in the specified domain.

A TypeAlreadyExists fault is returned if the type already exists in the domain. You cannot change any configuration settings of the type after its registration, and it must be registered as a new version.

Access Control

You can use IAM policies to control this action's access to Amazon SWF resources as follows:

  • Use a Resource element with the domain name to limit the action to only specified domains.
  • Use an Action element to allow or deny permission to call this action.
  • Constrain the following parameters by using a Condition element with the appropriate keys.
    • defaultTaskList.name: String constraint. The key is swf:defaultTaskList.name.
    • name: String constraint. The key is swf:name.
    • version: String constraint. The key is swf:version.

If the caller does not have sufficient permissions to invoke the action, or the parameter values fall outside the specified constraints, the action fails. The associated event attribute's cause parameter will be set to OPERATION_NOT_PERMITTED. For details and example IAM policies, see Using IAM to Manage Access to Amazon SWF Workflows.

Examples:

Calling the registerActivityType operation

var params = {
  domain: 'STRING_VALUE', /* required */
  name: 'STRING_VALUE', /* required */
  version: 'STRING_VALUE', /* required */
  defaultTaskHeartbeatTimeout: 'STRING_VALUE',
  defaultTaskList: {
    name: 'STRING_VALUE' /* required */
  },
  defaultTaskPriority: 'STRING_VALUE',
  defaultTaskScheduleToCloseTimeout: 'STRING_VALUE',
  defaultTaskScheduleToStartTimeout: 'STRING_VALUE',
  defaultTaskStartToCloseTimeout: 'STRING_VALUE',
  description: 'STRING_VALUE'
};
swf.registerActivityType(params, function(err, data) {
  if (err) console.log(err, err.stack); // an error occurred
  else     console.log(data);           // successful response
});

Parameters:

  • params (Object) (defaults to: {})
    • domain — (String)

      The name of the domain in which this activity is to be registered.

    • name — (String)

      The name of the activity type within the domain.

      The specified string must not start or end with whitespace. It must not contain a : (colon), / (slash), | (vertical bar), or any control characters (\u0000-\u001f | \u007f - \u009f). Also, it must not contain the literal string quotarnquot.

    • version — (String)

      The version of the activity type.

      Note: The activity type consists of the name and version, the combination of which must be unique within the domain.

      The specified string must not start or end with whitespace. It must not contain a : (colon), / (slash), | (vertical bar), or any control characters (\u0000-\u001f | \u007f - \u009f). Also, it must not contain the literal string quotarnquot.

    • description — (String)

      A textual description of the activity type.

    • defaultTaskStartToCloseTimeout — (String)

      If set, specifies the default maximum duration that a worker can take to process tasks of this activity type. This default can be overridden when scheduling an activity task using the ScheduleActivityTask decision.

      The duration is specified in seconds; an integer greater than or equal to 0. The value "NONE" can be used to specify unlimited duration.

    • defaultTaskHeartbeatTimeout — (String)

      If set, specifies the default maximum time before which a worker processing a task of this type must report progress by calling RecordActivityTaskHeartbeat. If the timeout is exceeded, the activity task is automatically timed out. This default can be overridden when scheduling an activity task using the ScheduleActivityTask decision. If the activity worker subsequently attempts to record a heartbeat or returns a result, the activity worker receives an UnknownResource fault. In this case, Amazon SWF no longer considers the activity task to be valid; the activity worker should clean up the activity task.

      The duration is specified in seconds; an integer greater than or equal to 0. The value "NONE" can be used to specify unlimited duration.

    • defaultTaskList — (map)

      If set, specifies the default task list to use for scheduling tasks of this activity type. This default task list is used if a task list is not provided when a task is scheduled through the ScheduleActivityTask decision.

      • namerequired — (String)

        The name of the task list.

    • defaultTaskPriority — (String)

      The default task priority to assign to the activity type. If not assigned, then "0" will be used. Valid values are integers that range from Java's Integer.MIN_VALUE (-2147483648) to Integer.MAX_VALUE (2147483647). Higher numbers indicate higher priority.

      For more information about setting task priority, see Setting Task Priority in the Amazon Simple Workflow Developer Guide.

    • defaultTaskScheduleToStartTimeout — (String)

      If set, specifies the default maximum duration that a task of this activity type can wait before being assigned to a worker. This default can be overridden when scheduling an activity task using the ScheduleActivityTask decision.

      The duration is specified in seconds; an integer greater than or equal to 0. The value "NONE" can be used to specify unlimited duration.

    • defaultTaskScheduleToCloseTimeout — (String)

      If set, specifies the default maximum duration for a task of this activity type. This default can be overridden when scheduling an activity task using the ScheduleActivityTask decision.

      The duration is specified in seconds; an integer greater than or equal to 0. The value "NONE" can be used to specify unlimited duration.

    • (AWS.Response)

      the response object containing error, data properties, and the original request object.

    Parameters:

    • err (Error)

      the error object returned from the request. Set to null if the request is successful.

    • data (Object)

      the de-serialized data returned from the request. Set to null if a request error occurs.

Returns:

  • (AWS.Request)

    a handle to the operation request for subsequent event callback registration.

registerDomain(params = {}, callback) ⇒ AWS.Request

Registers a new domain.

Access Control

You can use IAM policies to control this action's access to Amazon SWF resources as follows:

  • You cannot use an IAM policy to control domain access for this action. The name of the domain being registered is available as the resource of this action.
  • Use an Action element to allow or deny permission to call this action.
  • You cannot use an IAM policy to constrain this action's parameters.

If the caller does not have sufficient permissions to invoke the action, or the parameter values fall outside the specified constraints, the action fails. The associated event attribute's cause parameter will be set to OPERATION_NOT_PERMITTED. For details and example IAM policies, see Using IAM to Manage Access to Amazon SWF Workflows.

  description: 'STRING_VALUE'
};
swf.registerDomain(params, function(err, data) {
  if (err) console.log(err, err.stack); // an error occurred
  else     console.log(data);           // successful response
});

Parameters:

  • params (Object) (defaults to: {})
    • name — (String)

      Name of the domain to register. The name must be unique in the region that the domain is registered in.

      The specified string must not start or end with whitespace. It must not contain a : (colon), / (slash), | (vertical bar), or any control characters (\u0000-\u001f | \u007f - \u009f). Also, it must not contain the literal string quotarnquot.

      If you pass the value NONE or 0 (zero), then the workflow execution history will not be retained. As soon as the workflow execution completes, the execution record and its history are deleted.

      The maximum workflow execution retention period is 90 days. For more information about Amazon SWF service limits, see: Amazon SWF Service Limits in the Amazon SWF Developer Guide.

Callback (callback):

  • function(err, data) { ... }

    Called when a response from the service is returned. If a callback is not supplied, you must call AWS.Request.send() on the returned request object to initiate the request.

    Context (this):

    • (AWS.Response)

      the response object containing error, data properties, and the original request object.

    Parameters:

  if (err) console.log(err, err.stack); // an error occurred
  else     console.log(data);           // successful response
});

Parameters:

  • params (Object) (defaults to: {})
    • domain — (String)

      The name of the domain in which to register the workflow type.

    • name — (String)

      The name of the workflow type.

      The specified string must not start or end with whitespace. It must not contain a : (colon), / (slash), | (vertical bar), or any control characters (\u0000-\u001f | \u007f - \u009f). Also, it must not contain the literal string quotarnquot.

    • version — (String)

      The version of the workflow type.

      Note: The workflow type consists of the name and version, the combination of which must be unique within the domain. To get a list of all currently registered workflow types, use the ListWorkflowTypes action.

      The specified string must not start or end with whitespace. It must not contain a : (colon), / (slash), | (vertical bar), or any control characters (\u0000-\u001f | \u007f - \u009f). Also, it must not contain the literal string quotarnquot.

    • description — (String)

      Textual description of the workflow type.

    • defaultTaskStartToCloseTimeout — (String)

      If set, specifies the default maximum duration of decision tasks for this workflow type. This default can be overridden when starting a workflow execution using the StartWorkflowExecution action or the StartChildWorkflowExecution decision.

      The duration is specified in seconds; an integer greater than or equal to 0. The value "NONE" can be used to specify unlimited duration.

    • defaultExecutionStartToCloseTimeout — (String)

      If set, specifies the default maximum duration for executions of this workflow type. You can override this default when starting an execution through the StartWorkflowExecution action or StartChildWorkflowExecution decision.

      The duration is specified in seconds; an integer greater than or equal to 0. Unlike some of the other timeout parameters in Amazon SWF, you cannot specify a value of "NONE" for defaultExecutionStartToCloseTimeout; there is a one-year max limit on the time that a workflow execution can run. Exceeding this limit will always cause the workflow execution to time out.

    • defaultTaskList — (map)

      If set, specifies the default task list to use for scheduling decision tasks for executions of this workflow type. This default is used only if a task list is not provided when starting the execution through the StartWorkflowExecution action or StartChildWorkflowExecution decision.

      • namerequired — (String)

        The name of the task list.

    • defaultTaskPriority — (String)

      The default task priority to assign to the workflow type. If not assigned, then "0" will be used. Valid values are integers that range from Java's Integer.MIN_VALUE (-2147483648) to Integer.MAX_VALUE (2147483647). Higher numbers indicate higher priority.

      For more information about setting task priority, see Setting Task Priority in the Amazon Simple Workflow Developer Guide.

    • defaultChildPolicy — (String)

      If set, specifies the default policy to use for the child workflow executions when a workflow execution of this type is terminated, by calling the TerminateWorkflowExecution action explicitly or due to an expired timeout. This default can be overridden when starting a workflow execution using the StartWorkflowExecution action or the StartChildWorkflowExecution decision.

      The supported child policies are:

      • TERMINATE: the child executions will be terminated.
      • REQUEST_CANCEL: a request to cancel will be attempted for each child execution by recording a WorkflowExecutionCancelRequested event in its history. It is up to the decider to take appropriate actions when it receives an execution history with this event.
      • ABANDON: no action will be taken. The child executions will continue to run.
      Possible values include:
      • "TERMINATE"
      • "REQUEST_CANCEL"
      • "ABANDON"
    • defaultLambdaRole — (String)

      The ARN of the default IAM role to use when a workflow execution of this type invokes AWS Lambda functions.

      This default can be overridden when starting a workflow execution using the StartWorkflowExecution action or the StartChildWorkflowExecution and ContinueAsNewWorkflowExecution decision.

Callback (callback):

  • function(err, data) { ... }

    Called when a response from the service is returned. If a callback is not supplied, you must call AWS.Request.send() on the returned request object to initiate the request.

    Context (this):

    • (AWS.Response)

      the response object containing error, data properties, and the original request object.

    Parameters:

    • err (Error)

      the error object returned from the request. Set to null if the request is successful.

    • data (Object)

      the de-serialized data returned from the request. Set to null if a request error occurs.

Returns:

  • (AWS.Request)

    a handle to the operation request for subsequent event callback registration.

requestCancelWorkflowExecution(params = {}, callback) ⇒ AWS.Request

Records a WorkflowExecutionCancelRequested event in the currently running workflow execution identified by the given domain, workflowId, and runId. This logically requests the cancellation of the workflow execution as a whole. It is up to the decider to take appropriate actions when it receives an execution history with this event.

Note: If the runId is not specified, the WorkflowExecutionCancelRequested event is recorded in the history of the current open workflow execution with the specified workflowId in the domain.
Note: Because this action allows the workflow to properly clean up and gracefully close, it should be used instead of TerminateWorkflowExecution when possible.

Access Control

You can use IAM policies to control this action's access to Amazon SWF resources as follows:

  • Use a Resource element with the domain name to limit the action to only specified domains.
  • Use an Action element to allow or deny permission to call this action.
  • You cannot use an IAM policy to constrain this action's parameters.

If the caller does not have sufficient permissions to invoke the action, or the parameter values fall outside the specified constraints, the action fails. The associated event attribute's cause parameter will be set to OPERATION_NOT_PERMITTED. For details and example IAM policies, see Using IAM to Manage Access to Amazon SWF Workflows.

Examples:

Calling the requestCancelWorkflowExecution operation

var params = {
  domain: 'STRING_VALUE', /* required */
  workflowId: 'STRING_VALUE', /* required */
  runId: 'STRING_VALUE'
};
swf.requestCancelWorkflowExecution(params, function(err, data) {
  if (err) console.log(err, err.stack); // an error occurred
  else     console.log(data);           // successful response
});

Parameters:

  • params (Object) (defaults to: {})
    • domain — (String)

      The name of the domain containing the workflow execution to cancel.

    • workflowId — (String)

      The workflowId of the workflow execution to cancel.

    • runId — (String)

      The runId of the workflow execution to cancel.

Callback (callback):

  • function(err, data) { ... }

    Called when a response from the service is returned. If a callback is not supplied, you must call AWS.Request.send() on the returned request object to initiate the request.

    Context (this):

    • (AWS.Response)

      the response object containing error, data properties, and the original request object.

    Parameters:

    • err (Error)

      the error object returned from the request. Set to null if the request is successful.

    • data (Object)

      the de-serialized data returned from the request. Set to null if a request error occurs.

Returns:

  • (AWS.Request)

    a handle to the operation request for subsequent event callback registration.

respondActivityTaskCanceled(params = {}, callback) ⇒ AWS.Request

Used by workers to tell the service that the ActivityTask identified by the taskToken was successfully canceled. Additional details can be optionally provided using the details argument.

These details (if provided) appear in the ActivityTaskCanceled event added to the workflow history.

Only use this operation if the canceled flag of a RecordActivityTaskHeartbeat request returns true and if the activity can be safely undone or abandoned.

A task is considered open from the time that it is scheduled until it is closed. Therefore a task is reported as open while a worker is processing it. A task is closed after it has been specified in a call to RespondActivityTaskCompleted, RespondActivityTaskCanceled, RespondActivityTaskFailed, or the task has timed out.

Access Control

You can use IAM policies to control this action's access to Amazon SWF resources as follows:

  • Use a Resource element with the domain name to limit the action to only specified domains.
  • Use an Action element to allow or deny permission to call this action.
  • You cannot use an IAM policy to constrain this action's parameters.

If the caller does not have sufficient permissions to invoke the action, or the parameter values fall outside the specified constraints, the action fails. The associated event attribute's cause parameter will be set to OPERATION_NOT_PERMITTED. For details and example IAM policies, see Using IAM to Manage Access to Amazon SWF Workflows.

Service Reference:

Examples:

Calling the respondActivityTaskCanceled operation

var params = {
  taskToken: 'STRING_VALUE', /* required */
  details: 'STRING_VALUE'
};
swf.respondActivityTaskCanceled(params, function(err, data) {
  if (err) console.log(err, err.stack); // an error occurred
  else     console.log(data);           // successful response
});

Parameters:

  • params (Object) (defaults to: {})
    • taskToken — (String)

      The taskToken of the ActivityTask.

      taskToken is generated by the service and should be treated as an opaque value. If the task is passed to another process, its taskToken must also be passed. This enables it to provide its progress and respond with results.
    • details — (String)

      Optional. Information about the cancellation.

Callback (callback):

  • function(err, data) { ... }

    Called when a response from the service is returned. If a callback is not supplied, you must call AWS.Request.send() on the returned request object to initiate the request.

    Context (this):

    • (AWS.Response)

      the response object containing error, data properties, and the original request object.

    Parameters:

    • err (Error)

      the error object returned from the request. Set to null if the request is successful.

    • data (Object)

      the de-serialized data returned from the request. Set to null if a request error occurs.

Returns:

  • (AWS.Request)

    a handle to the operation request for subsequent event callback registration.

respondActivityTaskCompleted(params = {}, callback) ⇒ AWS.Request

Used by workers to tell the service that the ActivityTask identified by the taskToken completed successfully with a result (if provided). The result appears in the ActivityTaskCompleted event in the workflow history.

If the requested task does not complete successfully, use RespondActivityTaskFailed instead. If the worker finds that the task is canceled through the canceled flag returned by RecordActivityTaskHeartbeat, it should cancel the task, clean up and then call RespondActivityTaskCanceled.

A task is considered open from the time that it is scheduled until it is closed. Therefore a task is reported as open while a worker is processing it. A task is closed after it has been specified in a call to RespondActivityTaskCompleted, RespondActivityTaskCanceled, RespondActivityTaskFailed, or the task has timed out.

Access Control

You can use IAM policies to control this action's access to Amazon SWF resources as follows:

  • Use a Resource element with the domain name to limit the action to only specified domains.
  • Use an Action element to allow or deny permission to call this action.
  • You cannot use an IAM policy to constrain this action's parameters.

If the caller does not have sufficient permissions to invoke the action, or the parameter values fall outside the specified constraints, the action fails. The associated event attribute's cause parameter will be set to OPERATION_NOT_PERMITTED. For details and example IAM policies, see Using IAM to Manage Access to Amazon SWF Workflows.

Service Reference:

Examples:

Calling the respondActivityTaskCompleted operation

var params = {

  result: 'STRING_VALUE'
};
swf.respondActivityTaskCompleted(params, function(err, data) {
  if (err) console.log(err, err.stack); // an error occurred
  else     console.log(data);           // successful response
});

Parameters:

  • params (Object) (defaults to: {})
    • taskToken — (String)

      The taskToken of the ActivityTask.

      taskToken is generated by the service and should be treated as an opaque value. If the task is passed to another process, its taskToken must also be passed. This enables it to provide its progress and respond with results.
    • result — (String)

      The result of the activity task. It is a free form string that is implementation specific.

Callback (callback):

  • function(err, data) { ... }

    Called when a response from the service is returned. If a callback is not supplied, you must call AWS.Request.send() on the returned request object to initiate the request.

    Context (this):

    • (AWS.Response)

      the response object containing error, data properties, and the original request object.

    Parameters:

    • err (Error)

      the error object returned from the request. Set to null if the request is successful.

    • data (Object)

      the de-serialized data returned from the request. Set to null if a request error occurs.

Returns:

  • (AWS.Request)

    a handle to the operation request for subsequent event callback registration.

respondActivityTaskFailed(params = {}, callback) ⇒ AWS.Request

Used by workers to tell the service that the ActivityTask identified by the taskToken has failed with reason (if specified). The reason and details appear in the ActivityTaskFailed event added to the workflow history.

A task is considered open from the time that it is scheduled until it is closed. Therefore a task is reported as open while a worker is processing it. A task is closed after it has been specified in a call to RespondActivityTaskCompleted, RespondActivityTaskCanceled, RespondActivityTaskFailed, or the task has timed out.

Access Control

You can use IAM policies to control this action's access to Amazon SWF resources as follows:

  • Use a Resource element with the domain name to limit the action to only specified domains.
  • Use an Action element to allow or deny permission to call this action.
  • You cannot use an IAM policy to constrain this action's parameters.

If the caller does not have sufficient permissions to invoke the action, or the parameter values fall outside the specified constraints, the action fails. The associated event attribute's cause parameter will be set to OPERATION_NOT_PERMITTED. For details and example IAM policies, see Using IAM to Manage Access to Amazon SWF Workflows.

Service Reference:

Examples:

Calling the respondActivityTaskFailed operation

var params = {
  taskToken: 'STRING_VALUE', /* required */
  details: 'STRING_VALUE',
  reason: 'STRING_VALUE'
};
swf.respondActivityTaskFailed(params, function(err, data) {
  if (err) console.log(err, err.stack); // an error occurred
  else     console.log(data);           // successful response
});

Parameters:

  • params (Object) (defaults to: {})
    • taskToken — (String)

      The taskToken of the ActivityTask.

      taskToken is generated by the service and should be treated as an opaque value. If the task is passed to another process, its taskToken must also be passed. This enables it to provide its progress and respond with results.
    • reason — (String)

      Description of the error that may assist in diagnostics.

    • details — (String)

      Optional. Detailed information about the failure.

Callback (callback):

  • function(err, data) { ... }

    Called when a response from the service is returned. If a callback is not supplied, you must call AWS.Request.send() on the returned request object to initiate the request.

    Context (this):

    • (AWS.Response)

      the response object containing error, data properties, and the original request object.

    Parameters:

    • err (Error)

      the error object returned from the request. Set to null if the request is successful.

    • data (Object)

      the de-serialized data returned from the request. Set to null if a request error occurs.

Returns:

  • (AWS.Request)

    a handle to the operation request for subsequent event callback registration.

respondDecisionTaskCompleted(params = {}, callback) ⇒ AWS.Request

Used by deciders to tell the service that the DecisionTask identified by the taskToken has successfully completed. The decisions argument specifies the list of decisions made while processing the task.

A DecisionTaskCompleted event is added to the workflow history. The executionContext specified is attached to the event in the workflow execution history.

Access Control

If an IAM policy grants permission to use RespondDecisionTaskCompleted, it can express permissions for the list of decisions in the decisions parameter. Each of the decisions has one or more parameters, much like a regular API call. To allow for policies to be as readable as possible, you can express permissions on decisions as if they were actual API calls, including applying conditions to some parameters. For more information, see Using IAM to Manage Access to Amazon SWF Workflows.

Records a WorkflowExecutionSignaled event in the workflow execution history and creates a decision task for the workflow execution identified by the given domain, workflowId and runId. The event is recorded with the specified user defined signalName and input (if provided).

Note: If a runId is not specified, then the WorkflowExecutionSignaled event is recorded in the history of the current open workflow with the matching workflowId in the domain.
Note: If the specified workflow execution is not open, this method fails with UnknownResource.

Access Control

You can use IAM policies to control this action's access to Amazon SWF resources as follows:

  • Use a Resource element with the domain name to limit the action to only specified domains.
  • Use an Action element to allow or deny permission to call this action.
  • You cannot use an IAM policy to constrain this action's parameters.

If the caller does not have sufficient permissions to invoke the action, or the parameter values fall outside the specified constraints, the action fails. The associated event attribute's cause parameter will be set to OPERATION_NOT_PERMITTED. For details and example IAM policies, see Using IAM to Manage Access to Amazon SWF Workflows.

});

Parameters:

  • params (Object) (defaults to: {})
    • domain — (String)

      The name of the domain in which the workflow execution is created.

    • workflowId — (String)

      The user defined identifier associated with the workflow execution. You can use this to associate a custom identifier with the workflow execution. You may specify the same identifier if a workflow execution is logically a restart of a previous execution. You cannot have two open workflow executions with the same workflowId at the same time.

      The specified string must not start or end with whitespace. It must not contain a : (colon), / (slash), | (vertical bar), or any control characters (\u0000-\u001f | \u007f - \u009f). Also, it must not contain the literal string quotarnquot.

    • workflowType — (map)

      The type of the workflow to start.

      • namerequired — (String)

        Required. The name of the workflow type.

        Note: The combination of workflow type name and version must be unique with in a domain.
      • versionrequired — (String)

        Required. The version of the workflow type.

        Note: The combination of workflow type name and version must be unique with in a domain.
    • taskList — (map)

      The task list to use for the decision tasks generated for this workflow execution. This overrides the defaultTaskList specified when registering the workflow type.

      Note: A task list for this workflow execution must be specified either as a default for the workflow type or through this parameter. If neither this parameter is set nor a default task list was specified at registration time then a fault will be returned.

      The specified string must not start or end with whitespace. It must not contain a : (colon), / (slash), | (vertical bar), or any control characters (\u0000-\u001f | \u007f - \u009f). Also, it must not contain the literal string quotarnquot.

      • namerequired — (String)

        The name of the task list.

    • taskPriority — (String)

      The task priority to use for this workflow execution. This will override any default priority that was assigned when the workflow type was registered. If not set, then the default task priority for the workflow type will be used. Valid values are integers that range from Java's Integer.MIN_VALUE (-2147483648) to Integer.MAX_VALUE (2147483647). Higher numbers indicate higher priority.

      For more information about setting task priority, see Setting Task Priority in the Amazon Simple Workflow Developer Guide.

    • input — (String)

      The input for the workflow execution. This is a free form string which should be meaningful to the workflow you are starting. This input is made available to the new workflow execution in the WorkflowExecutionStarted history event.

    • executionStartToCloseTimeout — (String)

      The total duration for this workflow execution. This overrides the defaultExecutionStartToCloseTimeout specified when registering the workflow type.

      The duration is specified in seconds; an integer greater than or equal to 0. Exceeding this limit will cause the workflow execution to time out. Unlike some of the other timeout parameters in Amazon SWF, you cannot specify a value of "NONE" for this timeout; there is a one-year max limit on the time that a workflow execution can run.

      Note: An execution start-to-close timeout must be specified either through this parameter or as a default when the workflow type is registered. If neither this parameter nor a default execution start-to-close timeout is specified, a fault is returned.
    • tagList — (Array<String>)

      The list of tags to associate with the workflow execution. You can specify a maximum of 5 tags. You can list workflow executions with a specific tag by calling ListOpenWorkflowExecutions or ListClosedWorkflowExecutions and specifying a TagFilter.

    • taskStartToCloseTimeout — (String)

      Specifies the maximum duration of decision tasks for this workflow execution. This parameter overrides the defaultTaskStartToCloseTimout specified when registering the workflow type using RegisterWorkflowType.

      The duration is specified in seconds; an integer greater than or equal to 0. The value "NONE" can be used to specify unlimited duration.

      Note: A task start-to-close timeout for this workflow execution must be specified either as a default for the workflow type or through this parameter. If neither this parameter is set nor a default task start-to-close timeout was specified at registration time then a fault will be returned.
    • childPolicy — (String)

      If set, specifies the policy to use for the child workflow executions of this workflow execution if it is terminated, by calling the TerminateWorkflowExecution action explicitly or due to an expired timeout. This policy overrides the default child policy specified when registering the workflow type using RegisterWorkflowType.

      The supported child policies are:

      • TERMINATE: the child executions will be terminated.
      • REQUEST_CANCEL: a request to cancel will be attempted for each child execution by recording a WorkflowExecutionCancelRequested event in its history. It is up to the decider to take appropriate actions when it receives an execution history with this event.
      • ABANDON: no action will be taken. The child executions will continue to run.
      Note: A child policy for this workflow execution must be specified either as a default for the workflow type or through this parameter. If neither this parameter is set nor a default child policy was specified at registration time then a fault will be returned.
      Possible values include:
      • "TERMINATE"
      • "REQUEST_CANCEL"
      • "ABANDON"
    • lambdaRole — (String)

      The ARN of an IAM role that authorizes Amazon SWF to invoke AWS Lambda functions.

      Note: In order for this workflow execution to invoke AWS Lambda functions, an appropriate IAM role must be specified either as a default for the workflow type or through this field.

Callback (callback):

  • function(err, data) { ... }

    Called when a response from the service is returned. If a callback is not supplied, you must call AWS.Request.send() on the returned request object to initiate the request.

    Context (this):

    • (AWS.Response)

      the response object containing error, data properties, and the original request object.

    Parameters:

    • err (Error)

      the error object returned from the request. Set to null if the request is successful.

    • data (Object)

      the de-serialized data returned from the request. Set to null if a request error occurs. The data object has the following properties:

      • runId — (String)

        The runId of a workflow execution. This ID is generated by the service and can be used to uniquely identify the workflow execution within a domain.

Returns:

  • (AWS.Request)

    a handle to the operation request for subsequent event callback registration.

terminateWorkflowExecution(params = {}, callback) ⇒ AWS.Request

Records a WorkflowExecutionTerminated event and forces closure of the workflow execution identified by the given domain, runId, and workflowId. The child policy, registered with the workflow type or specified when starting this execution, is applied to any open child workflow executions of this workflow execution.

If the identified workflow execution was in progress, it is terminated immediately.

Note: If a runId is not specified, then the WorkflowExecutionTerminated event is recorded in the history of the current open workflow with the matching workflowId in the domain.
Note: You should consider using RequestCancelWorkflowExecution action instead because it allows the workflow to gracefully close while TerminateWorkflowExecution does not.

Access Control

You can use IAM policies to control this action's access to Amazon SWF resources as follows:

  • Use a Resource element with the domain name to limit the action to only specified domains.
  • Use an Action element to allow or deny permission to call this action.
