ContinueAsNewWorkflowExecutionDecisionAttributes

Provides the details of the ContinueAsNewWorkflowExecution decision.

Access Control

You can use IAM policies to control this decision'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.

    • tag – A tag used to identify the workflow execution

    • taskList – String constraint. The key is swf:taskList.name.

    • workflowType.version – String constraint. The key is swf:workflowType.version.

If the caller doesn't 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 is set to OPERATION_NOT_PERMITTED. For details and example IAM policies, see Using IAM to Manage Access to Amazon SWF Workflows in the Amazon SWF Developer Guide.

Contents

childPolicy

If set, specifies the policy to use for the child workflow executions of the new 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 are terminated.

  • REQUEST_CANCEL – A request to cancel is 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 is taken. The child executions 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 is returned.

Type: String

Valid Values: TERMINATE | REQUEST_CANCEL | ABANDON

Required: No

executionStartToCloseTimeout

If set, specifies 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. You can use NONE to specify unlimited duration.

Note

An execution start-to-close timeout for this workflow execution must be specified either as a default for the workflow type or through this field. If neither this field is set nor a default execution start-to-close timeout was specified at registration time then a fault is returned.

Type: String

Length Constraints: Maximum length of 8.

Required: No

input

The input provided to the new workflow execution.

Type: String

Length Constraints: Maximum length of 32768.

Required: No

lambdaRole

The IAM role to attach to the new (continued) execution.

Type: String

Length Constraints: Minimum length of 1. Maximum length of 1600.

Required: No

tagList

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

Type: Array of strings

Array Members: Maximum number of 5 items.

Length Constraints: Minimum length of 0. Maximum length of 256.

Required: No

taskList

The task list to use for the decisions of the new (continued) workflow execution.

Type: TaskList object

Required: No

taskPriority

The task priority that, if set, specifies the priority for the decision tasks for this workflow execution. This overrides the defaultTaskPriority specified when registering the workflow type. 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 SWF Developer Guide.

Type: String

Required: No

taskStartToCloseTimeout

Specifies the maximum duration of decision tasks for the new 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. You can use NONE to specify unlimited duration.

Note

A task start-to-close timeout for the new 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 is returned.

Type: String

Length Constraints: Maximum length of 8.

Required: No

workflowTypeVersion

The version of the workflow to start.

Type: String

Length Constraints: Minimum length of 1. Maximum length of 64.

Required: No
