Registering an Amazon SWF Domain
Until at least one domain is registered, domain registration is the only functionality available from the console.
To register an Amazon SWF domain using the console
If no domains have been registered, in the center of the main pane, click Register a New Domain.
If at least one domain is registered, in the dashboard view, click the Manage Domains button, and then in the Manage Domains dialog box, click Register New.
In the Register Domain dialog box, enter a Name, Retention Period, and Description. These values correspond to the similarly-named parameters in the RegisterDomain action.
After the domain is registered, the console displays the Manage Domains dialog box.
