list-workflow-types

Description

Returns information about workflow types in the specified domain. The results may be split into multiple pages that can be retrieved by making the call repeatedly.

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 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 .

list-workflow-types is a paginated operation. Multiple API calls may be issued in order to retrieve the entire data set of results. You can disable pagination by providing the --no-paginate argument. When using --output text and the --query argument on a paginated response, the --query argument must extract data from the results of the following query expressions: typeInfos

Synopsis

  list-workflow-types
--domain <value>
[--name <value>]
--registration-status <value>
[--reverse-order | --no-reverse-order]
[--cli-input-json <value>]
[--starting-token <value>]
[--page-size <value>]
[--max-items <value>]
[--generate-cli-skeleton <value>]

Options

--domain (string)

The name of the domain in which the workflow types have been registered.

--name (string)

If specified, lists the workflow type with this name.

--registration-status (string)

Specifies the registration status of the workflow types to list.

Possible values:

  • REGISTERED
  • DEPRECATED

--reverse-order | --no-reverse-order (boolean)

When set to true , returns the results in reverse order. By default the results are returned in ascending alphabetical order of the name of the workflow types.

--cli-input-json (string) Performs service operation based on the JSON string provided. The JSON string follows the format provided by --generate-cli-skeleton. If other arguments are provided on the command line, the CLI values will override the JSON-provided values.

--starting-token (string)

A token to specify where to start paginating. This is the NextToken from a previously truncated response.

For usage examples, see Pagination in the AWS Command Line Interface User Guide .

--page-size (integer)

The size of each page to get in the AWS service call. This does not affect the number of items returned in the command's output. Setting a smaller page size results in more calls to the AWS service, retrieving fewer items in each call. This can help prevent the AWS service calls from timing out.

For usage examples, see Pagination in the AWS Command Line Interface User Guide .

--max-items (integer)

The total number of items to return in the command's output. If the total number of items available is more than the value specified, a NextToken is provided in the command's output. To resume pagination, provide the NextToken value in the starting-token argument of a subsequent command. Do not use the NextToken response element directly outside of the AWS CLI.

For usage examples, see Pagination in the AWS Command Line Interface User Guide .

--generate-cli-skeleton (string) Prints a JSON skeleton to standard output without sending an API request. If provided with no value or the value input, prints a sample input JSON that can be used as an argument for --cli-input-json. If provided with the value output, it validates the command inputs and returns a sample output JSON for that command.

Examples

Listing Workflow Types

To get a list of the workflow types for a domain, use swf list-workflow-types. The --domain and --registration-status arguments are required. Here's a simple example:

aws swf list-workflow-types --domain DataFrobtzz --registration-status REGISTERED

Results:

{
    "typeInfos": [
        {
            "status": "REGISTERED",
            "creationDate": 1371454149.598,
            "description": "DataFrobtzz subscribe workflow",
            "workflowType": {
                "version": "v3",
                "name": "subscribe"
            }
        }
    ]
}

As with list-activity-types, you can use the --name argument to select only workflow types with a particular name, and use the --maximum-page-size argument in coordination with --next-page-token to page results. To reverse the order in which results are returned, use --reverse-order.

Output

typeInfos -> (list)

The list of workflow type information.

(structure)

Contains information about a workflow type.

workflowType -> (structure)

The workflow type this information is about.

name -> (string)

The name of the workflow type.

Note

The combination of workflow type name and version must be unique with in a domain.

version -> (string)

The version of the workflow type.

Note

The combination of workflow type name and version must be unique with in a domain.

status -> (string)

The current status of the workflow type.

description -> (string)

The description of the type registered through register-workflow-type .

creationDate -> (timestamp)

The date when this type was registered.

deprecationDate -> (timestamp)

If the type is in deprecated state, then it is set to the date when the type was deprecated.

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.
