Class Decision Specifies a decision made by the decider. A decision can be one of these types:
  • CancelTimer: cancels a previously started timer and records a TimerCanceled event in the history.
  • CancelWorkflowExecution: closes the workflow execution and records a WorkflowExecutionCanceled event in the history.
  • CompleteWorkflowExecution: closes the workflow execution and records a WorkflowExecutionCompleted event in the history .
  • ContinueAsNewWorkflowExecution: closes the workflow execution and starts a new workflow execution of the same type using the same workflow ID and a unique run ID. A WorkflowExecutionContinuedAsNew event is recorded in the history.
  • FailWorkflowExecution: closes the workflow execution and records a WorkflowExecutionFailed event in the history.
  • RecordMarker: records a MarkerRecorded event in the history. Markers can be used for adding custom information in the history for instance to let deciders know that they do not need to look at the history beyond the marker event.
  • RequestCancelActivityTask: attempts to cancel a previously scheduled activity task. If the activity task was scheduled but has not been assigned to a worker, then it will be canceled. If the activity task was already assigned to a worker, then the worker will be informed that cancellation has been requested in the response to RecordActivityTaskHeartbeat.
  • RequestCancelExternalWorkflowExecution: requests that a request be made to cancel the specified external workflow execution and records a RequestCancelExternalWorkflowExecutionInitiated event in the history.
  • ScheduleActivityTask: schedules an activity task.
  • ScheduleLambdaFunction: schedules a AWS Lambda function.
  • SignalExternalWorkflowExecution: requests a signal to be delivered to the specified external workflow execution and records a SignalExternalWorkflowExecutionInitiated event in the history.
  • StartChildWorkflowExecution: requests that a child workflow execution be started and records a StartChildWorkflowExecutionInitiated event in the history. The child workflow execution is a separate workflow execution with its own history.
  • StartTimer: starts a timer for this workflow execution and records a TimerStarted event in the history. This timer will fire after the specified delay and record a TimerFired event.

Access Control

If you grant permission to use RespondDecisionTaskCompleted, you can use IAM policies to express permissions for the list of decisions returned by this action as if they were members of the API. Treating decisions as a pseudo API maintains a uniform conceptual model and helps keep policies readable. For details and example IAM policies, see Using IAM to Manage Access to Amazon SWF Workflows.

Decision Failure

Decisions can fail for several reasons

  • The ordering of decisions should follow a logical flow. Some decisions might not make sense in the current context of the workflow execution and will therefore fail.
  • A limit on your account was reached.
  • The decision lacks sufficient permissions.

One of the following events might be added to the history to indicate an error. The event attribute's cause parameter indicates the cause. If cause is set to OPERATION_NOT_PERMITTED, the decision failed because it lacked sufficient permissions. For details and example IAM policies, see Using IAM to Manage Access to Amazon SWF Workflows.

  • ScheduleActivityTaskFailed: a ScheduleActivityTask decision failed. This could happen if the activity type specified in the decision is not registered, is in a deprecated state, or the decision is not properly configured.
  • ScheduleLambdaFunctionFailed: a ScheduleLambdaFunctionFailed decision failed. This could happen if the AWS Lambda function specified in the decision does not exist, or the AWS Lambda service's limits are exceeded.
  • RequestCancelActivityTaskFailed: a RequestCancelActivityTask decision failed. This could happen if there is no open activity task with the specified activityId.
  • StartTimerFailed: a StartTimer decision failed. This could happen if there is another open timer with the same timerId.
  • CancelTimerFailed: a CancelTimer decision failed. This could happen if there is no open timer with the specified timerId.
  • StartChildWorkflowExecutionFailed: a StartChildWorkflowExecution decision failed. This could happen if the workflow type specified is not registered, is deprecated, or the decision is not properly configured.
  • SignalExternalWorkflowExecutionFailed: a SignalExternalWorkflowExecution decision failed. This could happen if the workflowID specified in the decision was incorrect.
  • RequestCancelExternalWorkflowExecutionFailed: a RequestCancelExternalWorkflowExecution decision failed. This could happen if the workflowID specified in the decision was incorrect.
  • CancelWorkflowExecutionFailed: a CancelWorkflowExecution decision failed. This could happen if there is an unhandled decision task pending in the workflow execution.
  • CompleteWorkflowExecutionFailed: a CompleteWorkflowExecution decision failed. This could happen if there is an unhandled decision task pending in the workflow execution.
  • ContinueAsNewWorkflowExecutionFailed: a ContinueAsNewWorkflowExecution decision failed. This could happen if there is an unhandled decision task pending in the workflow execution or the ContinueAsNewWorkflowExecution decision was not configured correctly.
  • FailWorkflowExecutionFailed: a FailWorkflowExecution decision failed. This could happen if there is an unhandled decision task pending in the workflow execution.

The preceding error events might occur due to an error in the decider logic, which might put the workflow execution in an unstable state The cause field in the event structure for the error event indicates the cause of the error.

A workflow execution may be closed by the decider by returning one of the following decisions when completing a decision task: CompleteWorkflowExecution, FailWorkflowExecution, CancelWorkflowExecution and ContinueAsNewWorkflowExecution. An UnhandledDecision fault will be returned if a workflow closing decision is specified and a signal or activity event had been added to the history while the decision task was being performed by the decider. Unlike the above situations which are logic issues, this fault is always possible because of race conditions in a distributed system. The right action here is to call RespondDecisionTaskCompleted without any decisions. This would result in another decision task with these new events included in the history. The decider should handle the new events and may decide to close the workflow execution.

How to code a decision

You code a decision by first setting the decision type field to one of the above decision values, and then set the corresponding attributes field shown below:

Class DecisionTask A structure that represents a decision task. Decision tasks are sent to deciders in order for them to make decisions.
Class DecisionTaskCompletedEventAttributes Provides details of the DecisionTaskCompleted event.
Class DecisionTaskScheduledEventAttributes Provides details about the DecisionTaskScheduled event.

Class DefaultUndefinedException SimpleWorkflow exception
Class DeprecateActivityTypeRequest Container for the parameters to the DeprecateActivityType operation. Deprecates the specified activity type. After an activity type has been deprecated, you cannot create new tasks of that activity type. Tasks of this type that were scheduled before the type was deprecated will continue to run. 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.

Class OperationNotPermittedException SimpleWorkflow exception
Class PendingTaskCount Contains the count of tasks in a task list.
Class PollForActivityTaskRequest Container for the parameters to the PollForActivityTask operation. 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.

Class PollForActivityTaskResponse Configuration for accessing Amazon PollForActivityTask service
Class PollForActivityTaskResult Contains the response data from the PollForActivityTask operation.
Class PollForDecisionTaskRequest Container for the parameters to the PollForDecisionTask operation. 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.

Class PollForDecisionTaskResponse Configuration for accessing Amazon PollForDecisionTask service
Class PollForDecisionTaskResult Contains the response data from the PollForDecisionTask operation.
Class RecordActivityTaskHeartbeatRequest Container for the parameters to the RecordActivityTaskHeartbeat operation. 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.

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.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.

Class RequestCancelWorkflowExecutionRequest Container for the parameters to the RequestCancelWorkflowExecution operation. 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. 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.Because this action allows the workflow to properly clean up and gracefully close, it should be used instead of TerminateWorkflowExecution when possible.

Access Control

Class RequestCancelWorkflowExecutionResponse
Class RespondActivityTaskCanceledRequest Container for the parameters to the RespondActivityTaskCanceled operation. 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.

Class RespondActivityTaskCanceledResponse
Class RespondActivityTaskCompletedRequest Container for the parameters to the RespondActivityTaskCompleted operation. 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.

Class RespondActivityTaskCompletedResponse
Class RespondActivityTaskFailedRequest Container for the parameters to the RespondActivityTaskFailed operation. 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.

Class RespondActivityTaskFailedResponse
Class RespondDecisionTaskCompletedRequest Container for the parameters to the RespondDecisionTaskCompleted operation. 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.
