Class StartWorkflowExecutionCommand

Starts an execution of the workflow type in the specified domain using the provided workflowId and input data.

This action returns the newly started workflow execution.

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.

    • tagList.member.0: The key is swf:tagList.member.0.

    • tagList.member.1: The key is swf:tagList.member.1.

    • tagList.member.2: The key is swf:tagList.member.2.

    • tagList.member.3: The key is swf:tagList.member.3.

    • tagList.member.4: The key is swf:tagList.member.4.

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

    • workflowType.name: String constraint. The key is swf:workflowType.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.

example

Use a bare-bones client and the command you need to make an API call.

import { SWFClient, StartWorkflowExecutionCommand } from "@aws-sdk/client-swf"; // ES Modules import
// const { SWFClient, StartWorkflowExecutionCommand } = require("@aws-sdk/client-swf"); // CommonJS import
const client = new SWFClient(config);
const command = new StartWorkflowExecutionCommand(input);
const response = await client.send(command);
