Step 9: Run the Workflow - AWS Lake Formation

Step 9: Run the Workflow

Because you specified that the workflow is run-on-demand, you must manually start the workflow.

  • On the Blueprints page, select the workflow lakeformationcloudtrailtest, and on the Actions menu, choose Start.

    As the workflow runs, you can view its progress in the Last run status column. Choose the refresh button occasionally.

    The status goes from RUNNING, to Discovering, to Importing, to COMPLETED.

    When the workflow completes:

    • The Data Catalog will have new metadata tables.

    • Your CloudTrail logs will be ingested into the data lake.

    If the workflow fails, do the following:

    1. Select the workflow, and on the Actions menu, choose View graph.

      The workflow opens in the AWS Glue console.

    2. Ensure that the workflow is selected, and choose the History tab.

    3. Under History, select the most recent run and choose View run details.

    4. Select a failed job or crawler in the dynamic (runtime) graph, and review the error message. Failed nodes are either red or yellow.
