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 in AWS Lake Formation.

  1. On the Lake Formation console, on the Blueprints page, select the workflow lakeformationjdbctest.

  2. Choose Actions, and then choose Start.

  3. As the workflow runs, 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 is complete:

    • The Data Catalog has new metadata tables.

    • Your data is ingested into the data lake.

    If the workflow fails, do the following:

    1. Select the workflow. Choose Actions, and then choose View graph.

      The workflow opens in the AWS Glue console.

    2. Select the workflow and choose the History tab.

    3. 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.
