Description

Registers a new activity type along with its configuration settings in the specified domain. A TypeAlreadyExists fault is returned if the type already exists in the domain. You cannot change any configuration settings of the type after its registration, and it must be registered as a new version. 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.
    • defaultTaskList.name: String constraint. The key is swf:defaultTaskList.name.
    • name: String constraint. The key is swf:name.
    • version: String constraint. The key is swf: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.

Parameters

-DefaultTaskHeartbeatTimeout <String>
If set, specifies the default maximum time before which a worker processing a task of this type must report progress by calling RecordActivityTaskHeartbeat. If the timeout is exceeded, the activity task is automatically timed out. This default can be overridden when scheduling an activity task using the ScheduleActivityTaskDecision. If the activity worker subsequently attempts to record a heartbeat or returns a result, the activity worker receives an UnknownResource fault. In this case, Amazon SWF no longer considers the activity task to be valid; the activity worker should clean up the activity task.The duration is specified in seconds, an integer greater than or equal to 0. You can use NONE to specify unlimited duration.
Required?False
Position?Named
Accept pipeline input?True (ByPropertyName)
-DefaultTaskList_Name <String>
The name of the task list.
Required?False
Position?Named
Accept pipeline input?True (ByPropertyName)
-DefaultTaskPriority <String>
The default task priority to assign to the activity type. If not assigned, then 0 is used. Valid values are integers that range from Java's Integer.MIN_VALUE (-2147483648) to Integer.MAX_VALUE (2147483647). Higher numbers indicate higher priority.For more information about setting task priority, see Setting Task Priority in the in the Amazon SWF Developer Guide..
Required?False
Position?Named
Accept pipeline input?True (ByPropertyName)
-DefaultTaskScheduleToCloseTimeout <String>
If set, specifies the default maximum duration for a task of this activity type. This default can be overridden when scheduling an activity task using the ScheduleActivityTaskDecision.The duration is specified in seconds, an integer greater than or equal to 0. You can use NONE to specify unlimited duration.
Required?False
Position?Named
Accept pipeline input?True (ByPropertyName)
-DefaultTaskScheduleToStartTimeout <String>
If set, specifies the default maximum duration that a task of this activity type can wait before being assigned to a worker. This default can be overridden when scheduling an activity task using the ScheduleActivityTaskDecision.The duration is specified in seconds, an integer greater than or equal to 0. You can use NONE to specify unlimited duration.
Required?False
Position?Named
Accept pipeline input?True (ByPropertyName)
-DefaultTaskStartToCloseTimeout <String>
If set, specifies the default maximum duration that a worker can take to process tasks of this activity type. This default can be overridden when scheduling an activity task using the ScheduleActivityTaskDecision.The duration is specified in seconds, an integer greater than or equal to 0. You can use NONE to specify unlimited duration.
Required?False
Position?Named
Accept pipeline input?True (ByPropertyName)
-Description <String>
A textual description of the activity type.
Required?False
Position?Named
Accept pipeline input?True (ByPropertyName)
-Domain <String>
The name of the domain in which this activity is to be registered.
Required?True
Position?Named
Accept pipeline input?True (ByPropertyName)
This parameter overrides confirmation prompts to force the cmdlet to continue its operation. This parameter should always be used with caution.
Required?False
Position?Named
Accept pipeline input?True (ByPropertyName)
-Name <String>
The name of the activity type within the domain.The specified string must not start or end with whitespace. It must not contain a : (colon), / (slash), | (vertical bar), or any control characters (\u0000-\u001f | \u007f-\u009f). Also, it must not be the literal string arn.
Required?True
Position?1
Accept pipeline input?True (ByValue, ByPropertyName)
-PassThru <SwitchParameter>
Changes the cmdlet behavior to return the value passed to the Name parameter. The -PassThru parameter is deprecated, use -Select '^Name' instead. This parameter will be removed in a future version.
Required?False
Position?Named
Accept pipeline input?True (ByPropertyName)
-Select <String>
Use the -Select parameter to control the cmdlet output. The cmdlet doesn't have a return value by default. Specifying -Select '*' will result in the cmdlet returning the whole service response (Amazon.SimpleWorkflow.Model.RegisterActivityTypeResponse). Specifying -Select '^ParameterName' will result in the cmdlet returning the selected cmdlet parameter value.
Required?False
Position?Named
Accept pipeline input?True (ByPropertyName)
-Version <String>
The version of the activity type.The activity type consists of the name and version, the combination of which must be unique within the domain.The specified string must not start or end with whitespace. It must not contain a : (colon), / (slash), | (vertical bar), or any control characters (\u0000-\u001f | \u007f-\u009f). Also, it must not be the literal string arn.
Required?True

Common Credential and Region Parameters

-AccessKey <String>
The AWS access key for the user account. This can be a temporary access key if the corresponding session token is supplied to the -SessionToken parameter.
Required?False
Position?Named
Accept pipeline input?True (ByPropertyName)
AliasesAK
-Credential <AWSCredentials>
An AWSCredentials object instance containing access and secret key information, and optionally a token for session-based credentials.
Required?False
Position?Named
Accept pipeline input?True (ByValue, ByPropertyName)
-EndpointUrl <String>
The endpoint to make the call against.Note: This parameter is primarily for internal AWS use and is not required/should not be specified for normal usage. The cmdlets normally determine which endpoint to call based on the region specified to the -Region parameter or set as default in the shell (via Set-DefaultAWSRegion). Only specify this parameter if you must direct the call to a specific custom endpoint.
Required?False
Position?Named
Accept pipeline input?True (ByPropertyName)
-NetworkCredential <PSCredential>
Used with SAML-based authentication when ProfileName references a SAML role profile. Contains the network credentials to be supplied during authentication with the configured identity provider's endpoint. This parameter is not required if the user's default network identity can or should be used during authentication.
Required?False
Position?Named
Accept pipeline input?True (ByValue, ByPropertyName)
-ProfileLocation <String>
Used to specify the name and location of the ini-format credential file (shared with the AWS CLI and other AWS SDKs)If this optional parameter is omitted this cmdlet will search the encrypted credential file used by the AWS SDK for .NET and AWS Toolkit for Visual Studio first. If the profile is not found then the cmdlet will search in the ini-format credential file at the default location: (user's home directory)\.aws\credentials.If this parameter is specified then this cmdlet will only search the ini-format credential file at the location given.As the current folder can vary in a shell or during script execution it is advised that you use specify a fully qualified path instead of a relative path.
Required?False

-ProfileName <String>
The user-defined name of an AWS credentials or SAML-based role profile containing credential information.
