Description

Registers a new workflow type and its configuration settings in the specified domain. The retention period for the workflow history is set by the RegisterDomain action. If the type already exists, then a TypeAlreadyExists fault is returned. You cannot change the configuration settings of a workflow type once it is registered 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

-DefaultChildPolicy <ChildPolicy>
If set, specifies the default policy to use for the child workflow executions when a workflow execution of this type is terminated, by calling the TerminateWorkflowExecution action explicitly or due to an expired timeout. This default can be overridden when starting a workflow execution using the StartWorkflowExecution action or the StartChildWorkflowExecutionDecision.The supported child policies are:
  • TERMINATE – The child executions are terminated.
  • REQUEST_CANCEL – A request to cancel is attempted for each child execution by recording a WorkflowExecutionCancelRequested event in its history. It is up to the decider to take appropriate actions when it receives an execution history with this event.
  • ABANDON – No action is taken. The child executions continue to run.

-DefaultExecutionStartToCloseTimeout <String>
If set, specifies the default maximum duration for executions of this workflow type. You can override this default when starting an execution through the StartWorkflowExecution Action or StartChildWorkflowExecutionDecision.The duration is specified in seconds; an integer greater than or equal to 0. Unlike some of the other timeout parameters in Amazon SWF, you cannot specify a value of "NONE" for defaultExecutionStartToCloseTimeout; there is a one-year max limit on the time that a workflow execution can run. Exceeding this limit always causes the workflow execution to time out.
Required?False
Position?Named
Accept pipeline input?True (ByPropertyName)
-DefaultLambdaRole <String>
The default IAM role attached to this workflow type.Executions of this workflow type need IAM roles to invoke Lambda functions. If you don't specify an IAM role when you start this workflow type, the default Lambda role is attached to the execution. For more information, see https://docs.aws.amazon.com/amazonswf/latest/developerguide/lambda-task.html in the Amazon SWF Developer Guide.
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 workflow 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 Amazon SWF Developer Guide.
Required?False

Accept pipeline input?True (ByPropertyName)
-DefaultTaskStartToCloseTimeout <String>
If set, specifies the default maximum duration of decision tasks for this workflow type. This default can be overridden when starting a workflow execution using the StartWorkflowExecution action or the StartChildWorkflowExecutionDecision.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>
Textual description of the workflow type.
Required?False
Position?Named
Accept pipeline input?True (ByPropertyName)
-Domain <String>
The name of the domain in which to register the workflow type.
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 workflow type.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.RegisterWorkflowTypeResponse). 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 workflow type.The workflow type consists of the name and version, the combination of which must be unique within the domain. To get a list of all currently registered workflow types, use the ListWorkflowTypes action.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.

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>

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.

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.
