Manage AWS Glue Jobs with Step Functions

Step Functions can control certain AWS services directly from Amazon States Language (ASL). To learn more, see Working with other services and Pass parameters to a service API.

How the Optimized AWS Glue integration is different than the AWS GlueAWS SDK integration
  • The Run a Job (.sync) integration pattern is available.

  • The JobName field is extracted from the request and inserted into the response, which normally only contains JobRunID.

Supported AWS Glue API:

Parameters in Step Functions are expressed in PascalCase

Even if the native service API is in camelCase, for example the API action startSyncExecution, you specify parameters in PascalCase, such as: StateMachineArn.

The following includes a Task state that starts an AWS Glue job.

"Glue StartJobRun": { "Type": "Task", "Resource": "arn:aws:states:::glue:startJobRun.sync", "Parameters": { "JobName": "GlueJob-JTrRO5l98qMG" }, "Next": "ValidateOutput" },
