Specifies the error type.

  • ALREADY_EXISTS: occurs for a copy step, if the overwrite option is not selected and a file with the same name already exists in the target location.

  • BAD_REQUEST: a general bad request: for example, a step that attempts to tag an EFS file returns BAD_REQUEST, as only S3 files can be tagged.

  • CUSTOM_STEP_FAILED: occurs when the custom step provided a callback that indicates failure.

  • INTERNAL_SERVER_ERROR: a catch-all error that can occur for a variety of reasons.

  • NOT_FOUND: occurs when a requested entity, for example a source file for a copy step, does not exist.

  • PERMISSION_DENIED: occurs if your policy does not contain the correct permissions to complete one or more of the steps in the workflow.

  • TIMEOUT: occurs when the execution times out.


    You can set the TimeoutSeconds for a custom step, anywhere from 1 second to 1800 seconds (30 minutes).

  • THROTTLED: occurs if you exceed the new execution refill rate of one workflow per second.
