AWS Step Functions now supports workflow execution events, which make it faster and easier to build and monitor event-driven, serverless workflows. Execution event notifications can be automatically delivered when a workflow starts or completes through CloudWatch Events, reaching targets like AWS Lambda, Amazon SNS, Amazon Kinesis, or AWS Step Functions for automated response to the event.

You can enable CloudWatch Event notifications for Step Functions in minutes. Customers simply have to identify the state machine, what event changes are of interest, and the targets for the notification. Please refer to the AWS Step Functions Developer Guide for additional details.

AWS Step Functions allows you to add resilient workflow automation to your applications. The steps of your workflow can exist anywhere, including in AWS Lambda functions, on Amazon EC2, or on-premises. AWS Step Functions is also integrated with Amazon ECS, AWS Fargate, Amazon DynamoDB, Amazon SNS, Amazon SQS, AWS Batch, AWS Glue, and Amazon SageMaker. You can connect and coordinate all these services in minutes—without writing code. For more information, please visit the AWS Step Functions product page.
