Amazon Step Functions now supports payload sizes up to 256KB. Previously, the limit was 32,768 characters. Now, you can pass larger payloads in your standard and express workflows, allowing Step Functions to seamlessly coordinate multiple services like Amazon Lambda, Amazon SNS, and Amazon SQS that already support larger payloads.

Amazon Step Functions allows you to build resilient workflows using Amazon Web Services services such as Amazon Lambda, Amazon Simple Notification Service, Amazon Fargate, and more - now with larger payloads. For your standard workflows, the Execution History page in the console loads faster. You can now debug your standard workflows faster using the updated GetExecutionHistory API.

You can use larger payloads with your existing and new Step Functions workflows at no additional set up or costs.

This feature is available in all regions where Amazon Step Functions is available, including Amazon Web Services China (Beijing) Region, operated by Sinnet and Amazon Web Services China (Ningxia) Region, operated by NWCD.
