Amazon Step Functions is now integrated with Amazon API Gateway REST and HTTP APIs, making it faster and easier to build application workflows including microservices created by API Gateway. You can use the API Gateway integration to create a workflow that orchestrates HTTP and REST APIs acting as the ‘front door’ for business logic running on Amazon Lambda, a serverless compute service or Amazon Elastic Container Service, fully managed container orchestration service. 

Amazon Step Functions allows you to build resilient workflows using Amazon services such as Amazon Lambda, Amazon SQS, Amazon ECS, and now with Amazon API Gateway. Amazon API Gateway is a fully managed service that makes it easy for developers to create, publish, maintain, monitor, and secure APIs at any scale. Amazon Step Functions supports built-in error handling, parameter passing, recommended security settings, and state management, reducing the amount of code you have to write and maintain.
