Workflow Studio is a new visual workflow designer for Amazon Step Functions that makes it faster and easier to build workflows using a drag and drop interface in the Amazon Web Services console.

Amazon Step Functions is a workflow orchestration service that makes it easy to build distributed applications, automate IT and business processes, and build data and machine learning pipelines using Amazon Web Services services. You can compose services such as Amazon Lambda, Amazon ECS, and Amazon Glue into scalable, fault-tolerant workflows and applications.

Now, with the Workflow Studio for Amazon Step Functions, you can build state machine based workflows visually in an experience that exposes all of the capabilities of Step Functions in an easy to use, low code interface. You can drag and drop flow and task states onto the canvas, and then configure states and data transformations using built-in forms, while your workflow definition is composed in real time. If you are new to Step Functions, Workflow Studio provides an easy way to build your first workflow that delivers business value. If you are a long time Step Functions user, you can use Workflow Studio to quickly prototype new workflows and share them with others.

To get started using Workflow Studio, access the Workflow Studio from the Step Functions create and edit experience in the console. You can start from an existing workflow, an example workflow, or build a new workflow from scratch. Step Functions Workflow Studio is generally available in the following regions: Amazon Web Services China (Beijing) Region, operated by Sinnet and Amazon Web Services China (Ningxia) Region, operated by NWCD.
