Amazon Transfer Family now supports post-upload processing of partially uploaded files using managed workflows, offering customers even more control in defining and executing file-processing steps for both complete and incomplete file uploads.

Amazon Transfer Family provides fully managed workflows that allow you to specify and automate post-upload processing steps for files received using your Amazon Transfer Family servers. Previously, you could only trigger workflows on fully uploaded files. With this launch, you can now configure workflows to trigger processing of partially received files, for instance in the event of a premature session disconnect. This provides you more control on how to handle incomplete file uploads. For example, customers can now specify a custom workflow step that triggers when files are only partially received to automatically notify the user to retry sending the files, or to move incomplete files to a separate folder for troubleshooting.

Amazon Transfer Family support for this new feature is available in Amazon Web Services China (Beijing) Region, operated by Sinnet and Amazon Web Services China (Ningxia) Region, operated by NWCD, at no additional cost. To get started with this new feature in your Amazon Web Services account, visit the managed workflows documentation.
