Amazon Step Functions now allows you to easily restart workflows from their point of failure, so you can recover from failure faster, increase efficiency, and pay only for what you need. Amazon Step Functions is a visual workflow service capable of orchestrating Amazon Web Services services to automate business processes and data processing workloads.

Amazon Step Functions helps you build resilient workflows by taking advantage of its native error handling logic, such as automatic retries and catch statements, to manage expected failures without operator intervention. However, unexpected disruptions, such as downstream outages, can still pose challenges and ultimately lead to workflow failures. Now, you can
simplify recovery by restarting those workflows, following unexpected failures, without operator intervention so you recover faster. Using the input from the previously failed task you can restart your workflow without the need to rerun steps that were previously successful, saving you time and increasing efficiency.

Amazon Step Functions redrive is generally available in Amazon Web Services China (Beijing) Region, operated by Sinnet and Amazon Web Services China (Ningxia) Region, operated by NWCD.
