Introduction

The Amazon Simple Workflow Service (Amazon SWF) makes it easy to build applications that coordinate work across distributed components. Amazon SWF gives full control over implementing and coordinating tasks without worrying about underlying complexities such as tracking their progress and maintaining their state.

In Amazon SWF, a task represents a logical unit of work that is performed by a component of your application. Coordinating tasks across the application involves managing intertask dependencies, scheduling, and concurrency in accordance with the logical flow of the application.

Setup

To set up the OpsRamp AWS integration and discover the AWS service, go to AWS Integration Discovery Profile and select SWF.
