What is a Workflow Editor?
Editor lets you design a template of your own based on your own AWS needs. It provides you various features such as picking a predesigned template which gives a broad horizon from AWS cost optimisation to AWS security.
Here's a sample image of the Editor:
- Workflow Name:- Each workflow needs to be assigned a name before it can be saved. Every template is named by default, but can be altered; whereas a custom workflow needs to be named. A well named workflow makes it easier to to find and track executions.
- Explore Nodes:- This gives a description of each node.
- Pick a template:- Select a pre-defined workflow here.
- Select a region:- Select the AWS region for which the workflow is being created
- Select an AWS account:- The AWS account you want that template/workflow to be associated with.
- Stage/Deploy:- Once a Workflow is created and saved it can be deployed by enabling this toggle button. On deployment, the workflow gets executed as per the trigger selected
- Run Workflow: Executes the workflow immediately
- Save Workflow:- The workflow can be saved using this icon
- Trigger Node:- The trigger node is pre-existing on the editor as its the mandatory staring point in any workflow.
