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:

  1. 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.
  2. Explore Nodes:- This gives a description of each node.
  3. Pick a template:- Select a pre-defined workflow here.
  4. Select a region:- Select the AWS region for which the workflow is being created
  5. Select an AWS account:- The AWS account you want that template/workflow to be associated with.
  6. 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
  7. Run Workflow: Executes the workflow immediately
  8. Save Workflow:- The workflow can be saved using this icon
  9. Trigger Node:- The trigger node is pre-existing on the editor as its the mandatory staring point in any workflow.
  10. Zoom bar:- It allows you to zoom in and out for better visibility.
  11. Help/Support:- Chat with us directly to get the most out of the product.
  12. Exit Editor:- To navigate back to the dashboard.
  13. Existing workflows:- this leads you to the workflows page where you can view all the workflows created
