AWS::Glue::Workflow - Amazon CloudFormation
Services or capabilities described in Amazon Web Services documentation might vary by Region. To see the differences applicable to the China Regions, see Getting Started with Amazon Web Services in China (PDF).


The AWS::Glue::Workflow is an Amazon Glue resource type that manages Amazon Glue workflows. A workflow is a container for a set of related jobs, crawlers, and triggers in Amazon Glue. Using a workflow, you can design a complex multi-job extract, transform, and load (ETL) activity that Amazon Glue can execute and track as single entity.


To declare this entity in your Amazon CloudFormation template, use the following syntax:


{ "Type" : "AWS::Glue::Workflow", "Properties" : { "DefaultRunProperties" : Json, "Description" : String, "MaxConcurrentRuns" : Integer, "Name" : String, "Tags" : [ Tag, ... ] } }
