Application states

When you create an application with EMR Serverless, the application run enters the CREATING state. It then passes through the following states until it succeeds (exits with code 0) or fails (exits with a non-zero code).

Applications can have the following states:

State Description
Creating The application is being prepared and isn't ready to use yet.
Created The application has been created but hasn't provisioned capacity yet. You can modify the application to change its initial capacity configuration.
Starting The application is starting and is provisioning capacity.
Started The application is ready to accept new jobs. The application only accepts jobs when it's in this state.
Stopping All jobs have completed and the application is releasing its capacity. EMR Serverless may move an application to this state when there are failures in provisioning capacity.
Stopped The application is stopped and no resources are running on the application. You can modify the application to change its initial capacity configuration.
Terminated The application has been terminated and doesn't appear on your application list. EMR Serverless may move an application to this state when there are failures in creation.

The following diagram shows the trajectory of EMR Serverless application states.
