Starting jobs and crawlers using triggers

In Amazon Glue, you can create Data Catalog objects called triggers, which you can use to either manually or automatically start one or more crawlers or extract, transform, and load (ETL) jobs. Using triggers, you can design a chain of dependent jobs and crawlers.


You can accomplish the same thing by defining workflows. Workflows are preferred for creating complex multi-job ETL operations. For more information, see Performing complex ETL activities using blueprints and workflows in Amazon Glue.
