Getting and setting workflow run properties in Amazon Glue

Use workflow run properties to share and manage state among the jobs in your Amazon Glue workflow. You can set default run properties when you create the workflow. Then, as your jobs run, they can retrieve the run property values and optionally modify them for input to jobs that are later in the workflow. When a job modifies a run property, the new value exists only for the workflow run. The default run properties aren't affected.

If your Amazon Glue job is not part of a workflow, these properties will not be set.

The following sample Python code from an extract, transform, and load (ETL) job demonstrates how to get the workflow run properties.

import sys import boto3 from awsglue.transforms import * from awsglue.utils import getResolvedOptions from awsglue.context import GlueContext from pyspark.context import SparkContext glue_client = boto3.client("glue") args = getResolvedOptions(sys.argv, ['JOB_NAME','WORKFLOW_NAME', 'WORKFLOW_RUN_ID']) workflow_name = args['WORKFLOW_NAME'] workflow_run_id = args['WORKFLOW_RUN_ID'] workflow_params = glue_client.get_workflow_run_properties(Name=workflow_name, RunId=workflow_run_id)["RunProperties"] target_database = workflow_params['target_database'] target_s3_location = workflow_params['target_s3_location']

The following code continues by setting the target_format run property to 'csv'.

workflow_params['target_format'] = 'csv' glue_client.put_workflow_run_properties(Name=workflow_name, RunId=workflow_run_id, RunProperties=workflow_params)
