Call Amazon EMR on EKS with Amazon Step Functions

Step Functions can control certain Amazon services directly from the Amazon States Language. For more information about working with Amazon Step Functions and its integrations, see the following:

How the Optimized Amazon EMR on EKS integration is different than the Amazon EMR on EKS Amazon SDK integration

To integrate Amazon Step Functions with Amazon EMR on EKS, use the Amazon EMR on EKS service integration APIs. The service integration APIs are the same as the corresponding Amazon EMR on EKS APIs, but not all APIs support all integration patterns, as shown in the following table.

API Request response Run a job (.sync)
CreateVirtualCluster
DeleteVirtualCluster
StartJobRun

Supported Amazon EMR on EKS APIs:

Note

There is a quota for the maximum input or result data size for a task in Step Functions. This restricts you to 262,144 bytes of data as a UTF-8 encoded string when you send to, or receive data from, another service. See Quotas related to state machine executions.

The following includes a Task state that creates a virtual cluster.

"Create_Virtual_Cluster": { "Type": "Task", "Resource": "arn:aws:states:::emr-containers:createVirtualCluster", "Parameters": { "Name": "MyVirtualCluster", "ContainerProvider": { "Id": "EKSClusterName", "Type": "EKS", "Info": { "EksInfo": { "Namespace": "Namespace" } } } }, "End": true }

The following includes a Task state that submits a job to a virtual cluster and waits for it to complete.

"Submit_Job": { "Type": "Task", "Resource": "arn:aws:states:::emr-containers:startJobRun.sync", "Parameters": { "Name": "MyJobName", "VirtualClusterId.$": "$.VirtualClusterId", "ExecutionRoleArn": "arn:aws:iam::<accountId>:role/job-execution-role", "ReleaseLabel": "emr-6.2.0-latest", "JobDriver": { "SparkSubmitJobDriver": { "EntryPoint": "s3://<mybucket>/jobs/trip-count.py", "EntryPointArguments": [ "60" ], "SparkSubmitParameters": "--conf spark.driver.cores=2 --conf spark.executor.instances=10 --conf spark.kubernetes.pyspark.pythonVersion=3 --conf spark.executor.memory=10G --conf spark.driver.memory=10G --conf spark.executor.cores=1 --conf spark.dynamicAllocation.enabled=false" } }, "ConfigurationOverrides": { "ApplicationConfiguration": [ { "Classification": "spark-defaults", "Properties": { "spark.executor.instances": "2", "spark.executor.memory": "2G" } } ], "MonitoringConfiguration": { "PersistentAppUI": "ENABLED", "CloudWatchMonitoringConfiguration": { "LogGroupName": "MyLogGroupName", "LogStreamNamePrefix": "MyLogStreamNamePrefix" }, "S3MonitoringConfiguration": { "LogUri": "s3://<mylogsbucket>" } } }, "Tags": { "taskType": "jobName" } }, "End": true }

The following includes a Task state that deletes a virtual cluster and waits for the deletion to complete.

"Delete_Virtual_Cluster": { "Type": "Task", "Resource": "arn:aws:states:::emr-containers:deleteVirtualCluster.sync", "Parameters": { "Id.$": "$.VirtualClusterId" }, "End": true }
