The Utoolity team is pleased to present Automation with AWS 1.1 – this release adds a new action for AWS Step Functions state machines to enable coordination of components of distributed applications and microservices using visual workflows. You can now use the Start Step Functions Execution action with all existing integrations for Bamboo, JIRA and JIRA Service Desk.
Use the Start Step Functions Execution action
You can now use the Start Step Functions Execution action to process Bamboo notifications, JIRA workflow transitions and JIRA Service Desk automation rule executions with AWS Step Functions to coordinate the components of distributed applications and microservices using visual workflows:
Building applications from individual components that each perform a discrete function lets you scale and change applications quickly. Step Functions is a reliable way to coordinate components and step through the functions of your application. Step Functions provides a graphical console to arrange and visualize the components of your application as a series of steps. This makes it simple to build and run multi-step applications. Step Functions automatically triggers and tracks each step, and retries when there are errors, so your application executes in order and as expected. Step Functions logs the state of each step, so when things do go wrong, you can diagnose and debug problems quickly. You can change and add steps without even writing code, so you can easily evolve your application and innovate faster.
