AWS Step Functions (State Machines) is a web service that coordinates the components of distributed applications and microservices using visual workflows. Applications are built from individual components.

Each component performs a discrete function or task which allows you to scale and change applications quickly.


To set up the OpsRamp AWS integration and discover the AWS service, go to AWS Integration Discovery Profile and select State Machine.
