Today, AWS Step Functions introduces a new opt-in console experience that makes it easier to analyze, debug, and optimize Standard Workflows.

Builders create Step Functions workflows to orchestrate multiple services into business-critical applications with minimal code. Customers wanted better ways to debug workflow executions and analyze the payload as it passes through each state.

This blog post explains the new capabilities of the enhanced Step Functions executions page. It shows how to debug workflows quickly, sort and filter on state events, and view the input and output path processing for each state.

The new Executions Details page allows you to inspect executions using three different view types: Graph view, Table view, and Event view. It has multi-level navigation enhancements for analyzing the map state feature, the ability to search execution history based on unique attributes and improved events, and table navigation with filtering, sorting, and pagination. For a full list of all the feature enhancements, see the Step Functions documentation.
