About Our AWS Step Functions Status Page Integration

AWS Step Functions is a Cloud Infrastructure solution that StatusGator has been monitoring since March 2015. Over the past almost 9 years, we have collected data on on more than 1,614 outages that affected AWS Step Functions users. When AWS Step Functions publishes downtime on their status page, they do so across 4,752 components and 31 groups using 3 different statuses: up, warn, and down which we use to provide granular uptime metrics and notifications.

More than 3,800 StatusGator users monitor AWS Step Functions to get notified when it's down or has an outage. This makes it one of the most popular cloud infrastructure services monitored on our platform. We've sent more than 759,300 notifications to our users about AWS Step Functions incidents, providing transparency and peace of mind. You can get alerts by signing up for a free StatusGator account.

If AWS Step Functions is having system outages or experiencing other critical issues, red down notifications appear on the status page. In most cases, it means that core functions are not working properly, or there is some other serious customer-impacting event underway.

Warn notifications are used when AWS Step Functions is undergoing a non-critical issue like minor service issues, performance degradation, non-core bugs, capacity issues, or problems affecting a small number of users.

AWS Step Functions does not post separate notifications for planned maintenance work so we are unable to send notifications when maintenance windows begin. If you need AWS Step Functions maintenance notifications, please email us.

AWS Step Functions does not publish a feed of proactive maintenance events on their status page at this time. If they do, be sure to let us know and we'll aggregate AWS Step Functions maintenance events into your unified calendar.

When AWS Step Functions posts issues on their status page, we collect the main headline message and include that brief information or overview in notifications to StatusGator subscribers.

When AWS Step Functions has outages or other service-impacting events on their status page, we pull down the detailed informational updates and include them in notifications. These messages often include the current details about how the problem is being mitigated, or when the next update will occur.

Because AWS Step Functions has several components, each with their individual statuses, StatusGator can differentiate the status of each component in our notifications to you. This means, you can filter your status page notifications based on the services, regions, or components you utilize. This is an essential feature for complex services with many components or services spread out across many regions.
