AWS Data Pipeline now offers an on-demand schedule type, providing you the option to run your pipeline immediately on activation instead of on a time-based schedule. With on-demand scheduling, your pipeline will run once every time it is activated. This allows you to run your pipelines on an ad-hoc basis. For example, you can now activate a pipeline from an AWS Lambda function based on an external event.
