AWS Step Functions is now integrated with Amazon API Gateway REST and HTTP APIs, making it faster and easier to build application workflows including microservices created by API Gateway. You can use the API Gateway integration to create a workflow that orchestrates HTTP and REST APIs acting as the ‘front door’ for business logic running on AWS Lambda, a serverless compute service or Amazon Elastic Container Service, fully managed container orchestration service.

AWS Step Functions allows you to build resilient workflows using AWS services such as AWS Lambda, Amazon SQS, Amazon ECS, and now with Amazon API Gateway. Amazon API Gateway is a fully managed service that makes it easy for developers to create, publish, maintain, monitor, and secure APIs at any scale. AWS Step Functions supports built-in error handling, parameter passing, recommended security settings, and state management, reducing the amount of code you have to write and maintain. 

To get started, read the AWS Step Functions Developer Guide and deploy the one-click API Gateway sample project. The API Gateway service integration is available in all regions where both AWS Step Functions and Amazon API Gateway services are available. For a complete list of regions and service offerings, see AWS Regions.
