AWS Step Functions announces support for HTTPS endpoints, so you can now integrate with virtually any SaaS application directly from your workflows. In addition, AWS Step Functions launches a new TestState API to test a single step in your workflow, that helps accelerate development so you can deploy new features fast.

AWS Step Functions is a visual workflow service that makes it easy to compose over 220 AWS services and now HTTPS endpoints such as SaaS applications into scalable, reliable, and resilient application components from a single location. With HTTPS endpoints you can easily integrate SaaS applications into your workflows, without the need for custom code, so you can focus on business logic and deploy new features faster. The new TestState API allows you to run a single state, verify that data manipulations work as expected, and inspect the raw requests and responses of a task making it easy to troubleshoot and fix errors as you build your workflow.

AWS Step Functions HTTPS endpoints and the new TestState API are available in the regions listed here. For a complete list of regions and service offerings, see AWS Regions.
