How to use Boto3 to stop a workflow in AWS Glue Data Catalog

AWSBoto3PythonServer Side ProgrammingProgramming

In this article, we will see how a user can stop a workflow present in an AWS account.

Example

Problem Statement: Use boto3 library in Python to stop a workflow.

Approach/Algorithm to solve this problem

  • Step 1: Import boto3 and botocore exceptions to handle exceptions.

  • Step 2: workflow_name and run_id are the required parameters in this function.

  • Step 3: Create an AWS session using boto3 lib. Make sure region_name is mentioned in the default profile. If it is not mentioned, then explicitly pass the region_name while creating the session.

  • Step 4: Create an AWS client for glue.

  • Step 5: Now use the stop_workflow_run function and pass the parameter workflow_name as Name and run_id as RunId.

  • Step 6: It returns the response metadata and stops the workflow.

  • Step 7: Handle the generic exception if something went wrong while stopping a workflow.

Example Code

The following code stops a running workflow −

import boto3
from botocore.exceptions import ClientError

def stop_a_workflow(workflow_name, run_id)
   session = boto3.session.Session()
   glue_client = session.client('glue')
   try:
      response = glue_client.stop_workflow_run(Name=workflow_name, RunId= run_id)
      return response
   except ClientError as e:
      raise Exception("boto3 client error in stop_a_workflow: " + e.__str__())
   except Exception as e:
      raise Exception("Unexpected error in stop_a_workflow: " + e.__str__())
print(stop_a_workflow("test-daily"))

Output

{'RunId': 'wr_64e880240692fddd5e1b19aed587f856bc20a96f54bc', 'ResponseMetadata': {'RequestId': '782e953b-8ee3-4876-9b2c-cd35e147b513', 'HTTPStatusCode': 200, 'HTTPHeaders': {'date': 'Sun, 28 Mar 2021 08:11:02 GMT', 'content-type': 'application/x-amz-json-1.1', 'content-length': '79', 'connection': 'keep-alive', 'x-amzn-requestid': '782e953b-********************************13'}, 'RetryAttempts': 0}}
