CodeCatalyst workflow actions validation

0

When we use the gui-based workflow editor, either in yaml or visual mode, we can validate our workflow as we make changes which is really useful.

However, if we're working in the dev environments either via Cloud9 or other IDE at the command line level and we edit the .codecatalyst/workflows/*yaml files, we don't get any validation until we commit and try to run the workflow.

I'm assuming there's some command or api that the visual editor uses - would it be possible to make this available in the dev environments, either as a command or a aws cli option, similar to aws cloudformation validate-template ?

As this feature does not exist today in Cloud9 or any other IDE I agree with Simon - this is a GREAT idea.

There could also be an option to "validate" workflows through git commit hooks (pre-push)? And this could be automatically installed for all CodeCatalyst repositories?

And: bring the visual workflow editor to the IDEs too! ;)

This feature does not exist today in CodeCatalyst though would be very useful as you suggest. I would recommend leaving Feedback (upper right-hand corner within CodeCatalyst) as the CodeCatalyst product team is constantly reviewing feedback submitted by users in order to provide a better experience.

Thanks for sharing the feedback, Simon. We can make the workflow validation experience better, and will be tracking this feedback in our backlog. Keep those requests coming!
