Coming soon! We are currently working on adding step re-ordering directly in the Project workspace UI. Will keep you posted when this feature is released.
For now, your workaround makes sense - the alternate is to undo your steps up until that index, apply the missing step, then reapply, but I suspect your approach will work better for longer recipes.
Awesome! Is there a way I can stay updated on the changes made to DataBrew?
Absolutely, I recommend subscribing to AWS What's New posts - we'll announce all of our larger features there. https://aws.amazon.com/new/
The time has come :) DataBrew now supports re-ordering recipe steps within the project workspace.
Open a project, and you'll find the "Reorder steps" icon in the right hand recipe panel (note that the button is enabled only if you have two or more steps).
