Local step-function does not apply success task request until Lambda will not finishes

0

Hi, I am trying to send a task-success request for my 'waitForTaskToken' step, but I see that the local step-machine server is waiting for the lambda to finish, instead of going to the next step how it works now on the AWS. At this moment task-success request from AWS CLI froze.

Local step-machine server does not return a response for 'send-task-success' request when it has been sent and waiting for the lambda to finish.

Step Functions Local Version: 1.8.1 (docker image) Step-function definition:

{
  "Comment": "",
  "StartAt": "waitForTaskToken",
  "States": {
    "waitForTaskToken": {
      "Type": "Task",
      "Resource": "arn:aws:states:::lambda:invoke.waitForTaskToken",
      "HeartbeatSeconds": 900,
      "TimeoutSeconds": 900,
      "Parameters": {
        "FunctionName": "arn:aws:lambda:us-east-1:123456789012:function:delay-function",
        "Payload": {
          "Token.$": "$$.Task.Token"
        }
      },
      "End": true
    }
  }
}

lambda 'delay-function' in this case - simple NodeJS function which prints the task token and waits 130 seconds.

As we can see in the logs below:

  1. 2022-02-09 10:16:25.078 - Executed local step-function

  2. 2022-02-09T10:16:25.092Z - Received task token 'f68313c6-89bc-420f-b335-b8369dc5064e' and waiting 130000 ms

  3. 2022-02-09 10:16:50.673 - I sent a task-success request from aws cli 'aws stepfunctions --endpoint-url http://localhost:8083 send-task-success --task-output '{"test": 123}' --task-token f68313c6-89bc-420f-b335-b8369dc5064e' after which this CLI command freezed, the server does not return a response.

  4. 2022-02-09 10:16:50.673: - local step-function server received this request but does not return the result. ISSUE THERE does not stop the current step with the result from 'send-task-success' request until Lambda will not finishes.

  5. 2022-02-09 10:18:35.100 - Lambda return data, (Duration: 130006.11 ms).

  6. 2022-02-09 10:18:35.102 - Only now the local step-function server has returned the result for 'send-task-success' request. ISSUE THERE for some reason only now server returns a response for 'send-task-success' request instead of returning it at the same time it was sent (as it works now on AWS)
