Schedule the State Machine

Well! we have all greens on our state machine, time to put the cron in order to forget about this

We are going to use Cloudwacth Event Rules to create a scheduled task in order to execute this once a day.

Follow this link:

And we fill the form like this:

  • Event Source: Schedule
  • Cron expression: 0 10 * * ? * (every day at 10 AM UTC)
  • Targets: Step Functions state machine
    • State machine: the name of your state machine
    • Create a new role for this specific resource - Configure details
    • Name: MLcron - Create rule

And that’s it! the rule will be triggered in the specific time every day. More examples of cron expressions here:
