Create the Workflow and the Create Cluster Task

Create the Workflow and the Create Cluster Task

Create a workflow and add a Create Cluster task to it. You can add one or more Mapping tasks. You can add a Delete Cluster task to create an ephemeral cluster.
  1. In the Developer tool, choose
    File
    New
    Workflow
    .
  2. Name the workflow.
    The workflow opens with a Start_Event and an End_Event.
  3. Right-click the editor pane and choose
    Add Workflow Object...
    Create Cluster Task
    and click
    OK
    .
    The following image shows the new workflow with the Create Cluster task:
    The image shows a workflow with a Start_Event, a Create Cluster task, and an End_Event.
  4. Complete the Create Cluster task general properties:
    Property
    Description
    Name
    Task name.
    Description
    Optional description.
    Connection Name
    Name of the cloud provisioning configuration to use with the workflow.
    Connection Type
    Choose from the available options, which correspond to the compute platform. For example, Amazon EMR.
  5. Configure task input and output properties.
    Property
    Description
    Input properties
    The Create Cluster task does not require any unique values for task input properties.
    Output properties
    Set the Cluster Identifier property to the default value, AutoDeployCluster.
    The Cluster Identifier property of the Create Cluster task overrides the Cluster Identifier property of the Mapping task.
  6. Connect the workflow Start_Event to the Create Cluster task.
