What is a Workflow Type?

A Workflow Type is a name that maps to a Workflow Definition.

  • A single Workflow Type can be instantiated as multiple Workflow Executions.
  • A Workflow Type is scoped by a Task Queue. It is acceptable to have the same Workflow Type name map to different Workflow definitions if they are using completely different Workers.
