Hi Everyone I am trying to build a pipeline with intermediate steps that needs user input, is that possible to to build such pipeline? Any document or blog link that explains how to go about will be helpful

I went thru it ..it has approval step but is it similar approach with user input? .. I assumed that user input has to be given upfront before we run the flow

Ah I see @Thanneermalai Lakshmanan - this isn't supported at the moment but sounds like a good feature request! I'll open a ticket for it šŸ™‚

As a workaround, you could read data from elsewhere after a task run is resumed, using the manual trigger more as a prompt to change the data (for example a text file in a bucket somewhere. Though this isn't exactly an ideal solution I understand

we are maintaining mapping files upfront in s3 but this approach would give us the flexibility to create it dynamically ..I wasn't aware of this pause option..will give it a shot..thanks for the quick response
