Synchronous and asynchronous execution
This page describes StackState version 4.3.
The StackState 4.3 version range is End of Life (EOL) and no longer supported. We encourage customers still running the 4.3 version range to upgrade to a more recent release.

Synchronous execution

When a function runs with synchronous execution, it will not have access to the StackState script APIs. If it is possible to choose an execution type, it is recommended to choose asynchronous execution.
