[ aws . quicksight ]



Generates a URL and authorization code that you can embed in your web server code. Before you use this command, make sure that you have configured the dashboards and permissions.

Currently, you can use GetDashboardEmbedURL only from the server, not from the user’s browser. The following rules apply to the combination of URL and authorization code:

  • They must be used together.

  • They can be used one time only.

  • They are valid for 5 minutes after you run this command.

  • The resulting user session is valid for 10 hours.

For more information, see Embedding Amazon QuickSight Dashboards in the Amazon QuickSight User Guide or Embedding Amazon QuickSight Dashboards in the Amazon QuickSight API Reference .

--aws-account-id (string)

The ID for the AWS account that contains the dashboard that you’re embedding.

--dashboard-id (string)

The ID for the dashboard, also added to the IAM policy.

--identity-type (string)

The authentication method that the user uses to sign in.

--session-lifetime-in-minutes (long)

How many minutes the session is valid. The session lifetime must be 15-600 minutes.

--undo-redo-disabled | --no-undo-redo-disabled (boolean)

Remove the undo/redo button on the embedded dashboard. The default is FALSE, which enables the undo/redo button.

--reset-disabled | --no-reset-disabled (boolean)

Remove the reset button on the embedded dashboard. The default is FALSE, which enables the reset button.

--user-arn (string)

The Amazon QuickSight user’s Amazon Resource Name (ARN), for use with QUICKSIGHT identity type. You can use this for any Amazon QuickSight users in your account (readers, authors, or admins) authenticated as one of the following:

  • Active Directory (AD) users or group members

  • Invited nonfederated users

  • IAM users and IAM role-based sessions authenticated through Federated Single Sign-On using SAML, OpenID Connect, or IAM federation.

--cli-input-json | --cli-input-yaml (string) Reads arguments from the JSON string provided. The JSON string follows the format provided by --generate-cli-skeleton. If other arguments are provided on the command line, those values will override the JSON-provided values. It is not possible to pass arbitrary binary values using a JSON-provided value as the string will be taken literally. This may not be specified along with --cli-input-yaml.

--generate-cli-skeleton (string) Prints a JSON skeleton to standard output without sending an API request. If provided with no value or the value input, prints a sample input JSON that can be used as an argument for --cli-input-json. Similarly, if provided yaml-input it will print a sample input YAML that can be used with --cli-input-yaml. If provided with the value output, it validates the command inputs and returns a sample output JSON for that command.

--cli-auto-prompt (boolean) Automatically prompt for CLI input parameters.

See ‘aws help’ for descriptions of global parameters.
