[ aws . quicksight ]



Generates a session URL and authorization code that you can use to embed the Amazon QuickSight console in your web server code. Use GetSessionEmbedUrl where you want to provide an authoring portal that allows users to create data sources, datasets, analyses, and dashboards. The users who access an embedded QuickSight console need belong to the author or admin security cohort. If you want to restrict permissions to some of these features, add a custom permissions profile to the user with the `` UpdateUser `` API operation. Use `` RegisterUser `` API operation to add a new user with a custom permission profile attached. For more information, see the following sections in the Amazon QuickSight User Guide :

[--generate-cli-skeleton <value>]


--aws-account-id (string)

The ID for the AWS account associated with your QuickSight subscription.

--entry-point (string)

The URL you use to access the embedded session. The entry point URL is constrained to the following paths:

  • /start

  • /start/analyses

  • /start/dashboards

  • /start/favorites

  • /dashboards/*DashboardId* `` - where ``DashboardId is the actual ID key from the QuickSight console URL of the dashboard

  • /analyses/*AnalysisId* `` - where ``AnalysisId is the actual ID key from the QuickSight console URL of the analysis

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

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

--user-arn (string)

The Amazon QuickSight user’s Amazon Resource Name (ARN), for use with QUICKSIGHT identity type. You can use this for any type of Amazon QuickSight users in your account (readers, authors, or admins). They need to be 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

Omit this parameter for users in the third group – IAM users and IAM role-based sessions.

--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.

See ‘aws help’ for descriptions of global parameters.

Status -> (integer)

The HTTP status of the request.

RequestId -> (string)

The AWS request ID for this operation.
