create-account-subscription

Description

Creates an Amazon QuickSight account, or subscribes to Amazon QuickSight Q.

The Amazon Web Services Region for the account is derived from what is configured in the CLI or SDK. This operation isn't supported in the US East (Ohio) Region, South America (Sao Paulo) Region, or Asia Pacific (Singapore) Region.

Before you use this operation, make sure that you can connect to an existing Amazon Web Services account. If you don't have an Amazon Web Services account, see Sign up for Amazon Web Services in the Amazon QuickSight User Guide . The person who signs up for Amazon QuickSight needs to have the correct Identity and Access Management (IAM) permissions. For more information, see IAM Policy Examples for Amazon QuickSight in the Amazon QuickSight User Guide .

If your IAM policy includes both the Subscribe and CreateAccountSubscription actions, make sure that both actions are set to Allow . If either action is set to Deny , the Deny action prevails and your API call fails.

You can't pass an existing IAM role to access other Amazon Web Services services using this API operation. To pass your existing IAM role to Amazon QuickSight, see Passing IAM roles to Amazon QuickSight in the Amazon QuickSight User Guide .

You can't set default resource access on the new account from the Amazon QuickSight API. Instead, add default resource access from the Amazon QuickSight console. For more information about setting default resource access to Amazon Web Services services, see Setting default resource access to Amazon Web Services services in the Amazon QuickSight User Guide .
