Values -> (list)

The values of a string parameter.

(string)

IntegerParameters -> (list)

(long)

DecimalParameters -> (list)

Decimal parameters.

(structure)

A decimal parameter.

(timestamp)

JSON Syntax:

{
  "StringParameters": [
    {
      "Name": "string",
      "Values": ["string", ...]
    }
    ...
  ],
  "IntegerParameters": [
    {
      "Name": "string",
      "Values": [long, ...]
    }
    ...
  ],
  "DecimalParameters": [
    {

  ],
  "DateTimeParameters": [
    {
      "Name": "string",
      "Values": [timestamp, ...]
    }
    ...
  ]
}

--permissions (list)

A structure that describes the principals and the resource-level permissions on an analysis. You can use the Permissions structure to grant permissions by providing a list of AWS Identity and Access Management (IAM) action information for each principal listed by Amazon Resource Name (ARN).

To specify no permissions, omit Permissions .

(structure)

Permission for the resource.

Principal -> (string)

The Amazon Resource Name (ARN) of the principal. This can be one of the following:

  • The ARN of an Amazon QuickSight user or group associated with a data source or dataset. (This is common.)
  • The ARN of an Amazon QuickSight user, group, or namespace associated with an analysis, dashboard, template, or theme. (This is common.)
  • The ARN of an AWS account root: This is an IAM ARN rather than a QuickSight ARN. Use this option only to share resources (templates) across AWS accounts. (This is less common.)

Actions -> (list)

The IAM action to grant or revoke permissions on.

(string)

Shorthand Syntax:

Principal=string,Actions=string,string ...

JSON Syntax:

[
  {
    "Principal": "string",
    "Actions": ["string", ...]
  }
  ...
]

--source-entity (structure)

A source entity to use for the analysis that you're creating. This metadata structure contains details that describe a source template and one or more datasets.

SourceTemplate -> (structure)

The source template for the source entity of the analysis.

DataSetReferences -> (list)

The dataset references of the source template of an analysis.

(structure)

Dataset reference.

DataSetPlaceholder -> (string)

Dataset placeholder.

DataSetArn -> (string)

Dataset Amazon Resource Name (ARN).

Arn -> (string)

The Amazon Resource Name (ARN) of the source template of an analysis.

JSON Syntax:

{
  "SourceTemplate": {
    "DataSetReferences": [
      {
        "DataSetPlaceholder": "string",
        "DataSetArn": "string"
      }
      ...
    ],
    "Arn": "string"
  }
}

--theme-arn (string)

The ARN for the theme to apply to the analysis that you're creating. To see the theme in the QuickSight console, make sure that you have access to it.

--tags (list)

Contains a map of the key-value pairs for the resource tag or tags assigned to the analysis.

(structure)

The key or keys of the key-value pairs for the resource tag or tags assigned to the resource.

Key -> (string)

Tag key.

Value -> (string)

Tag value.

Shorthand Syntax:

Key=string,Value=string ...

JSON Syntax:

[
  {
    "Key": "string",
    "Value": "string"
  }
  ...
]

--cli-input-json (string) Performs service operation based on the JSON string provided. The JSON string follows the format provided by --generate-cli-skeleton. If other arguments are provided on the command line, the CLI 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.

--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. 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.

Output

Arn -> (string)

The ARN for the analysis.

AnalysisId -> (string)

The ID of the analysis.

CreationStatus -> (string)

The status of the creation of the analysis.

Status -> (integer)

The HTTP status of the request.

RequestId -> (string)

The AWS request ID for this operation.
