[ aws . quicksight ]



(Enterprise edition only) Creates a new namespace for you to use with Amazon QuickSight.

A namespace allows you to isolate the QuickSight users and groups that are registered for that namespace. Users that access the namespace can share assets only with other users or groups in the same namespace. They can't see users and groups in other namespaces. You can create a namespace after your AWS account is subscribed to QuickSight. The namespace must be unique within the AWS account. By default, there is a limit of 100 namespaces per AWS account. To increase your limit, create a ticket with AWS Support.

--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.
