create-template

Description

Creates a template from an existing QuickSight analysis or template. You can use the resulting template to create a dashboard.

A template is an entity in QuickSight that encapsulates the metadata required to create an analysis and that you can use to create s dashboard. A template adds a layer of abstraction by using placeholders to replace the dataset associated with the analysis. You can use templates to create dashboards by replacing dataset placeholders with datasets that follow the same schema that was used to create the source analysis and template.

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

--source-entity (structure)

The Amazon Resource Name (ARN) of the source entity from which this template is being created. Currently, you can create a template from an analysis or another template. If the ARN is for an analysis, include its dataset references.

JSON Syntax:

{
  "SourceAnalysis": {
    "Arn": "string",
    "DataSetReferences": [
      {
        "DataSetPlaceholder": "string",
        "DataSetArn": "string"

--version-description (string)

A description of the current template version being created. This API operation creates the first version of the template. Every time UpdateTemplate is called, a new version is created. Each version of the template maintains a description of the version in the VersionDescription field.

--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.
