[ aws . quicksight ]



Describes the customizations associated with the provided Amazon Web Services account and Amazon Amazon QuickSight namespace in an Amazon Web Services Region. The Amazon QuickSight console evaluates which customizations to apply by running this API operation with the Resolved flag included.

To determine what customizations display when you run this command, it can help to visualize the relationship of the entities involved.

  • Amazon Web Services account - The Amazon Web Services account exists at the top of the hierarchy. It has the potential to use all of the Amazon Web Services Regions and Amazon Web Services Services. When you subscribe to Amazon QuickSight, you choose one Amazon Web Services Region to use as your home Region. That's where your free SPICE capacity is located. You can use Amazon QuickSight in any supported Amazon Web Services Region.
  • Amazon Web Services Region - In each Amazon Web Services Region where you sign in to Amazon QuickSight at least once, Amazon QuickSight acts as a separate instance of the same service. If you have a user directory, it resides in us-east-1, which is the US East (N. Virginia). Generally speaking, these users have access to Amazon QuickSight in any Amazon Web Services Region, unless they are constrained to a namespace. To run the command in a different Amazon Web Services Region, you change your Region settings. If you're using the CLI, you can use one of the following options:
  • Namespace - A QuickSight namespace is a partition that contains users and assets (data sources, datasets, dashboards, and so on). To access assets that are in a specific namespace, users and groups must also be part of the same namespace. People who share a namespace are completely isolated from users and assets in other namespaces, even if they are in the same Amazon Web Services account and Amazon Web Services Region.
  • Applied customizations - Within an Amazon Web Services Region, a set of Amazon QuickSight customizations can apply to an Amazon Web Services account or to a namespace. Settings that you apply to a namespace override settings that you apply to an Amazon Web Services account. All settings are isolated to a single Amazon Web Services Region. To apply them in other Amazon Web Services Regions, run the CreateAccountCustomization command in each Amazon Web Services Region where you want to apply the same customizations.

--aws-account-id (string)

The ID for the Amazon Web Services account that you want to describe Amazon QuickSight customizations for.

--namespace (string)

The Amazon QuickSight namespace that you want to describe Amazon QuickSight customizations for.

--resolved | --no-resolved (boolean)

The Resolved flag works with the other parameters to determine which view of Amazon QuickSight customizations is returned. You can add this flag to your command to use the same view that Amazon QuickSight uses to identify which customizations to apply to the console. Omit this flag, or set it to no-resolved , to reveal customizations that are configured at different levels.

--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.
