[ aws . quicksight ]



Generates an embed URL that you can use to embed an Amazon QuickSight dashboard in your website, without having to register any reader users. Before you use this action, make sure that you have configured the dashboards and permissions.

The following rules apply to the generated URL:

  • It contains a temporary bearer token. It is valid for 5 minutes after it is generated. Once redeemed within this period, it cannot be re-used again.
  • The URL validity period should not be confused with the actual session lifetime that can be customized using the `` SessionLifetimeInMinutes `` parameter. The resulting user session is valid for 15 minutes (default) to 10 hours (maximum).
  • You are charged only when the URL is used or there is interaction with Amazon QuickSight.

For more information, see Embedded Analytics in the Amazon QuickSight User Guide .

For more information about the high-level steps for embedding and for an interactive demo of the ways you can customize embedding, visit the Amazon QuickSight Developer Portal .

--cli-input-json (string) Performs service operation based on the JSON string provided. The JSON string follows the format provided by --generate-cli-skeleton.

--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.
