generate-embed-url-for-registered-user

Description

Generates an embed URL that you can use to embed an Amazon QuickSight experience in your website. This action can be used for any type of user registered in an Amazon QuickSight account. Before you use this action, make sure that you have configured the relevant Amazon QuickSight resource 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 (minimum) to 10 hours (maximum). The default session duration is 10 hours.
  • 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 .

The users who accesses an embedded Amazon QuickSight console needs to belong to the author or admin security cohort. If you want to restrict permissions to some of these features, add a custom permissions profile to the user with the `` UpdateUser `` API operation. Use the `` RegisterUser `` API operation to add a new user with a custom permission profile attached. For more information, see the following sections in the Amazon QuickSight User Guide :
