[ aws . quicksight ]



Searches for analyses that belong to the user specified in the filter.


This operation is eventually consistent. The results are best effort and may not reflect very recent updates and changes.

See also: AWS API Documentation

See 'aws help' for descriptions of global parameters.

search-analyses is a paginated operation. Multiple API calls may be issued in order to retrieve the entire data set of results. You can disable pagination by providing the --no-paginate argument. When using --output text and the --query argument on a paginated response, the --query argument must extract data from the results of the following query expressions: AnalysisSummaryList


--aws-account-id <value>
--filters <value>
[--cli-input-json <value>]
[--starting-token <value>]
[--page-size <value>]
[--max-items <value>]
[--generate-cli-skeleton <value>]


--aws-account-id (string)

The ID of the Amazon Web Services account that contains the analyses that you're searching for.

--filters (list)

The structure for the search filters that you want to apply to your search.


A filter that you apply when searching for one or more analyses.

Operator -> (string)

The comparison operator that you want to use as a filter, for example "Operator": "StringEquals" .

Name -> (string)

The name of the value that you want to use as a filter, for example "Name": "QUICKSIGHT_USER" .

Value -> (string)

The value of the named item, in this case QUICKSIGHT_USER , that you want to use as a filter, for example "Value" . An example is "arn:aws:quicksight:us-east-1:1:user/default/UserName1" .

Shorthand Syntax:

Operator=string,Name=string,Value=string ...

JSON Syntax:

    "Operator": "StringEquals",
    "Name": "QUICKSIGHT_USER",
    "Value": "string"

--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.

--starting-token (string)

A token to specify where to start paginating. This is the NextToken from a previously truncated response.

For usage examples, see Pagination in the AWS Command Line Interface User Guide .

--page-size (integer)

The size of each page to get in the AWS service call. This does not affect the number of items returned in the command's output. Setting a smaller page size results in more calls to the AWS service, retrieving fewer items in each call. This can help prevent the AWS service calls from timing out.

For usage examples, see Pagination in the AWS Command Line Interface User Guide .

--max-items (integer)

The total number of items to return in the command's output. If the total number of items available is more than the value specified, a NextToken is provided in the command's output. To resume pagination, provide the NextToken value in the starting-token argument of a subsequent command. Do not use the NextToken response element directly outside of the AWS CLI.

For usage examples, see Pagination in the AWS Command Line Interface User Guide .

--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.


AnalysisSummaryList -> (list)

Metadata describing the analyses that you searched for.


The summary metadata that describes an analysis.

Arn -> (string)

The Amazon Resource Name (ARN) for the analysis.

AnalysisId -> (string)

The ID of the analysis. This ID displays in the URL.

Name -> (string)

The name of the analysis. This name is displayed in the Amazon QuickSight console.

Status -> (string)

The last known status for the analysis.

CreatedTime -> (timestamp)

The time that the analysis was created.

LastUpdatedTime -> (timestamp)

The time that the analysis was last updated.

NextToken -> (string)

A pagination token that can be used in a subsequent request.

Status -> (integer)

The HTTP status of the request.

RequestId -> (string)

The Amazon Web Services request ID for this operation.
