Viewing Top Contributors

Contribution analysis locates the contributing factors to an anomaly. The report displays only the significant contributors—not all of them. For example, Amazon QuickSight can show you the top customers that contributed to a spike in sale in the USA for health products. If you have dimensions in your data that you aren't using in the anomaly detection, you can add up to four of them for contribution analysis.

Use the following procedure to add contribution analysis for up to four category dimensions.

Before you begin, you need to open an analysis that has an existing anomaly detection. If your analysis isn't using anomaly detection, see the previous section, Detecting Anomalies with Amazon QuickSight.

  1. Open the anomaly configuration screen by choosing the v-shaped on-visual menu, then choosing Configure anomaly.

  2. Scroll to the bottom of the screen. Under Contribution analysis, choose up to four dimensions to run an analysis on.

  3. To confirm your choices, choose OK. Otherwise, choose Cancel.
