Deleting a Data Source - Amazon QuickSight

Deleting a Data Source

You can delete a data source if you no longer need it. Deleting a query-based database data source makes any associated datasets unusable. Deleting an Amazon S3, Salesforce, or SPICE-based database data source doesn't affect your ability to use any associated datasets. This is because the data is stored in SPICE. However, you can no longer refresh those datasets.

To delete a data source

  1. In the FROM EXISTING DATA SOURCES section of the Create a Data Set page, choose the data source that you want to delete.

  2. Choose Delete.
