QuickSight asset management

Use this section to manage all of the assets in your Amazon QuickSight account in one unified view.

Here are some common reasons to use the asset manager:

  • Transfer assets – Quickly transfer assets from one user or group to another, for example when the original owner is no longer present.

  • Onboard new employees – Speed up onboarding of new employees by giving them access to the same assets that their teammates using.

  • Support authors – Better support authors in tenancies by giving support engineers temporary access to the author's dashboard.

  • Revoke access – Quickly audit and revoke permissions, for example after implementations, customer support, or unexpected events.
