Sharing dashboards - Amazon QuickSight

Sharing dashboards

By default, dashboards in Amazon QuickSight aren't shared with anyone and are only accessible to the owner. However, after you publish a dashboard, you can share it with other users or groups in your QuickSight account. You can also choose to share the dashboard with everyone in your QuickSight account and make the dashboard visible on the QuickSight homepage for all users in your account. Additionally, you can copy a link to the dashboard to share with others who have access to it.

Important

Users who have access to the dashboard can also see the data used in the associated analysis.

After you share a dashboard, you can review the other users or groups that have access to it and control the type of access they have. You can revoke access to the dashboard for any user. You can also remove yourself from it.

You can also embed interactive dashboards in websites and apps by copying the dashboard embed code and pasting it in your application. For more information, see Embedding dashboards for registered users with a 1-click embed code.

Granting access to a dashboard

You can share dashboards with specific users or groups in your account, with everyone in your Amazon QuickSight account, or with anyone on the internet. You can share dashboards via the QuickSight console, or the QuickSight API. See the following topics to learn more.

After you grant users access to a dashboard, you can copy a link to it and send it to them. Anyone with access to the dashboard can access the link and see the dashboard.
