Signing In to Amazon QuickSight - Amazon QuickSight

Signing In to Amazon QuickSight

You can sign in on the Amazon QuickSight page, https://quicksight.aws.amazon.com/. Follow the screen prompts to sign in. For your convenience, the procedure is outlined here. It varies slightly depending on the type of account you have.

  1. For Account name, type the QuickSight account name. This is the name that was created for the QuickSight subscription in this AWS account. Take note of it in case you need it later.

  2. Enter your email address if you are prompted for it.

  3. If the username is blank, enter the user name you want to use to sign in. User names that contain a semicolon (;) aren't supported. Choose one of the following:

    • For organizational users – the user name provided by your administrator.

      Your account can be based on IAM credentials, a Single Sign-On (SSO) service, or your email address. If you received an invitation email from another Amazon QuickSight user, it indicates what type of credentials to use.

    • For individual users – the user name you created for yourself.

      This is usually the IAM credentials you created.

  4. Enter your password in Password. If you aren't sure, ask the administrator. If you create a new password, enter your password again to confirm it.

    Passwords are case-sensitive, must be between 8 and 64 characters in length, and must contain at least one character from three of the following categories:

    • Lowercase letters (a–z)

    • Uppercase letters (A–Z)

    • Numbers (0–9)

    • Nonalphanumeric characters (~!@#$%^&*_-+=`|\(){}[]:;"'<>,.?/)

  5. Choose Sign in. In some cases, this button is labeled Create account and sign in.

  6. (Only for users invited by email.) You are prompted to type the account name provided in your email invitation. If you mistype it, you get an authentication error. To change the account name, choose the account name next to the Account name, and type in the correct one.

If your sign-in process happens automatically and you need to use a different account, use a private or incognito browser window. Doing this prevents the browser from reusing cached settings.
