Options

--user-name (string)

The Amazon QuickSight user name that you want to update.

--aws-account-id (string)

The ID for the Amazon Web Services account that the user is in. Currently, you use the ID for the Amazon Web Services account that contains your Amazon QuickSight account.

--namespace (string)

The namespace. Currently, you should set this to default .

--email (string)

The email address of the user that you want to update.

--role (string)

The Amazon QuickSight role of the user. The role can be one of the following default security cohorts:

  • READER : A user who has read-only access to dashboards.
  • AUTHOR : A user who can create data sources, datasets, analyses, and dashboards.
  • ADMIN : A user who is an author, who can also manage Amazon QuickSight settings.

The name of the Amazon QuickSight role is invisible to the user except for the console screens dealing with permissions.

Possible values:

  • ADMIN
  • AUTHOR
  • READER
  • RESTRICTED_AUTHOR
  • RESTRICTED_READER

--custom-permissions-name (string)

(Enterprise edition only) The name of the custom permissions profile that you want to assign to this user. Customized permissions allows you to control a user's access by restricting access the following operations:

  • Create and update data sources
  • Create and update datasets
  • Create and update email reports
  • Subscribe to email reports

A set of custom permissions includes any combination of these restrictions. Currently, you need to create the profile names for custom permission sets by using the Amazon QuickSight console. Then, you use the RegisterUser API operation to assign the named set of permissions to a Amazon QuickSight user.

Amazon QuickSight custom permissions are applied through IAM policies. Therefore, they override the permissions typically granted by assigning Amazon QuickSight users to one of the default security cohorts in Amazon QuickSight (admin, author, reader).

This feature is available only to Amazon QuickSight Enterprise edition subscriptions.

--unapply-custom-permissions | --no-unapply-custom-permissions (boolean)

A flag that you use to indicate that you want to remove all custom permissions from this user. Using this parameter resets the user to the state it was in before a custom permissions profile was applied. This parameter defaults to NULL and it doesn't accept any other value.

--external-login-federation-provider-type (string)

The type of supported external login provider that provides identity to let a user federate into Amazon QuickSight with an associated Identity and Access Management(IAM) role. The type of supported external login provider can be one of the following.

  • COGNITO : Amazon Cognito. The provider URL is cognito-identity.amazonaws.com. When choosing the COGNITO provider type, don’t use the "CustomFederationProviderUrl" parameter which is only needed when the external provider is custom.
  • CUSTOM_OIDC : Custom OpenID Connect (OIDC) provider. When choosing CUSTOM_OIDC type, use the CustomFederationProviderUrl parameter to provide the custom OIDC provider URL.
  • NONE : This clears all the previously saved external login information for a user. Use the `` DescribeUser `` API operation to check the external login information.

--custom-federation-provider-url (string)

The URL of the custom OpenID Connect (OIDC) provider that provides identity to let a user federate into Amazon QuickSight with an associated Identity and Access Management(IAM) role. This parameter should only be used when ExternalLoginFederationProviderType parameter is set to CUSTOM_OIDC .

--external-login-id (string)

The identity ID for a user in the external login provider.

--cli-input-json (string) Performs service operation based on the JSON string provided. The JSON string follows the format provided by --generate-cli-skeleton. If other arguments are provided on the command line, the CLI values will override the JSON-provided values. It is not possible to pass arbitrary binary values using a JSON-provided value as the string will be taken literally.

--generate-cli-skeleton (string) Prints a JSON skeleton to standard output without sending an API request. If provided with no value or the value input, prints a sample input JSON that can be used as an argument for --cli-input-json. If provided with the value output, it validates the command inputs and returns a sample output JSON for that command.
