Starting today, Amazon QuickSight Enterprise Edition customers can use Federated Single Sign-On (SSO) using SAML 2.0 to access QuickSight. This allows users to sign in to their Identity Provider portals with existing credentials and then access QuickSight with a single click, without having to enter any QuickSight-specific account names or passwords. With Federated SSO and QuickSight’s permissions-based just-in-time user provisioning capabilities, AWS administrators can use existing identity management mechanisms to enable QuickSight access for thousands of users with a few clicks.
This feature is now available in all QuickSight regions – US East (N. Virginia and Ohio), US West (Oregon) and EU (Ireland). To learn more, check out the Big Data blog post on Amazon QuickSight’s support for Federated SSO using SAML 2.0.
