Amazon QuickSight users can now add combo charts to their analyses and dashboards. Combo charts are useful for visualizing data of different scales, such as product revenue ($) and units sold (#), in a single visualization. Data can be visualized as bars or lines, with two axes to display separate scales for each. Combo charts are available in both Standard and Enterprise Editions of Amazon QuickSight.

This release also adds support for Row-Level Security (RLS) in Amazon QuickSight Enterprise Edition. RLS enables QuickSight dataset owners to control access to data at row granularity based on permissions associated with the user interacting with the data. With RLS, Amazon QuickSight users only need to manage a single set of data and apply appropriate row-level dataset rules to it. All associated dashboards and analyses will enforce these rules, simplifying dataset management and removing the need to maintain multiple datasets for users with different data access privileges.

Combo charts and RLS are now available in all Amazon QuickSight Regions—US East (N. Virginia and Ohio), US West (Oregon), EU (Ireland), Asia Pacific (Singapore and Sydney).
