Now you can use your QuickSight account that is tied to one AWS account and access specific Amazon S3 buckets from other AWS accounts to create your analyses and dashboards.
Many AWS customers use multiple AWS accounts across different departments and applications within the same company. However, QuickSight is usually deployed in a single AWS account. With cross-account access to S3, you can use your QuickSight deployment that is associated with an AWS account and ingest your S3 data residing in specific buckets from other AWS accounts that you own, and create your analyses and dashboards. With this capability, you can use QuickSight to consolidate analytics and reporting using data from all your AWS accounts.
This feature is now available in all QuickSight regions - US East (N. Virginia and Ohio), US West (Oregon), EU (Ireland), and Asia Pacific (Singapore and Sydney).
