QuickSight users can now visualize their Lake Formation–protected Athena data, natively using the benefits that come with Lake Formation, including table and column-level access controls. Athena is already a popular choice for storing data because of its serverless model, and Lake Formation makes it even easier to manage access and permissions as part of a data lake. With QuickSight’s Lake Formation integration, that ease of management now extends all the way through your analytics layer, keeping all your access-management centralized.
All you do is connect your QuickSight account to Athena, and select the Lake Formation–protected database you want to access. Now you can start managing both table and column-level access for your QuickSight users directly from Lake Formation.
QuickSight’s Lake Formation integration is available for Enterprise Edition customers today in the three US QuickSight regions: US East (Ohio and N. Virginia) and US West (Oregon). Additional regions will be added soon.
