Amazon QuickSight launches an asset management console for administrators. With an interactive UI, administrators can now list and search all account assets regardless of who the owner of these assets are. They can list all the assets a user or group has access to including in a multi-tenant environment. They can perform asset level or bulk actions like transferring assets from one person to another when someone leaves the organization, share assets with other users or revoke asset access. Current supported assets are dashboards, analyses, datasets, datasources and shared folders. Asset management console is available to administrators with access to the QuickSight admin console pages via IAM credentials. For more information, visit here.

This release also supports APIs for searching assets which allows administrators to automate and govern at scale. Administrators and developers can programmatically search for assets a user or group has access to and search for assets by name. For more information, visit here.

The asset management console is only available with Amazon QuickSight Enterprise Edition. This is available in the following AWS Regions: US East (N. Virginia and Ohio), US West (Oregon), Canada, Sao Paulo, Europe (Frankfurt, Ireland and London), Asia Pacific (Mumbai, Seoul, Singapore, Sydney and Tokyo), and AWS GovCloud (US-West).
