Amazon QuickSight is now an AWS IAM Identity Center enabled application. This capability allows administrators that subscribe to QuickSight to use IAM Identity Center to enable their users to login using their existing credentials.

Administrators can create a new QuickSight account and select IAM Identity Center to configure QuickSight with their organization’s supported identity provider or with the IAM Identity Center identity store without requiring additional single sign-on configuration in QuickSight. They can use their identity provider groups to assign QuickSight roles (administrator, author and reader) to users. Amazon QuickSight users can seamlessly sign-in to QuickSight with their organization’s identity provider from the AWS access portal or directly from QuickSight and share assets with users and groups. 

This new feature is available in all AWS Regions where QuickSight and IAM Identity Center are available.
