Amazon QuickSight launches public API for SPICE CMK Data Encryption

Posted on: May 22, 2024

Amazon QuickSight is excited to announce the launch of public API support for Customer Managed Keys (CMK) to encrypt and manage SPICE datasets. Previously, customers were required to manually configure CMK data encryption keys via the QuickSight console UI. Now with this API enhancement, QuickSight users can programmatically opt in and configure the customer managed keys, seamlessly integrating it into their adoption and migration pipeline. Once turned on, the feature would benefit QuickSight users to 1/ be able to revoke access to SPICE datasets with one click, and 2/ maintain an auditable log that tracks how SPICE datasets are accessed.

The new SPICE CMK API is now available in Amazon QuickSight Enterprise Editions in all QuickSight regions - US East (N. Virginia and Ohio), US West (Oregon), Canada (Central), South America (São Paulo), Europe (Frankfurt, Stockholm, Paris, Ireland and London), Asia Pacific (Mumbai, Seoul, Singapore, Sydney and Tokyo), and the AWS GovCloud (US-West) Region.
