Build with cross-sheet filters and controls in Amazon QuickSight

Amazon QuickSight is a cloud-powered, serverless, and embeddable business intelligence (BI) service that makes it straightforward to deliver insights to everyone in your organization. As a fully managed service, QuickSight lets you create and publish interactive dashboards that can then be accessed from any device and embedded into your applications, portals, and websites. QuickSight is expanding filter and control functionality. Previously, a filter could be scoped to a single visual, some visuals, all of the visuals for a dataset on a sheet, or all applicable visuals on a sheet. With the launch of cross-sheet filters and controls, authors can now create, delete, and edit filters that apply to multiple sheets. Previously, cross-sheet filters could be created with parameters in over forty clicks. With the expansion in functionality, they can be created in just five clicks, which shows how much this new feature simplifies setting up filters and controls that impact multiple sheets.

Manage access to insights with an account instance of AWS IAM Identity Center and Amazon QuickSight

Amazon QuickSight is an IAM Identity Center enabled application. Administrators can create a new QuickSight account and use IAM Identity Center for managing QuickSight users and groups. IAM Identity Center can store QuickSight user and group identities within IAM Identity Center itself as an identity store, or they can configure it with a third-party identity provider (IdP) used within their organization. Administrators can use groups in their IdP to assign QuickSight roles (administrator, author, and reader) to users. After they’re successfully authenticated via IdP, users can seamlessly access QuickSight dashboards either from the QuickSight application or as an embedded component within their business applications. Having QuickSight users and groups provisioned in an IdP also helps control authorization to QuickSight resources like dashboards and datasets.In this post, we discuss when you should use which type of instance, the benefits of using IAM Identity Center with QuickSight, how to configure an account instance, and how to use it to access QuickSight.
