What is AWS Directory Service for Microsoft Active Directory, and how can I use AWS Managed Microsoft AD to authenticate users in Amazon QuickSight?

Amazon QuickSight supports both AWS Directory Service for Microsoft Active Directory and Active Directory Connector. AWS Directory Service for Microsoft Active Directory creates a fully managed Microsoft Active Directory in the AWS Cloud. For more information, see Getting Started with AWS Managed Microsoft AD. To use AWS Directory Service for Microsoft Active Directory to authenticate users in Amazon QuickSight, follow these steps:

  1. Create Your AWS Managed Microsoft AD directory. Note: For Amazon QuickSight Enterprise Edition accounts, Create Your AWS Managed Microsoft AD directory in the N. Virginia region. For more information, see Availability of Editions.
  2. Create an Amazon QuickSight Enterprise Edition account.
  3. Manage the User Accounts in Amazon QuickSight Enterprise Edition.

When you use AWS Directory Service to launch a directory, AWS creates an organizational unit (OU) with the same name as your domain. AWS also creates an administrative account with delegated administrative rights for the OU. You can create user accounts, groups, and policies within the OU by using Active Directory users and groups. For more information, see Best Practices for AWS Managed Microsoft AD.
