    FAQs

    Who is a QuickSight “Reader”?
    A QuickSight Reader is a user who consumes interactive dashboards. Readers can log in via their organization’s preferred authentication mechanism (QuickSight username/password, SAML portal or AD auth), view shared dashboards, filter data, drill down to details or export data as a CSV file, using a web browser or mobile app. Readers do not have any allocated SPICE capacity.

    Individual end-users can be provisioned to access QuickSight as Readers. Reader pricing applies to manual session interactions only. We reserve the right charge for the reader at the higher monthly author rate if, in our discretion, we determine that you are using reader sessions for other types of use (e.g., programmatic or automated queries).

    What is a Reader Session?
    A Reader Session is an interval of time during which a QuickSight Reader can access dashboards and interact with data for a fixed, per-session charge.

    How long is a Reader Session?
    Amazon QuickSight Reader sessions are of 30-minute duration each. Each session is charged at $0.30 with maximum charges of $5 per Reader in a month

    When does a Reader Session start and end?
    A Reader Session starts with user-initiated action (e.g., login, dashboard load, page refresh, drill-down or filtering) and runs for next 30-minutes. Keeping Amazon QuickSight open in a background browser window/tab does not result in active sessions until the Reader initiates action on page.

    Will a Reader be logged out after a 30-minute session?
    No, Reader sessions are transparent to the QuickSight Reader. Reader sessions will be automatically renewed in 30-minute intervals, and time out 30 minutes after start upon inactivity. Readers will only be logged out of QuickSight when their authentication expires, which is dependent on the authentication scheme in place (can be one of QuickSight-only users, SAML/Open ID Connect or Active Directory).

    Will a Reader be charged if QuickSight is open in a browser in a background tab?
    No, Amazon QuickSight being open in a background tab will not result in usage charges. A session is only initiated when there is explicit Reader activity on the QuickSight web application. If QuickSight is moved to the background or minimized, there will be no additional sessions charged until the Reader interacts with QuickSight again.

    What does the $5/mo. max on reader charges mean?
    Readers are charged at $0.30/session for the first 16 sessions in a calendar month. The 17th session in the month is charged at $0.20/session, after which there are no more charges for the month. The reader has unlimited access to QuickSight for $5 charge accrued from the first 17 sessions of the month.

    FAQs

    I have a Standard Edition account. Can I add readers?
    No, Readers with Pay-per-Session pricing are a feature of Amazon QuickSight Enterprise Edition. If you have a Standard Edition account, you can upgrade to Enterprise Edition via the QuickSight management page.

    Can I upgrade from Standard Edition to Enterprise Edition?
    Yes, Standard Edition account accounts can be upgraded to Enterprise Edition through the QuickSight management page. Existing authentication details and user data will be seamlessly migrated to Enterprise Edition. Enterprise Edition rates for user and SPICE capacity will apply.

    Can I downgrade from Enterprise Edition to Standard Edition?
    No, you will not be able to downgrade from Amazon QuickSight Enterprise Edition to Standard Edition. Amazon QuickSight Enterprise Edition offers enhanced functionality such as QuickSight Readers, connectivity to data sources in Private VPC, row-level security, hourly refresh of SPICE data as well as AD connectivity and group-based management of assets for AD accounts. Due to the differences in feature set, a downgrade might result in loss of data connectivity and security, and as a result, this option is not supported.
