    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.

    Programmatic or automated queries for reader sessions or dashboards must use QuickSight capacity pricing.

    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 (when billed using per user model) 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.

    Do I have to pay for emailed reports from QuickSight?

    QuickSight users that are Authors receive unlimited email reports as part of their monthly subscription. Readers (per-user pricing model) are billed $0.30 (1 reader session) for each email report they receive, up to the monthly max charge of $5/reader. Each $0.30 charge for an email report also provides the user with credit for a QuickSight session within the calendar month that can be used at any time they log into their account.

    Are readers charged for email reports after they hit the $5 monthly max charge for Readers?

    No, all charges for a reader (per-user pricing model) are capped at $5/month. Readers will have unlimited access to both email reports and interactive dashboards after the monthly max charge of $5/reader.

    Session capacity pricing

    What is session capacity pricing?
    QuickSight’s session capacity pricing model allows purchase of sessions in bulk at discounted rates, for use across large user populations for embedded or BI use cases. With this model, the per-session costs decrease with commitments to larger usage.

    When do I use capacity pricing?

    Capacity pricing is beneficial when QuickSight dashboards need to be displayed to a large audience with dispersed usage, or in situations where the user population is expected to continuously grow. In both cases, the discounts on per-session pricing available with capacity pricing allow reduction in QuickSight costs over time. Session capacity pricing also allows use of QuickSight for programmatic access for display on large screens/monitors for consumption by multiple end users.

    How long is a Session?

    Amazon QuickSight Reader sessions are of 30-minute duration each. Each session capacity provides a specific number of sessions included, after which customers will be charged at the overage rate indicated for any additional sessions consumed for the duration of the capacity.

    Will an end-user be logged out after a 30-minute session?

    No, sessions are transparent to the end-user. Sessions will be renewed in 30-minute intervals, and time out 30 minutes after start upon inactivity. In case of embedded sessions, the host application will be responsible for renewing sessions based on setup.

    Available for all Enterprise Edition customers.

    Volume Tier $ per thousand metrics processed per month
    First 1,000,000 metrics processed $0.50
    Next 9,000,000 metrics processed $0.25
    Next 90,000,000 metrics processed $0.10
    > 100,000,000 metrics processed $0.05

    Pricing example:

    Say you want to continuously analyze anomalies on orders for the 1,000 products that you offer across 20 different geographical regions on a daily basis. The total number of metrics that will be processed in a given month is computed as follows:

    1,000 products + 20 regions + (1000 products * 20 regions) = 21,020 metrics.

    21,020 metrics * 30 days per month = 630,600 metrics processed per month.

    630,600 metrics / 1,000 * 0.50 per thousand metrics processed = $315.3 per month.

    Now let’s assume that in addition to the 1,000 products across the 20 different geographies, you also want to break orders down by your top 10 customers across each of these combinations. The total number of metrics that will be processed in a given month is computed as follows:

    1,000 products + 20 regions + 10 customers + (1,000 products * 20 regions) + (1,000 products * 20 regions * 10 customers) = 221,030 metrics.

    2,630,600 metrics * 30 days per month = 6.6MM metrics processed per month.

    The following table computes the monthly price at each of the tiers.

    Volume Discount

    (Metrics Processed)

    $ Per Thousand Metrics Processed Spend Per Tier
    First 1MM metrics $0.50 $500
    Next 5.6MM metrics $0.25 $1,400
    Total $1,900

    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.
