You can integrate with QuickSight to map the dependencies between QuickSight objects and data pipelines.
The search engine has been upgraded accordingly to include all QuickSight dashboards in the search.

To connect Sifflet to QuickSight, you will need to log in your AWS account as a user with admin permissions.

The main steps are the following:

  1. Configure a read-only role in your AWS account, with a trust policy allowing Sifflet to assume this role
  2. Add a QuickSight datasource in Sifflet

1- AWS configuration

Please find below the steps to configure your AWS account to allow Sifflet to connect with QuickSight:

a. Create an AWS policy granting read-only permissions on QuickSight resources

b. Create a role with a custom trust policy

a. Create a read-only policy

  • In the AWS console, go to IAM -> Policies, click on Create policy
  • Copy the following JSON.
    Do not forget to replace the region and AWS account ID with your own values in Resource
{
    "Version": "2012-10-17",
    "Statement": [
        {
            "Action": [
                "quicksight:list*",
                "quicksight:describe*"
            ],
            "Resource": "arn:aws:quicksight:eu-west-1:111122223333:*",
            "Effect": "Allow"
        }
    ]
}
  • On the next screen, you can choose the name of the policy, for instance, sifflet_quicksight_read_policy

b. Create the role with a custom trust policy

Please find the main steps below (you can also refer to AWS's official documentation):

  • In the AWS console, go to IAM -> Roles, click on Create role
  • Choose Custom trust policy and copy the following JSON.
    Do not forget to replace tenant with your tenant name.
    For example, if your instance is <https://datacompany.siffletdata.com> then your tenant is datacompany.
{
    "Version": "2012-10-17",
    "Statement": [
        {
            "Effect": "Allow",
            "Principal": {
                "AWS": [
                    "arn:aws:iam::386396202409:role/sifflet-<tenant>-integration"
                ]
            },
            "Action": "sts:AssumeRole"
        }
    ]
}
  • On the next screen, choose the previously created policy, sifflet_quicksight_read_policy in our example
  • On the next screen, you can choose the name of the role, for instance, sifflet_quicksight_read_role
  • You can now access your newly created role. Please take note of its ARN, you will need it to connect Sifflet to QuickSight

2- Add QuickSight datasource in Sifflet

  • On the left panel, choose "Integration" and then the "Sources" submenu
  • Click "New" Datasource and choose "QuickSight"
  • Information required:
