Athena queries for different region

I want to be able to do Athena queries in several different regions from QuickSight. However, when setting up the dataset QuickSight only shows data catalogue and databases from the region it was setup in. I’m not able to find any decent documentation for how to discover data catalogues and databases for Athena queries in multiple regions. How can we achieve this ?

Hi, @thomasmars. Welcome to the QuickSight Community, and thanks so much for posting your question! :slight_smile:

Due to the US holiday, our team will review this question on Monday. In the meantime, we encourage anyone form the Community to reply.

Hi @thomasmars - Here is the documentation for querying across regions :slight_smile: :

you cannot connect QuickSight to Athena in another region. Instead, you may use the Athena (in the same region with QuickSight) to connect data source in another region. In your case, you need to create Athena and data catalog in the same region with QuickSight
