Can I show an error message on dashboard when user enters wrong data in textfield filter in the Controls?

I wanna display error message when user enters wrong data on text filters. Is that feature available on quicksight?

Hi, can you clarify what do you mean by “wrong data”? If it is data not included in the dataset, then it will just output empty result - which is by design.

It is possible to use insight visual to display some text if query result contains no data.
The easiest way to do it is

  • click “Add Insight” in the top left corner
  • select Unique Values from the list of insights and click “Select” to close the dialog.
  • add a field to the “Category” field well
  • select “Customize narrative” option on the visual to display your own message and change the entire expression to something like the image below
