Find fields used in a analysis

Is there a way to identify which fields are used in a dataset or analysis .

Looking to exclude the fields not used from the dataset

No there is no way to do this currently.

I can mark it as a feature request.

That would be great thanks

Hi @smcintosh - Using AWS QuickSight boto3 API - describe data set, we can get the column list of the data the sets. But you need to parse these information to get the details, please see the documentation link below.

Hi, there’s no direct way of doing this, but you could use the APIs and programatically identify the columns used. You can use the API Sanjeeb listed above, and the describe-analysis-definition API output can be scanned for column names used in an analysis.
You can then match the names. In theory it can be done, but would need to be coded for.
Hope this helps.
