Help Needed: Embedding QuickSight Dashboard with Executive Summary and Data Story Capabilities

Hello AWS Community,

I’m currently working on embedding an Amazon QuickSight dashboard into my application, and I need some assistance with enabling specific features. I’ve been following the documentation on generating the URL with the authentication code attached, as outlined here: Step 2: Generate the URL with the authentication code attached.

My objective is to embed a QuickSight dashboard with the capabilities of “Executive Summary” and “Data Story”. However, I am unable to find how to enable these features using the available build tools. Specifically, I need to know:

  1. Is it possible to enable and embed a QuickSight dashboard with the “Executive Summary” and “Data Story” features?
  2. If it is possible, what are the exact steps or configurations required to achieve this?
  3. Are there any additional permissions or settings that need to be configured in IAM or QuickSight to allow these features?

Here is a brief overview of what I’ve done so far:

  • Followed the IAM authentication process for embedding QuickSight.
  • Generated the embeddable Q topic URL and Dashboard.
  • Ensured that users are being uniquely provisioned in QuickSight.

Despite these steps, I am unable to find documentation or examples that specifically cover enabling the “Executive Summary” and “Data Story” features within an embedded dashboard.

Any guidance or references to relevant documentation would be greatly appreciated!

Thank you in advance for your help.

Hi @jagimene,

Executive summaries and data stories are not available with embedded dashboards yet.

Hi @David_Wong,

Thank you for your prompt response.

Do you know if there is a roadmap or any future plans for making the Executive Summaries and data stories features available for embedded QuickSight dashboards?
Any information on potential timelines or upcoming updates would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks again for your help!

Hi @jagimene,

Executive summary and data story are new features and usually new features don’t become available in embedded dashboards until a bit later. I don’t have any visibility on the roadmap but we can tag this as a feature request.

Can you please tag this as a feature request?
