Identifying QuickSight analyses/dashboards that use the paginated feature - seeking AWS CLI command and interface distinction

Hello everyone,

I’m working on a QuickSight cost tracking dashboard, and I’m looking to identify analyses and dashboards that use the new “Paginated report” feature. I know that this feature can increase the cost of using QuickSight, so I want to make sure I can identify the analyses that use it and track them appropriately.

Can anyone help me find an AWS CLI command that can help me to list all the analyses/dashboards in my QuickSight account that use the paginated report feature?

Thank you for your help!

Best regards,


There is no single cli command to do this.

You would need to list all dashboards:

Grab the id’s then loop through them and run the describe dashboard definition as that will tell you the type.

It will then be under the sheet content type:

Thanks a lot for your help.

When i try this CLI command :
aws quicksight describe-dashboard-definition --dashboards-id dashboardID --aws-account-id accountID

I have this error:
Invalid choice: ‘describe-dashboard-definition’, maybe you meant:

  • describe-dashboard-permissions

Can you please help me with that ?

Thank again


Are you on the latest CLI version?
