Migrating the dashboards to a new quicksight account

Hi Community,

We want to migrate all the quicksight dashboards to a new AWS account
How can we achieve it

Hi @Vysh27

Could you please give us the context , why would you like to migrate all dashboards to new account ?

Using QuickSight AssetBundle API we can export all the related assets … say by providing Datasource all the dependant datasets & dashboards can be exported in a zip file and can be imported in the new account . Please find more details in the below blog .

We are deleting the current AWS account and we are creating a new account
So we want to migrate the dashboards

I’m new to Cloud Actually
How and where do I use these API’s for exporting the assets?

Hi @Vysh27

Ok I would recommend you to try with some simple QuickSight API’s ( Describe*,List*) first to get know the basics . Was there any issue in the current quicksight account ? hoping we will be able to help to resolve any issues .

Please note all the account level configurations needs to done in the new account as well ( SSO , any VPC setup , QuickSight Users , QuickSight Groups , Permissions ) , better to involve your organization cloud admin as well to ensure all the prerequisites are taken care.

Please find the QuickSight Admin workshop link below
