Pdf download and csv export logs

Is there a way we can find out who downloaded what pdf and CSV files from quicksight.


You can get information from cloud watch log. but in QS dashboard no option yet.

Hi @Pruthvi ,

Following details are available in CloudTrail : Logging operations with AWS CloudTrail - Amazon QuickSight
The csv export is available but not for SPICE. If you have for eg Amazon Athena as datasource, the export to csv is logged as well.

"serviceEventDetails": {
    "eventRequestDetails": {
        "dataSourceId": "arn:aws:quicksight:eu-central-1:XXX:datasource/a6daac79-a4ca-401f-b740-27db623756b8",
        "databaseType": "ATHENA",
        "queryId": "b91ba3e6-5653-4c90-97e4-efdb50d358ac",
        "resourceId": "arn:aws:quicksight:eu-central-1:XXX:dashboard/65a4b1f4-0475-4274-b10a-e3d2fd5bcba1",
        "dataSetId": "arn:aws:quicksight:eu-central-1:XXX:dataset/7763e5dd-eae4-4670-854a-14ee73cef4db",
        "dataSetMode": "Query",
        "queryIntent": "EXPORT_TO_CSV"

We currently do not have logging for PDF downloads in CloudTrail.

Kind regards,
