Amazon QuickSight Embedding SDK

 
Thank you for using the Amazon QuickSight JavaScript SDK. You can use this SDK to embed Amazon QuickSight in your HTML.

For more information and to learn how to use QuickSight Embedding, please visit QuickSight Developer Portal Website

Amazon QuickSight offers four different embedding experiences with options for user isolation with namespaces, and custom UI permissions.

 

Installation

 

Option 1: Use the Amazon QuickSight Embedding SDK in the browser:

...
<script src="https://unpkg.com/amazon-quicksight-embedding-sdk@2.7.0/dist/quicksight-embedding-js-sdk.min.js"></script>
<script type="text/javascript">
    const onLoad = async () => {
        const embeddingContext = await QuickSightEmbedding.createEmbeddingContext();
        //...
    };
</script>
...
<body onload="onLoad()">
...

Option 2: Install the Amazon QuickSight Embedding SDK in NodeJs:

npm install amazon-quicksight-embedding-sdk

and then use it in your code using require syntax

const QuickSightEmbedding = require("amazon-quicksight-embedding-sdk");

const embeddingContext = await QuickSightEmbedding.createEmbeddingContext();

or, using named import syntax:

import { createEmbeddingContext } from 'amazon-quicksight-embedding-sdk';

const embeddingContext = await createEmbeddingContext();

or, using wildcard import syntax:

import * as QuickSightEmbedding from 'amazon-quicksight-embedding-sdk';

const embeddingContext = await QuickSightEmbedding.createEmbeddingContext();

 

Creating the Embedding Context

 

Use createEmbeddingContext method to create an embedding context. It returns a promise of EmbeddingContext type.

export type CreateEmbeddingContext = (frameOptions?: EmbeddingContextFrameOptions) => Promise<EmbeddingContext>

export type EventListener = (
        event: EmbeddingEvents,
        metadata?: ExperienceFrameMetadata
) => void;

export type EmbeddingContextFrameOptions = {
   onChange?: EventListener;
};

export type IEmbeddingContext = {
   embedDashboard: (frameOptions: FrameOptions, contentOptions?: DashboardContentOptions) => Promise<DashboardExperience>;
   embedVisual: (frameOptions: FrameOptions, contentOptions?: VisualContentOptions) => Promise<VisualExperience>;
   embedConsole: (frameOptions: FrameOptions, contentOptions?: ConsoleContentOptions) => Promise<ConsoleExperience>;
   embedQSearchBar: (frameOptions: FrameOptions, contentOptions?: QSearchContentOptions) => Promise<QSearchExperience>;
   embedGenerativeQnA: (frameOptions: FrameOptions, contentOptions?: GenerativeQnAContentOptions) => Promise<GenerativeQnAContentOptions>;
};

You can create the embedding context by calling createEmbeddingContext method without any arguments

import { createEmbeddingContext } from 'amazon-quicksight-embedding-sdk';

const embeddingContext: EmbeddingContext = await createEmbeddingContext();

or, you can pass an object argument with onChange property

import { createEmbeddingContext } from 'amazon-quicksight-embedding-sdk';

const embeddingContext: EmbeddingContext = await createEmbeddingContext({
    onChange: (changeEvent) => {
        console.log('Context received a change', changeEvent);
    },
});

The embedding context creates an additional zero-pixel iframe and appends it into the body element on the page to centralize communication between the SDK and the embedded QuickSight content.

 

Embedding the Amazon QuickSight Experiences

 

An EmbeddingContext instance exposes 4 experience methods

  • embedDashboard
  • embedVisual
  • embedConsole
  • embedQSearchBar
  • embedGenerativeQnA

These methods take 2 parameters:

  • frameOptions (required)
  • contentOptions (optional)

 

Example

 

import { createEmbeddingContext } from 'amazon-quicksight-embedding-sdk';

const embeddingContext = await createEmbeddingContext();

const {
    embedDashboard,
    embedVisual,
    embedConsole,
    embedQSearchBar,
} = embeddingContext;

const frameOptions = {
    //...
};
const contentOptions = {
    //...
};

// Embedding a dashboard experience
const embeddedDashboardExperience = await embedDashboard(frameOptions, contentOptions);

// Embedding a visual experience
const embeddedVisualExperience = await embedVisual(frameOptions, contentOptions);

// Embedding a console experience
const embeddedConsoleExperience = await embedConsole(frameOptions, contentOptions);

// Embedding a Q search bar experience
const embeddedQSearchExperience = await embedQSearchBar(frameOptions, contentOptions);

 

Common Properties of frameOptions for All Embedding Experiences

 

🔹 url: string (required)

This is the embed URL you have generated using the QuickSight API Operations for Embedding.

Follow Embedding with the QuickSight API in the Amazon QuickSight User Guide to generate the url.

For each experience, you need to make sure that the users are granted the necessary permissions to view the embedded experience.

🔹 container: string | HTMLElement (required)

This is the parent HTMLElement where we're going to embed QuickSight.

It can be an HTMLElement:

    container: document.getElementById("experience-container")

Or, it can be a query selector string:

    container: "#experience-container"

🔹 width: string (optional, default='100%'),

You can set width for the iframe that holds your embedded QuickSight experience. You can set it to be a fixed value:

    width: "1000px"

Or, a relative value:

    width: "60%"

To make your embedded QuickSight experience responsive, don't set it (leave them at the default: 100%). Then you can make the container HTMLElement responsive to screen size change.

🔹 height: string (optional, default='100%')

You can set height for the iframe that holds your embedded QuickSight experience. You can set it to be a fixed value:

    height: "700px"

Or, a relative value:

    height: "80%"

To make your embedded QuickSight experience responsive, don't set it (leave them at the default: 100%). Then you can make the container HTMLElement responsive to screen size change.

🔹 className: string (optional)

You can customize style of the iframe that holds your embedded experience by one of the followings:

  • Option 1: Use the "quicksight-embedding-iframe" class we predefined for you:
.quicksight-embedding-iframe {
    margin: 5px;
}
  • Option 2: Or, create your own class and pass in through className property:
.your-own-class {
    margin: 5px;
}
    const option = { className: "your-own-class" }

We've overridden the border and padding of the iframe to be 0px, because setting border and padding on the iframe might cause unexpected issues. If you have to set border and padding on the embedded QuickSight session, set it on the container div that contains the iframe.

🔹 withIframePlaceholder: boolean (optional, default=false)

It renders a simple spinner in the embedded experience container while the contents of the embedding experience iframe is being loaded.

🔹 onChange: EventListener (optional)

This callback is invoked when there is a change in the SDK code status.

export type EventListener = (event: EmbeddingEvents, metadata?: ExperienceFrameMetadata) => void;

export interface ChangeEvent {
    eventName: EventName,
    eventLevel: ChangeEventLevel,
    message?: EventMessageValue,
    data?: EventData
}

export type ExperienceFrameMetadata = {
    frame: EmbeddingIFrameElement | null;
};

    },
};

 

Common Properties of contentOptions for All Embedding Experiences

 

🔹 locale: string (optional) (not available in QSearchBar embedding)

You can set locale for the embedded QuickSight session:

    const option = { locale: "en-US" }; 

Available locale options are:

en-US (English),
da-DK (Dansk)
de-DE (Deutsch),
ja-JP (日本語),
es-ES (Español),
fr-FR (Français),
it-IT (Italiano),

zh-TW (中文 (繁體))

For a more updated list of locales, please refer to https://docs.aws.amazon.com/quicksight/latest/user/choosing-a-language-in-quicksight.html. Any unsupported locale value will fallback to using en-US.

🔹 onMessage: EventListener (optional)

You can add onMessage callback into the contentOptions of all embedding experiences.

export type EventListener = (event: EmbeddingEvents, metadata?: ExperienceFrameMetadata) => void;

export interface SimpleMessageEvent {
   eventName: EventName;
   message?: EventMessageValue;
   data?: EventData;
   eventTarget?: InternalExperiences;
}

export type ExperienceFrameMetadata = {
    frame: EmbeddingIFrameElement | null;
};

See the experience specific documentation below for the supported eventNames for each experience type.

const contentOptions = {
    //...
    onMessage: async (messageEvent: EmbeddingEvents, metadata?: ExperienceFrameMetadata) => {
        switch (messageEvent.eventName) {
            case 'CONTENT_LOADED': {
                console.log("Do something when the embedded experience is fully loaded.");
                break;
            }
            case 'ERROR_OCCURRED': {
                console.log("Do something when the embedded experience fails loading.");
                break;
            }
            //...
        }
    }
};

frameOptions

 

See Common Properties of frameOptions for All Embedding Experiences for url, container, width, height, className, withIframePlaceholder, onChange properties

 

resizeHeightOnSizeChangedEvent: boolean (optional, default: false)

Use resizeHeightOnSizeChangedEvent to allow changing the iframe height when the height of the embedded content changed.

    {
        "height": "300px",
        "resizeHeightOnSizeChangedEvent": true
}

When the resizeHeightOnSizeChangedEvent property is set to true, the value of the height property acts as a loading height.

Note: With the resizeHeightOnSizeChangedEvent set to true, modals generated by the dashboard can be hidden if the content is larger than the screen. An example of this type of modal is the one that displays when you select "Export to CSV" on a Table visual. To solve this issue, you can add the following code to autoscroll the focus to the modal.

const contentOptions = {
    //...
    onMessage: (messageEvent, metadata) => {
        switch (messageEvent.eventName) {
            case 'MODAL_OPENED': {
                window.scrollTo({
                    top: 0 // iframe top position
                });
                break;
            }
            //...
        }
    },
}

 

contentOptions

 

See Common Properties of contentOptions for All Embedding Experiences for locale property

 

🔹 parameters: Parameter[] (optional)

It allows you to set initial parameter values for your embedded QuickSight dashboard. Pass an array as value for multi-value parameters. For more information about parameters in Amazon QuickSight, see https://docs.aws.amazon.com/quicksight/latest/user/parameters-in-quicksight.html

🔹 toolbarOptions

If sub-properties of the toolbarOptions are set to false, then the navrbar is hidden.

     🔹 export: boolean (optional, default=false)

This can be used to show or hide export icon for dashboard embedding.

     🔹 undoRedo: boolean (optional, default=false)

Actions

 

🔹 setParameters: (parameters: Parameter[]) => Promise<ResponseMessage>;

Use this function to update parameter values. Pass an array as value for multi-value parameters. You can build your own UI to trigger this, so that viewers of the embedded QuickSight session can control it from your app page.

Parameters in an embedded experience session can be set by using the following call:

    embeddedExperience.setParameters([
        {

frameOptions

 

See Common Properties of frameOptions for All Embedding Experiences for url, container, width, height, className, withIframePlaceholder, onChange properties

 

resizeHeightOnSizeChangedEvent: boolean (optional, default: false)

Use resizeHeightOnSizeChangedEvent to allow changing the iframe height when the height of the embedded content changed.

    {
        "height": "300px",
        "resizeHeightOnSizeChangedEvent": true
    }

When the resizeHeightOnSizeChangedEvent property is set to true, the value of the height property acts as a loading height.

 

contentOptions

 

See Common Properties of contentOptions for All Embedding Experiences for locale and parameters properties

🔹 parameters: Parameter[] (optional)

It allows you to set initial parameter values for your embedded QuickSight visual. Pass an array as value for multi-value parameters. For more information about parameters in Amazon QuickSight, see https://docs.aws.amazon.com/quicksight/latest/user/parameters-in-quicksight.html

🔹 fitToIframeWidth: boolean (optional, default=true)

If this is set to false, the visual keeps its dimensions as it was designed within its dashboard layout. Otherwise, it adjusts its width to match the iframe's width, while maintaining the original aspect ratio.

The observed behavior of the fitToIframeWidth property varies depending on the layout setting of the underlying dashboard that the visual is a part of:

In Tiled and Free-form layouts, the width is fixed. When the fitToIframeWidth property is toggled, the width changes between fixed width and full iframe width.

In Classic layout, the width is responsive. Since the visual already fits to the width of the iframe, it remains full iframe width even when the fitToIframeWidth property is set to false.

🔹 onMessage: SimpleMessageEventHandler (optional)

The eventNames the visual experience receives

CONTENT_LOADED: Received when the visuals of the Amazon QuickSight dashboard are fully loaded
ERROR_OCCURRED: Received when an error occurred while rendering the Amazon QuickSight visual. The message contains `errorCode`. The error codes are:
- `Forbidden` -- the URL's authentication code expired
- `Unauthorized` -- the session obtained from the authentication code expired
If you follow the instructions to generate the correct URL, but you still receive these error codes, you need to generate a new URL.
PARAMETERS_CHANGED: Received when the parameters in Amazon QuickSight dashboard changes.
SIZE_CHANGED: Received when the size of the Amazon QuickSight dashboard changes.

 

Actions

 

🔹 setParameters: (parameters: Parameter[]) => Promise<ResponseMessage>;

Use this function to update parameter values. Pass an array as value for multi-value parameters. You can build your own UI to trigger this, so that viewers of the embedded QuickSight session can control it from your app page.

Parameters in an embedded experience session can be set by using the following call:

    embeddedVisualExperience.setParameters([
        {
            Name: 'country',
            Values: ['United States'],
        },
        {
            Name: 'states',
            Values: ['California', 'Washington'],
        }
    ]);

To reset a parameter so that it includes all values, you can pass the string ALL_VALUES.

    embeddedVisualExperience.setParameters([
        {
            Name: 'states',
            Values: ['ALL_VALUES'],
        }
    ]);

🔹 getActions () => Promise<VisualAction[]>

If you want to get the list of actions of the visual, use the below method:

    embeddedVisualExperience.getVisualActions();

🔹 addActions (actions: VisualAction[]) => Promise<ResponseMessage>

If you want to add actions to the visual, use the below method:

    embeddedVisualExperience.addActions([
        {
            Name: '<NEW_ACTION_NAME>',
            CustomActionId: `<NEW_ACTION_ID>`,
            Status: 'ENABLED',
            Trigger: 'DATA_POINT_CLICK', // or 'DATA_POINT_MENU'
            ActionOperations: [{
                CallbackOperation: {
                    EmbeddingMessage: {}
                }
            }]
        }
    ]);

This method appends the new actions provided in the request to the existing actions of the visual

🔹 removeActions (actions: VisualAction[]) => Promise<ResponseMessage>

If you want to remove actions from the visual, use the below method:

    embeddedVisualExperience.removeActions([

Console Embedding

 

Console embedding provides the QuickSight authoring experience.

For more information, see Embedding the Amazon QuickSight Console

Embedded authoring experience allows the user to create QuickSight assets, just like they can in the AWS console for QuickSight. Exactly what the user can do in the console is controlled by a custom permission profile. The profile can remove abilities such as creating or updating data sources and datasets. You can set also the default visual type. Embedded consoles currently don't support screen scaling in formatting options.

 

Getting Started

 

Use embedConsole method to embed a QuickSight console. It returns a promise of ConsoleExperience type.

 export class ConsoleExperience extends BaseExperience<ConsoleContentOptions, InternalConsoleExperience, IConsoleExperience, TransformedConsoleContentOptions, ConsoleExperienceFrame> {
   send: <EMV extends EventMessageValues = EventMessageValues>(messageEvent: TargetedMessageEvent) => Promise<ResponseMessage<EMV>>;
}

frameOptions

 

See Common Properties of frameOptions for All Embedding Experiences for url, container, width, height, className, withIframePlaceholder, onChange properties

Note for Q search bar embedding, you'll likely want to use className to give the iframe a position: absolute so that when expanded it does not shift the contents of your application. If elements in your application are appearing in front of the Q search bar, you can provide the iframe with a higher z-index as well.

 

contentOptions

 

🔹 hideTopicName: boolean (optional, default=false)

The hideTopicName property can be used to customize whether or not the QuickSight Q Topic name appears in the embedded search bar.

🔹 theme: string (optional)

The theme property can be used to set a content theme for the embedded search bar. Note that the embedded QuickSight user, or the group or namespace they belong to, must have permissions on this theme. The default theme is the default QuickSight theme seen in the console application.

🔹 allowTopicSelection: boolean (optional)

The allowTopicSelection property can be used to customize whether or not the embedded user can change the selected topic for the Q search bar. Note that this can only be set to false if the initialTopicId was specified in the embedding API; for more information, see QuickSight Embedding APIs. The default value is true.

🔹 onMessage: SimpleMessageEventHandler (optional)

The eventNames the Q search bar experience receives

Q_SEARCH_CLOSED: Received when the Q search collapsed
Q_SEARCH_ENTERED_FULLSCREEN: Received when the Q search entered fullscreen
Q_SEARCH_EXITED_FULLSCREEN: Received when the Q search exited fullscreen
Q_SEARCH_OPENED: Received when the Q search expanded
Q_SEARCH_SIZE_CHANGED: Received when the size of the Q search changed

 

Actions

 

🔹 setQuestion

This method sends a question to the Q search bar and immediately queries the question. It also automatically opens the Q popover.

    embeddedQBarExperience.setQuestion('show me monthly revenue');

🔹 close

This method closes the Q popover, returns the iframe to the original Q search bar size.

    embeddedQBarExperience.close();

 

Generative Q&A Embedding

 

Generative Q&A Embedding provides the Amazon Q in QuickSight Generative Q&A experience.

For more information, see Embed Generative Q&A Experience in the Amazon QuickSight User Guide.

 

Getting Started

 

Use embedGenerativeQnA method to embed the Generative Q&A experience. It returns a promise of GenerativeQnAExperience type.

export class GenerativeQnAExperience extends BaseExperience<GenerativeQnAContentOptions, InternalGenerativeQnAExperience, IGenerativeQnAExperience, TransformedGenerativeQnAContentOptions, GenerativeQnAExperienceFrame> {
   close: () => Promise<SuccessResponseMessage | ErrorResponseMessage>;
   setQuestion: (question: string) => Promise<SuccessResponseMessage | ErrorResponseMessage>;
}

Troubleshooting

 

  1. Make sure the URL you provide in options is not encoded. You should avoid using an encoded URL because it breaks the authcode in the URL by changing it. Also, check that the URL sent in the response from the server side is not encoded.
  2. The URL only works if it used with the authcode it came with. The URL and authcode need to be used together. They expire after five minutes, so it's worth checking that you're not troubleshooting an expired combination of URL and authcode.
  3. Some browsers (e.g. mobile safari) have default setting to "Always Block Cookies". Change the setting to either "Allow form Websites I Visit" or "Always Allow".
  4. Q search bar troubleshooting:
    • Shifting page contents in unwanted way - try giving the embedding container and the iframe class a style with position absolute.
    • Clicking on some parts of your application does not close the Q search bar - listen to the Q_SEARCH_OPENED and Q_SEARCH_CLOSED messages to create a backdrop/element on the page that's always clickable so that the document listener can properly close the search bar.
