Chartio user permissions needed for Amazon Athena sources

Data Sources

In order to grant Chartio the proper read permissions required to connect to an Athena datasource you will need to create a new user and new policy in IAM.

  1. Create a new user that has programmatic access to Chartio
  2. Assign this user the ‘AWSQuicksightAthenaAccess’ policy (this gives the user access to Athena).
  3. Create a new policy in IAM to allow the Chartio user access to the specific buckets that contain your data. You will need to give List->HeadBucket, List->ListBucket, and Read-GetObject for the specific buckets and all objects in the buckets.
  4. Assign this new policy to the Chartio user you created.
