Quicksight Embeded session entry point error


While i try to get the user session embed url in quicksight by using the following command

aws quicksight get-session-embed-url --aws-account-id <accound_id> --session-lifetime-in-minutes 600 --entry-point /start/analyses/<analysis_id> --user-arn arn:aws:quicksight:us-east-1 :<accound_id>:user/default/<super_userid> --region us-east-1

I am getting the following error

**An error occurred (InvalidParameterValueException) when calling the GetSessionEmbedUrl operation: Invalid entry point **

And when i am not giving any entry point i am getting the embed url where i can see all dashboards and analysis this is certainly not a permission issue

The error message you are encountering indicates that the provided entry point parameter is invalid. The entry point parameter specifies the starting point within your QuickSight account when generating the session embed URL.

To resolve this issue, you should ensure that you are providing a valid entry point value. The entry point should correspond to a valid resource within your QuickSight account, such as a specific dashboard or analysis.

Here are a few steps you can take to troubleshoot the issue:

  1. Verify the correctness of the entry point parameter: Double-check that the entry point value you are providing is accurate and matches an existing resource in your QuickSight account. Make sure you are using the correct IDs or names for dashboards or analyses.

  2. Check resource permissions: Ensure that the user specified in the user ARN (Amazon Resource Name) has the necessary permissions to access the specified entry point. Confirm that the user has appropriate permissions for the dashboard or analysis you are trying to embed.

  3. Test without specifying an entry point: As you mentioned, when you omit the entry point parameter, you are able to obtain the embed URL and access all dashboards and analyses. This suggests that the issue is related to the entry point configuration. You may need to review the QuickSight documentation or contact AWS support for further assistance in setting up the entry point correctly.

By following these steps, you should be able to troubleshoot the "Invalid entry point" error and successfully retrieve the session embed URL with the desired entry point.
