Client

class QuickSight.Client

A low-level client representing Amazon QuickSight:

client = session.create_client('quicksight')

These are the available methods:

can_paginate(operation_name)

Check if an operation can be paginated.

Parameters
operation_name (string) -- The operation name. This is the same name as the method name on the client. For example, if the method name is create_foo, and you'd normally invoke the operation as client.create_foo(**kwargs), if the create_foo operation can be paginated, you can use the call client.get_paginator("create_foo").
Returns
True if the operation can be paginated, False otherwise.
create_group(**kwargs)

Creates an Amazon QuickSight group.

The permissions resource is ``arn:aws:quicksight:us-east-1:<relevant-aws-account-id> :group/default/<group-name> `` .
