Amazon Athena now supports user identities for data access and audit

Amazon Athena now supports trusted identity propagation with AWS IAM Identity Center to manage and audit access to data and resources based on user identity. This new capability passes identity information between connected business intelligence and data analytics applications, providing data analysts with a seamless single sign-on experience and admins with end-to-end data access traceability. Administrators define access via AWS Lake Formation to their data sets in Glue Data Catalog based on a common set of users and groups in the customer’s chosen identity provider. Auditors can track users’ data access across their Athena query workflows.
