App and website analytics platform hosted by Google

Prerequisites

Before importing data from Google Analytics you or your webmaster will need to have performed some initial setup to grant yourself access to the Google Analytics for your website.

Google Analytics Prerequisites

Data source settings

View ID

Once you have connected with your google account, the View ID drop down will allow you to choose which view you want to get your data from.

Start Date

Providing a start date allows you to set how much historical data you wish to import into you workspace.

This date has to be in the ISO-8601 date format, see the example below.

Format: YYYY-MM-DDTHH:MM:SSZ

Example: 2020-10-01T13:12:11Z

End Date

Providing an end date allows you to limit how much data you wish to import into you workspace.

This date has to be in the ISO-8601 date format, see the example below.

Format: YYYY-MM-DDTHH:MM:SSZ

Example: 2020-10-01T13:12:11Z

Reports

Providing the path to a reports json file allows you to supply the tap with a user defined definition of tables and information you want to sync from Google Analytics.

This does require you to commit a file to your workspace repository so that Google Analytics can find it during run time, and may also break the dbt transforms that are required to have our included datasets work.

For more information on how to define a custom reports file see the Meltano Hub Documentation.
