Long Description:

This Action also works when accessing the web through a PROXY server: Please consult the section 5.1.8.2. for more details on this subject.

 

To be able to use this Action, you need to get these 3 parameters from Google: (1) your “Client ID”, (2) your “Client Secret”, (3) your “Refresh Token”. To get these 3 parameters, you must use the clip0615 “Unlock Google Services” action detailed in section 5.22.11.

 

 
You can get your "Google-Analytics View ID", using the "account explorer" available here:
 

https://ga-dev-tools.appspot.com/account-explorer/

 
 
Scroll down to the bottom of the page: Your “View-ID” is visible here:

If you get the following error message:
 

   "User does not have sufficient permissions for this profile."
 

...this means that your "View ID" is incorrect.

 

 

Some Metrics or Dimensions variables contains a “XX” inside their name. These are “custom” Metrics/Dimensions: Inside these “custom” Metrics/Dimensions, the XX caracters are replaced by the value found in the last column of the table that allows you to select the Metrics/Dimensions to extract (this column is named “XX Parameters”). Let’s take an example:

ga:goal1Starts,                ga:goal4Starts,                ga:goal2Starts.
