Google Analytics 4

Last updated on Mar 05, 2024

Google Analytics 4 (GA 4) is the latest version of Google Analytics. It allows in-depth assessment of user experiences across your websites and applications using reports. Each of these websites and apps is referred to as GA 4 property and has a unique tracking ID, which enables the monitoring and analysis of activities associated with the respective property.

Hevo uses the Google Analytics Data API (GA 4) to ingest your GA 4 account data. You must allow Hevo to access data from your Google account to do this.

Source Considerations


  • Hevo does not support the ingestion of cohort dimensions and metrics.

  • Hevo might take more than 24 hours to fetch accurate data for some reports because of the GA 4 data freshness intervals. Therefore, data replication might not be accurate, leading to discrepancies in the Destination. To avoid this, you can add a clause and exclude dimensions with null values while configuring the Source.
