Google Analytics

Hevo replicates data from your Google Analytics account to your data warehouse using Google’s Reporting API. We recommend that you go through the Google Analytics Query Explorer before creating a Pipeline to ensure you configure it the way you require. Read Core Reporting API - Common Queries to know more about the common queries associated with Google’s Reporting API.

For creating Pipelines using this Source, Hevo provides you a fully managed BigQuery data warehouse as a possible Destination. This option remains available till the time you set up your first BigQuery Destination irrespective of any other Destinations that you may have. With the managed warehouse, you are only charged the cost that Hevo incurs for your project in Google BigQuery. The invoice is generated at the end of each month and payment is recovered as per the payment instrument you have set up. You can now create your Pipeline and directly start analyzing your Source data. Read Hevo Managed Google BigQuery.

For all Pipelines created after Release 2.01, Hevo allows you to ingest a combination of prebuilt and custom reports during and post-Pipeline creation, according to your requirements. Refer to section, Configuring Google Analytics as a Source to know how you can ingest these reports.


Source Considerations

  • Hevo is subject to the limits and quotas set on the Core Reporting API. Therefore, ingestion may be deferred due to these limits.

  • You can only select the dimensions that are compatible with the metric you select. Incompatible metrics are greyed out based on the selected dimensions.

  • Even for compatible metric/dimension combinations, an error may be displayed stating that the selected metrics and dimensions cannot be queried together, or that the selected metrics/dimensions are restricted. If the metric/dimension set belongs to Google Adwords, Google Analytics 360, or Google Adsense, this may be due to lack of permissions on the selected view.

    For information on valid metric/dimension combinations, refer to Dimensions and Metrics Explorer.

    For information on different types of errors, refer to Google Analytics Core Reporting API Changelog.
