Google Analytics 4
Google Analytics 4 is an analytics service that enables you to measure traffic and engagement across your websites. Google Analytics 4 is a new kind of property with different reports than what you're used to seeing in Universal Analytics properties. If your website currently uses a Universal Analytics property you need to switch to Google Analytics.
Remember DataLakeHouse.io securely connects to your Google Analytics account instance by redirecting you to the Google Authorization screen for you to sign in and authenticate your account. DataLakeHouse.io does not capture or store your password/credentials.
Using the form please complete the following basic steps:
- Enter a Name or Alias for this connection, in the 'Name/Alias' field, that is unique from other connectors.
- Enter in the 'Target Schema Prefix' field, a name that will be unique in your data cloud destination where you wish to land the data.
- Click the Authorize Your Account button which will transport you to the Google login, where you will login with your account credentials. Once your credentials are accepted and you allow DataLakeHouse.io to access your data, you will be automatically redirected back to this DataLakeHouse.io portal and you should be able to see a successful connection.
Historical Sync Instructions
By default, DataLakeHouse.io will try to pull all time data from your account.
If you want DataLakeHouse.io to pull data from a specific date then you can set the Historical Load Start Date using the following steps:
- In the saved connection area, click the Options tab.
- Find the Historical Load Start Date section and set the date you want to sync the data from.
If any issues occur with the Google login/authorization, simply return to the sources page in DataLakeHouse.io, edit this source and click the 'Authorize Your Account' or 'Re-Authorize Your Account' button. If any issues persist please contact our support team via the DataLakeHouse Support Portal.
