Connector Specific Configuration Details

  1. Google Ads connector has optional values such as Bronze Schema and Silver Schema

This connector requires establishing a service account with Viewer permissions in order to access reporting data through the Google Analytics 4 API. In general, here are the steps necessary to access GA4 API, followed by a link to the documentation:

  1. In the Google Cloud Console, set up a new project if one does not exist or if the client requires a separate project for the service account.
  2. Enable Google Analytics Admin API and Google Analytics Data API. Note that with your first project creation, many APIs are enabled for that project. Disable any API that you will not be using.
  3. Create credentials for a service account in the Google Cloud project.
  4. Create "Keys" for the credential. Select "JSON" for the key type and save the key file. This is the certificate and should be a closely guarded secret stored in the key vault.
  5. Add the service account email address with "Viewer" access to the desired property/properties in Google Analytics. Note the 9-digit number that identifies the property as that will be needed for the key vault secret.
