Hi Sudhir

Is this in the Matillion ETL for BigQuery product? If so, the Google Analytics Component isn’t included as Google provide a native way to pull Analytics data into BigQuery:

If this is with another product, please can you provide us with further details?

Thanks
Laura

They provide native way for only Premium customers.

This feature is only available in Google Analytics 360, part of the Google Analytics 360 Suite.

Is it possible to use matillion to integrate with Google Analytics non Premium account?

Hi Sudhir,

With Matillion ETL for BigQuery we are not legally able to do this, sorry, because it would be effectively creating a backdoor to bypass Google’s own internal mechanisms.

Best regards,

That is not true. You can use their API to build your components.

Hi Sudhir,

You’re right about the availability of APIs, so let me rephrase and clarify: we’re not permitted to go out of our way to build shortcuts which circumvent Google’s own mechanisms, which they would prefer their customers to use. If Google didn’t want people using those APIs then they’d just remove them. But there are advantages to Google’s alternatives in terms of ease of use (and perhaps functionality?) which is presumably why they charge.

Best regards,
Ian

I am not following your explanation why you couldn't use APIs. A simple response that you don't have this functionality would suffice. Anyways, we will look somewhere else for our needs.
