Create a report

This guide explains how to create a basic report for your Analytics data using the Google Analytics Data API v1. Reports from the Data API v1 are similar to the reports you can generate in the Reports section of the Google Analytics UI.

This guide covers core reporting, the general reporting feature of the Data API. The Data API v1 also has specialized Realtime reporting and Funnel reporting.

runReport is the recommended method for queries, and is used in all examples throughout this guide. See advanced features for an overview of other core reporting methods. Try the Query Explorer to test your queries.

Reports overview

Reports are tables of event data for a Google Analytics 4 property. Each report table has the dimensions and metrics requested in your query, with data in individual rows.

Use filters to return only rows matching a certain condition, and pagination to navigate through results.

Here's a sample report table that shows one dimension (Country) and one metric (activeUsers):

Country Active Users
Japan 2541
France 12

Specify a data source

Every runReport request requires you to specify a Google Analytics 4 property ID. The Analytics property you specify is used as the dataset for that query. Here's an example:

POST https://analyticsdata.googleapis.com/v1beta/properties/GA4_PROPERTY_ID:runReport

The response from this request includes only data from the Analytics property you specify as the GA4_PROPERTY_ID.

If you use the Data API client libraries, specify the data source in the property parameter, in the form of properties/GA4_PROPERTY_ID. See the quick start guide for examples of using the client libraries.

See Send Measurement Protocol events to Google Analytics if you want to include Measurement Protocol events in your reports.

Generate a report

To generate a report, construct a RunReportRequest object. We recommend starting with the following parameters:

  • A valid entry in the dateRanges field.
  • At least one valid entry in the dimensions field.
  • At least one valid entry in the metrics field.

Here's a sample request with the recommended fields:

HTTP

POST https://analyticsdata.googleapis.com/v1beta/properties/GA4_PROPERTY_ID:runReport
  {
    "dateRanges": [{ "startDate": "2023-09-01"", "endDate": "2023-09-15" }],
    "dimensions": [{ "name": "country" }],
    "metrics": [{ "name": "activeUsers" }]
  }

Query for metrics

Metrics are the quantitative measurements of your event data. You must specify at least one metric in your runReport requests.

See API Metrics for a full list of metrics you can query.

Here's a sample request that shows three metrics, grouped by the dimension date:

HTTP

POST https://analyticsdata.googleapis.com/v1beta/properties/GA4_PROPERTY_ID:runReport

Read the response

The report response contains a header and rows of data. The header consists of DimensionHeaders and MetricHeaders, which list the columns in the report. Each row consists of DimensionValues and MetricValues. The order of the columns is consistent in the request, header, and rows.

Here's a sample response for the previous sample request:

{
  "dimensionHeaders": [
    {
      "name": "country"
    }
  ],
  "metricHeaders": [
    {
      "name": "activeUsers",
      "type": "TYPE_INTEGER"
    }
  ],
  "rows": [
    {
      "dimensionValues": [
        {
          "value": "Japan"
        }
      ],
      "metricValues": [
        {
          "value": "2541"
        }
      ]
    },
    {
      "dimensionValues": [
        {
          "value": "France"
        }
      ],
      "metricValues": [
        {
          "value": "12"
        }
      ]
    }
  ],
  "metadata": {},
  "rowCount": 2
}

Group and filter data

Dimensions are qualitative attributes you can use to group and filter your data. For example, the city dimension indicates the city, like Paris or New York, where each event originated. Dimensions are optional for runReport requests, and you can use up to nine dimensions per request.

See the API dimensions for a full list of the dimensions you can use to group and filter your data.

Group

Here's a sample request that groups active users into three dimensions:

HTTP

POST https://analyticsdata.googleapis.com/v1beta/properties/GA4_PROPERTY_ID:runReport
  {
    "dateRanges": [{ "startDate": "7daysAgo", "endDate": "yesterday" }],
    "dimensions": [
      {
        "name": "country"
      },
      {

      {
        "name": "city"
      }

Here's another FilterExpression example, where andGroup includes only data that meets all criteria in the expressions list. This dimensionFilter selects for when both browser is Chrome and countryId is US:

Navigate long reports

By default, the report contains only the first 10,000 rows of event data. To view up to 1000,000 rows in the report, you can include "limit": 100000 in the RunReportRequest.

For reports with more than 100,000 rows, you have to send a series of requests and page through the results. For example, here's a request for the first 100,000 rows:

HTTP

POST https://analyticsdata.googleapis.com/v1beta/properties/GA4_PROPERTY_ID:runReport
  {
    ...
    "limit": 100000,
    "offset": 0

Python

    request = RunReportRequest(
        property=f"properties/{property_id}",
        date_ranges=[DateRange(start_date="365daysAgo", end_date="yesterday")],
        dimensions=[
            Dimension(name="firstUserSource"),
            Dimension(name="firstUserMedium"),
            Dimension(name="firstUserCampaignName"),
        ],
        metrics=[
            Metric(name="sessions"),
            Metric(name="conversions"),
            Metric(name="totalRevenue"),
        ],
        limit=100000,
        offset=0,
    )
    response = client.run_report(request)

The rowCount parameter in the response indicates the total number of rows, independent of the limit and offset values in the request. For example, if the response shows "rowCount": 272345, you need three requests of 100,000 rows each to retrieve all the data.

Here's a sample request for the next 100,000 rows. All other parameters, such as dateRange, dimensions, and metrics should be the same as the first request.

HTTP

POST https://analyticsdata.googleapis.com/v1beta/properties/GA4_PROPERTY_ID:runReport
  {
    ...
    "limit": 100000,
    "offset": 100000
  }

Java

      request =
          RunReportRequest.newBuilder()
              .setProperty("properties/" + propertyId)
              .addDateRanges(
                  DateRange.newBuilder().setStartDate("365daysAgo").setEndDate("yesterday"))
              .addDimensions(Dimension.newBuilder().setName("firstUserSource"))
              .addDimensions(Dimension.newBuilder().setName("firstUserMedium"))
              .addDimensions(Dimension.newBuilder().setName("firstUserCampaignName"))
              .addMetrics(Metric.newBuilder().setName("sessions"))
              .addMetrics(Metric.newBuilder().setName("conversions"))
              .addMetrics(Metric.newBuilder().setName("totalRevenue"))
              .setLimit(100000)
              .setOffset(100000)
              .build();

      // Make the request.
      response = analyticsData.runReport(request);
      // Prints the response using a method in RunReportSample.java
      RunReportSample.printRunResponseResponse(response);

Python

    request = RunReportRequest(
        property=f"properties/{property_id}",
        date_ranges=[DateRange(start_date="365daysAgo", end_date="yesterday")],
        dimensions=[
            Dimension(name="firstUserSource"),
            Dimension(name="firstUserMedium"),
            Dimension(name="firstUserCampaignName"),
        ],
        metrics=[
            Metric(name="sessions"),
            Metric(name="conversions"),
            Metric(name="totalRevenue"),
        ],
        limit=100000,
        offset=100000,
    )
    response = client.run_report(request)

You can use offset values, for example 200000 or 300000, to retrieve subsequent results. All other parameters such as dateRange, dimensions, and metrics should be the same as the first request.

Use multiple date ranges

One report request can retrieve data for multiple dateRanges. For example, this report compares the first two weeks for August in 2022 and 2023:

HTTP

POST https://analyticsdata.googleapis.com/v1beta/properties/GA4_PROPERTY_ID:runReport
  {
    "dateRanges": [
      {
        "startDate": "2022-08-01",
        "endDate": "2022-08-14"
      },
      {
        "startDate": "2023-08-01",
        "endDate": "2023-08-14"
      }
    ],
    "dimensions": [{ "name": "platform" }],
    "metrics": [{ "name": "activeUsers" }]
  }

When you include multiple dateRanges in a request, a dateRange column is automatically added to the response. When the dateRange column is date_range_0, that row's data is for the first date range. When the dateRange column is date_range_1, that row's data is for the second date range.

Here's a sample response for two date ranges:

{
  "dimensionHeaders": [
    {
      "name": "platform"
    },
    {
      "name": "dateRange"
    }
  ],
  "metricHeaders": [
    {
      "name": "activeUsers",
      "type": "TYPE_INTEGER"
    }
  ],
  "rows": [
    {
      "dimensionValues": [
        {
          "value": "iOS"
        },
        {
          "value": "date_range_0"
        }
      ],
      "metricValues": [
        {
          "value": "774"
        }
      ]
    },
    {
      "dimensionValues": [
        {
          "value": "Android"
        },
        {
          "value": "date_range_1"
        }
      ],
      "metricValues": [
