Raw Data Report

This pipeline can be used to request and retrieve raw data reports from the Google Analytics 4 API. You may also use filters to return rows matching certain conditions.

Not all dimensions and metrics can be queried together. Only certain dimensions and metrics can be used together to create valid combinations. Our connector setup form will ensure combinations are valid. However, checking yourself beforehand will avoid any surprises.

Use these Google resources to pick your metrics and dimensions:

  1. Review dimension or metric description with Dimensions & Metrics Explorer.

  2. Use the GA4 Query Explorer to review the report yielded by a given combination of dimensions and metrics.

Data Pipelines Details

Data Pipeline

Select Raw Data Report from the dropdown


Select one or more accounts from the drop-down

All accounts which your credentials have access to should be available here. If they are not, please check the credentials selected / configured by you. While you can add multiple accounts, the table size may become too large and so it is advisable to add one account per pipeline and use Union queries in the data warehouse to join the data for consumption

An account can have one or more properties. Select the desired property as per the requirement.

Dimensions and Metrics

Select the dimensions and metrics you would like to fetch from the Google Analytics platform. You can click on View Schema anytime to see the schema of the table being created.For more details about dimensions and metrics go here

Each of the selected dimension / metric will create one or more columns in the database table in the destination warehouse.

Dataset & Name

Dataset Name

Special characters (except underscore _) and blank spaces are not allowed. It is best to follow a consistent naming scheme for future search to locate the tables.

Dataset Description

Enter a short description (optional) describing the dataset being fetched by this particular pipeline.


Choose the events for which you’d like to be notified: whether "ERROR ONLY" or "ERROR AND SUCCESS".

Once you have finished click on Finish to save it. Read more about naming and saving your pipelines including the option to save them as templates here
