google-analytics-api Reporting API (Analytics v4) Single report Example using Oauth2 C#


Example

This example uses the official Google .net Client library.

PM> Install-Package Google.Apis.AnalyticsReporting.v4

Authorization Requires one of the following OAuth scopes:

Oauth2

// These are the scopes of permissions you need.
string[] scopes = new string[] { AnalyticsReportingService.Scope.AnalyticsReadonly };   // View your Google Analytics Data

UserCredential credential;
using (var stream = new FileStream(clientSecretJson, FileMode.Open, FileAccess.Read))
{
    string credPath = System.Environment.GetFolderPath(System.Environment.SpecialFolder.Personal);
    credPath = Path.Combine(credPath, ".credentials/", System.Reflection.Assembly.GetExecutingAssembly().GetName().Name);

    // Requesting Authentication or loading previously stored authentication for userName
   credential = GoogleWebAuthorizationBroker.AuthorizeAsync(GoogleClientSecrets.Load(stream).Secrets,
       scopes,
      userName,
      CancellationToken.None,
      new FileDataStore(credPath, true)).Result;
}

// Create Reporting API service.
var service = new AnalyticsReportingService(new BaseClientService.Initializer()
            {
             HttpClientInitializer = credential,
             ApplicationName = string.Format("{0} Authentication", System.Reflection.Assembly.GetExecutingAssembly().GetName().Name),
            });

Reporting Request

// Create the DateRange object.
DateRange June2015 = new DateRange() { StartDate = "2015-01-01", EndDate = "2015-06-30" };
DateRange June2016 = new DateRange() { StartDate = "2016-01-01", EndDate = "2016-06-30" };
List<DateRange> dateRanges = new List<DateRange>() { June2016, June2015 };           
                       

// Create the ReportRequest object.
// This should have a large number of rows
ReportRequest reportRequest = new ReportRequest
{
    ViewId = ConfigurationManager.AppSettings["GoogleAnaltyicsViewId"],
    DateRanges = dateRanges,
    Dimensions = new List<Dimension>() { new Dimension() { Name = "ga:date" }, new Dimension() { Name = "ga:usertype" } },
    Metrics = new List<Metric>() { new Metric() { Expression= "ga:users" }, new Metric() { Expression = "ga:sessions" } },
    PageSize = 1000,
};
            
List<ReportRequest> requests = new List<ReportRequest>();
requests.Add(reportRequest);


var getReport = new GetReportsRequest() { ReportRequests = requests };
var response = service.Reports.BatchGet(getReport).Execute();
