What is the Google Analytics StackPack?

The Google Analytics StackPack contains everything you need to import metrics from Google Analytics into StackState. The StackPack supports both the Google Analytics Core Reporting and Real Time Reporting APIs.


NOTE: The Google Analytics StackPack is compatible with version 3 of the Google Analytics reporting API.

Configuring Google Analytics integration

Configuration of the Google Analytics integration is different for the Core Reporting and Real Time Reporting APIs.

The integration determines the API to use based on the metric name. If the metric has the prefix rt: it is considered a real-time metric for which the Real Time Reporting API will be used. If the metric does not have this prefix, the Core Reporting API is used.

Multiple instances can be configured in the YAML file to facilitate multiple metric streams.

Common configuration

The global configuration is defined in the init_config section.
