We have modified the connector setup tests. We now validate your BigQuery dataset permissions and Google Cloud Storage bucket permissions in two different steps. Previously, we validated the service account’s permissions on the dataset and the bucket permissions in a single step.
We now sync the
INTRADAY table as well as the
FINAL table. Since the
INTRADAY table contains data from the current day, you no longer need to wait a day to see your latest data. We sync the complete
INTRADAY table whenever it is updated because we can’t de-duplicate the newly appended data. However, we do not sync the
INTRADAY table if it contains more than four gigabytes (4GB) of data to avoid long syncs that could distrupt your sync schedule. For more information, see Google Analytics’ Help documentation.
You can now configure your Google Analytics 360 connector using the Fivetran REST API. This feature is in BETA and is available only for Standard and Enterprise accounts.
The Google Analytics 360 connector now supports priority-first sync. Priority-first syncs fetch your most recent data first so that it’s quickly ready for you to use. Google Analytics 360’s priority-first syncs fetch the most recent 15 days of data from all tables.
To learn more, see our priority-first sync documentation.
To improve sync speed for large datasets, we have implemented a method of syncing using a storage bucket. We have added the new field
bucket_name to the connector setup form. To take advantage of this improvement you need to:
1. Create a bucket. 2. Give its IAM account `storage object admin` permission. 3. Enter its name in `bucket_name` in the setup form.
Google Analytics 360 provides the tools and support that enterprise teams need to get actionable insights from their data.
