The Analytics Management API allows programmatic access to the Google Analytics configuration data. Use Domo's Google Analytics Management Connector to generate reports to list all Account, Property and View (Profile) information for a user, or determine which goals are active, and to access their configured names. A Google Analytics Account is organized into several levels and the Management API Connector provides a way of interacting with the entities at each level. To learn more about the Google Analytics Management API, visit https://developers.google.com/analytics/devguides/config/mgmt/v3.

The Domo Google Analytics Management connector uses OAuth to connect, so there is no need to enter credentials within Domo. Click Connect (or select Add Account if you have existing Google accounts in Domo) to open the Google OAuth screen where you can enter your Google credentials. Once you have entered valid Google credentials, you can use the same account any time you go to create a new Google Analytics Management DataSet. You can manage connector accounts in the Accounts tab in the Data Center. For more information about this tab, see Managing User Accounts for Connectors.
This pane contains a primary Reports menu, along with various other menus which may or may not appear depending on the report type you select.
