Google Analytics Connector Offline: No Available Accounts


I have followed the guide "the how to Google Analytics" and I am able to view and pull data from the GA connector Online. However when I use the offline option, same account, by passing the security + access + refresh token. I am unable to successfully login but no accounts are present

Hi @lake 


Are you sure you've generated the secret and token for the right account? That's my best guess.

I am able the application with credentials within the development console.

Hmm, that's puzzling.


If the credentials weren't valid you would be getting an error message:


"Enter valid Google Analytics credentials"


The fact that you're not getting this error message suggest they are valid credentials so the most likely explanation would be that the account doesn't have access to the relevant GA instances.


Google authentication is a nightmare. I hope you manage to figure it out and sorry I couldn't help more!


Hmm.. I am able to see the profiles using the online profile. Is there a different permission needed for the offline? 


Did this ever get resolved?  I'm having the same issue.  I've successfully accomplished this task in the past in another account.


No I haven't are you able to see what the difference is in the two accounts you created. Are they at different permission levels?

This is a really good question.  All I can tell you is that when I first Authorized API, I was prompted to choose an account to continue to Product1.

I went ahead with the configuration of the tool Offline, which worked fine.  When I went back to try it as an Online configuration, I was then prompted to sign in again, this time for AlteryxMacro to be allowed.

So I'm forced to conclude that yes, you do need to give explicit permission for whichever approach you use.


I wanted to augment my prior comment.  It seems to make a difference whether one sets up OAuth for online vs. offline when authorizing the API.

When entering the token into Alteryx, the Offline requires the Refresh token, whereas the Online requires the Access token.  My access token was 129 characters, whereas the refresh token is "only" 45.


I am still having this issue.


Can anyone confirm what the OAuth consent screen inputs should be? This is not covered in the initial documentation, yet it is something I had to set up before I was able to create my Web client.
