Great macros!  Using FB macro, but only Page information is there, how to update the macro to include spend, reach, link clicks, impressions, CPC, CTRs, CPMs (I guess those can also be calculated), Website purchases, clicks, views, # of add to carts, # initiate checkouts, and several others?  Tried updating metrics.yxdb, but that didn't work - is Marketing API different than Graph API?

I've been trying interact with my GMail account, I thought I had all the authentication sorted and I don't get any errors in the GoogleOAuth2 macro.


But when I do this: i get a "Login Required" message.


I don't know how to proceed from here, but I'll try a few things 🙂

Thanks a lot for your question. My first questions is – do you get anything out of the OAuth2 tool? I have drafted a workflow (without tokens) that works for me.


Best regards,


Alteryx Partner

This is what I get out of the OAuth2 tool:

I looks right. You probably just need to include the Authorization is the header. See attached:
