After going through validating events, you'll want to verify your implementation. The validation server validates that your events have the correct structure, but to verify that they are being sent correctly to your property, you'll need to do the following:
If you're not seeing your events after going through these steps, check troubleshooting for common implementation errors.
Send an event from a client
Send an event to your property
Check the Realtime view
After sending an event using the measurement protocol, check the Realtime view for your property. Events typically show up within a few seconds.
Navigate to the realtime view by opening Google Analytics, then going to Realtime in the left nav. You'll want to focus on the bottom charts: "Event count by Event name" and "Conversions by Event name."
If your events aren't showing up in the Realtime view, there are a few common issues you should look for:
Are you using the correct api_secret
Check that you're using the
api_secretfor the right stream. If you set up the measurement protocol for multiple streams, each stream will have its own secret.
Is your api_secret still valid
In order to help combat spam, you're able to revoke
api_secrets. Make sure that the
api_secretyou are using is still valid. It's possible that another user with access to your stream may have revoked access to it by mistake.
