The Realtime Data API can create reports on User scoped Custom Dimensions. See Custom user properties to learn more about custom dimensions. Custom dimensions are specified in an API report request by the dimension's parameter name and scope. For example, include "customUser:last_level" in a Data API request to create a report for the User-scoped Custom Dimension with parameter name "last_level". This API request will fail if the property has not registered this User-scoped Custom Dimension.
The following are the general syntax for Custom Dimensions. You can query the Metadata API method to list all Custom Dimensions for a Property.
|Generic API Name||Description|
|customUser:parameter_name||User-scoped Custom Dimension for parameter_name|
Event-scoped custom dimensions are not currently supported in the Realtime API.
The following metrics can be requested in reports for any property. Specify the "API Name" in a Metric's name field for a column of the metric in the report response.
|API Name||UI Name||Description|
|activeUsers||Active users||The number of distinct users who visited your site or app.|
|conversions||Conversions||The count of conversion events. Events are marked as conversions at collection time; changes to an event's conversion marking apply going forward. You can mark any event as a conversion in Google Analytics, and some events (i.e. first_open, purchase) are marked as conversions by default.
