Method: properties.runPivotReport

Returns a customized pivot report of your Google Analytics event data. Pivot reports are more advanced and expressive formats than regular reports. In a pivot report, dimensions are only visible if they are included in a pivot. Multiple pivots can be specified to further dissect your data.

Fields
dimensions[]

object (Dimension)

The dimensions requested. All defined dimensions must be used by one of the following: dimensionExpression, dimensionFilter, pivots, orderBys.

metrics[]

object (Metric)

The metrics requested, at least one metric needs to be specified. All defined metrics must be used by one of the following: metric_expression, metricFilter, orderBys.

dateRanges[]

object (DateRange)

The date range to retrieve event data for the report. If multiple date ranges are specified, event data from each date range is used in the report. A special dimension with field name "dateRange" can be included in a Pivot's field names; if included, the report compares between date ranges. In a cohort request, this dateRanges must be unspecified.

pivots[]

object (Pivot)

Describes the visual format of the report's dimensions in columns or rows. The union of the fieldNames (dimension names) in all pivots must be a subset of dimension names defined in Dimensions. No two pivots can share a dimension. A dimension is only visible if it appears in a pivot.

dimensionFilter

object (FilterExpression)

The filter clause of dimensions. Dimensions must be requested to be used in this filter. Metrics cannot be used in this filter.

metricFilter

object (FilterExpression)

The filter clause of metrics. Applied at post aggregation phase, similar to SQL having-clause. Metrics must be requested to be used in this filter. Dimensions cannot be used in this filter.

currencyCode

string

A currency code in ISO4217 format, such as "AED", "USD", "JPY". If the field is empty, the report uses the property's default currency.

cohortSpec

object (CohortSpec)

Cohort group associated with this request. If there is a cohort group in the request the 'cohort' dimension must be present.

keepEmptyRows

boolean

If false or unspecified, each row with all metrics equal to 0 will not be returned. If true, these rows will be returned if they are not separately removed by a filter.

returnPropertyQuota

boolean

Toggles whether to return the current state of this Analytics Property's quota. Quota is returned in PropertyQuota.

Response body

If successful, the response body contains an instance of RunPivotReportResponse.
