Strict security rules around the usage of Google Applications means that you may need to verify your application with Google before you use it.
On the Connections page, click on Add a New Connection in Loome Integrate.
Select the Google Analytics connector.
Once you click Next, you will be prompted to visit the developer registration page for Google Analytics as the first link under Setup Steps. Click on this link to be directed to the registration page.
Click Create Credentials at the top of the page and select OAuth client ID.
You may be prompted to set up an OAuth Consent Screen. We will need this to set up the Google Analytics connector.
First, set the _User Type_ to External.
Then, provide an Application name and a support email.
Set the Domain name according to your region.
Once you have provided consent, re-select the OAuth Client Id credentials page (if you were redirected).
Set the Application Type as Web Application and provide a meaningful name.
Add a Redirect URI. You can temporarily use https://loomesoftware.com and we will change this URI in the next few steps.
Once that has been created, you will be provided with a Client ID and Client Secret.
Return to Loome Integrate and add the Client ID and Client Secret that was provided in the above step.
Click on Generate Redirect URI.
Copy the Redirect URI that appears below the Generate Redirect URI button.
In the Google Web Console, open Client Credentials and paste the Redirect URI you generated in Loome Integrate into the URI field to overwrite the redirect URI value we added earlier.
Once saved, click the Authorize button in Loome Integrate. If you are told the web app isn’t safe, show advanced settings and continue to the website.
You will then be prompted to allow access to Google Analytics.
Once you have allowed access, your Google Analytics connector will be ready for Loome Integrate.
If your authorization has been successful, you can click on Continue shown in the following image.
You will now be directed to the connection string page and you’ll be able to specify an analytics profile if required, as shown with the highlighted field in the image below. When you clear this connection string, it will choose your default profile.
Choose the agent that will validate this connection and click Submit.
You will be notified in the bottom right corner if this connection has been validated and created successfully.
If successful, you can now use this connection in your Loome Integrate tasks.
