Google Analytics Version SupportThe component provides a relational view of the Google Analytics profiles in your Google account or across your Google Apps domain. The component includes tables that contain often-used dimensions and metrics as columns; additionally, you can customize the table schemas or write your own to combine any valid set of dimensions and metrics. The component surfaces the columns available through the Google Analytics Management API and the Google Anlytics Core Reporting API. You must enable these APIs by creating a project in the Google Developers Console. See Connecting to Google for a guide to creating a project and authenticating to the APIs.
