Attributing Goal Completions to AdWords in Analytics

I am defining the product business requirements that a set of developers will be working with to complete/support a software enhancement but I have been unable to identify a reporting issue in Google Analytics as it pertains to Google AdWords Campaigns.


My objective is to complete a campaign tracking process as it begins in Google AdWords ( auto-tagging + adwords/analytics linking + data sharing enabled ) and is ready for retrieval in Google Analytics.  My problem, while I have been able to query the API to gather AdWords campaign information, unfortunately I have not been successful in attributing site goal information to these campaigns.  When pulling campaign information from the API, the "Goals" are defined ( ex. download brochure, mailing list, etc. ) but the "Goal Completions" have no values or zero.  The Google Analytics web interface shows the opposite, there are completed goals.

While I feel as though I completed all the operational tasks to complete this process, I believe there may be some oversight on my part.  Any help in meeting my objective of attributing "Goal Completions" to Google AdWords campaigns in Google Analytics, will be greatly appreciated.

Thanks in advance.

Hi relecom;

This question is more relevant to the AdWords API help forum, or Analytics. I would suggest to ask there;
