Not getting GCLID for all traffic eventhough Auto-tagging is ON

Hello, 
I am trying to import  offline conversion via Adwords API , For that, I need GCLID for each user come to my website. 
 
As per  data , I got only a few users with GCLID parameter into URL  and majority of the users don't have GCLID passed.
 
Is there any way we can troubleshoot this ?
 
 
Thank you.

Usually it is because URL redirects.
Make sure that you do not have redirected URLs in your final URLs

This can also cause Google ad words and Google Analytics statistics inconsistencies also

HI Merve,
Only users which click on AdWords ad to visit your website will have GCLID. Visitors from other marketing channels / organic search or direct visitors will not have GCLID in landing page URL
Home this helps

Hi Nik,
We are looking only traffic who came via adwords ad and few of them don't have GCLID .

Hello Armen,

Thank you for getting back to me. Could you explain more when you said that you do not have redirected URLs in your final URLs.

Thank you.
