Custom dimension data is wrong in Data Studio

Hi all,

 

I have several custom dimensions and custom metrics in Google Analytics which I would like to have in a Data Studio Report.

 

However, I am noticing, with the exact same settings (date range, data source, etc). That the data is not the same.

 

 I only see one value of the dimension with the aggregate amount of the metric.

 

So instead of

Value A - 3

Value B - 3

Value C - 3

 

In Data Studio I see:

 

Value A - 9

 

Any idea why this is not the same?

Hi Jos, 

 

Could you include screenshots of your report and any filters that you have on the report as well?

Hmm.. Interesting.

 

Is the segment you have selected in the Google Analytics report on a session or user level?

Hi Lindsey,

 

I have no segments used in GA and not in Data Studio.

 

It looks like custom metric data is not getting into Data Studio..
