Will firebase be a connectable data source to Data studio?

Currently I don't see an option for Firebase to be a connectable data source to Data Studio? 

 

Is this something which is being developed or will be possible down the line?

 

Thanks

Actually, you CAN connect Firebase to Data Studio:

 

https://support.google.com/firebase/answer/7200987

 

A few caveats, though:

 

This requires Big Query, so charges may apply.

This is still in Beta. 

 

HTH!

Hi Cyrus,

 

If you export your firebase data to BigQuery, you can connect to those tables in Data Studio. Here's a help center article on how to do this: https://support.google.com/firebase/answer/7200987?hl=en&ref_topic=6386699

@Dave O @Rick E come on guys this hardly qualifies as a connection :-)

Time to ask Nick to prioritize Firebase ^_^

Hi Julien,

 

The Firebase backend (due to implementation details) would be a very technically complex direct connection to Data Studio. For the foreseeable future, the best way to visualize Firebase data in Data Studio will be via BigQuery.

Hi Rick,

 

I've seen the first TB of data per month is free in Big Query? Is that right?

 

Also, and granted this could be quite a tricky question to answer, but could you give any idea as to how much data that could be (or what traffic level that would cover)?

 

Thanks for the help

It might help if there is a roadmap here for analytics, having two products is confusing.

 

No firebase app, admittedly nice the chrome mobile instance

 

No friendly help message in Google analytics​ to say ,'hey your app is connected​ to firebase​, don't open Google Analytics​ app ever again'

 

.....optons for themes to the 'streamview'​ would be good
