Hi Anton,

 

You can use a Reporting API for that: https://developers.google.com/analytics/devguides/reporting/

 

Here you can find a demo as well: https://ga-dev-tools.appspot.com/embed-api/basic-dashboard/

 

Hope this helps. Let us know how it goes.

Taavi

Taavi, thanks for your reply. My question was not clear. It was specific to Data Studio Dashboards. I update the question.

Long story short: Data Studio is self-contained and cannot (for now) be included/embedded anywhere else.

If what you need is just a link, sure, but that's not exactly what I call integration :-)

This assumes whoever clicks the link has access to the report.

I have years of SQL SSRS reports that I like to bring online with some interactivity without rewriting. SSRS data to Data Studio looked nice. Downsides: 1) No PDF 2) no web integration

Alternatives like Tableaux or Clickview require seats, etc. Was looking for a clean shortcut. The WEB portal does have roles and login, maybe I can hide the URLs.

DataStudio is very much still in its infancy, I wouldn't be surprised if further integration came later. Fingers crossed for 2017 Smiley Happy
