Connect Firebase to and Existing Analytics Property

Hi All,

 

I have several existing Google Analytics Mobile App properties and would now like to implement Firebase.

 

This article shows how to connect Firebase to a new GA property but it doesn't show how to connect Firebase to an existing mobile app property.

 

Is this possible?

 

Thanks

Hi Todd,
AFAIK, this is not supported at the moment

Thanks Julien,

I think I have worked out that if I put the GA tracking ID into the Firebase .plist I can do both.

Thanks

You can initiate GTM via Firebase.
After you do this you can include GA in GTM.

The nice thing of doing it this way is that you log Events in FiB via the specific event code and you can use the same event code as triggers for GTM so that you can control when the GA code is fired.

Hello, I'm trying to do the same, but can't really figure out how to do what you described.

 

Could you elaborate on that?
