Had to update WordPress site to https. Now cannot re-connect Google Analytics plugin

We updated our WordPress website to https recently. (https://www.devondogs.co.uk)

 

We tried to update General Settings in the Google Analytics plugin point to the correct website address, the website name is no longer showing in our list. It used to be, but has now disappeared.

 

The website is still in our Google Console and the ownership has been re-verified.

 

We also tried reactivating the plugin it with a Client ID and secret, but the plugin refused it and defaulted back to asking for an Access Code. So we are back to square one. 

 

Would greatly appreciate any advice to get this working again. We rely on the data a lot.

 

Many thanks

I found a hodge-podge work around for this. I ended up manually adding the tracking code following these instructions: https://support.google.com/analytics/answer/1032385?hl=en

 

Then I installed a second Google Analytic plugin, which allowed manual addition of the tracking code. After that, I went back into the existing GA plugin, and the website had re-appeared in my dropdown list. So I selected it, and deactivated the other plugin.

GA stopped working on all of my sites as well on 12/25/16. Just shows no traffic. I've re-verified credentials, delete and reinstalled & reactivated plug ins. Not sure what to do now.
