Possible bug for GA/GSC Linkage

There appears to be a GA bug where it can’t be synced to GSC.  This happens when you go to Admin >> Property >> Property Settings and select Adjust Search Console.  

 

Once in Search Console Settings, you select Edit next to the site URL.  (In the observed example, the site did not have any views linked.)  

 

Under Add a web property to Google Analytics, the user is prompted they are about to be redirected to Google Analytics.

Select OK. Instead of being taken to Google Analytics the user is taken back to GSC.  No options to select a View are available.

Hi :-)

Is the person that is trying to make the connection have admin permissions in both GA and Search Console

 

Has the domain been verified correctly in Search Console (usually www and non-www both need to be verified)

 

and.. is the Default URLl entered correctly in GA Property Settings
eg Default URL in Property settings for www.domain.com should not be trying to be linked to verified website non-www.domain.com in search console
