Real time working, but nothing showing up in Behavior or Audience

We implemented direct (curl) calls from our server using PHP. Both pageviews and events are showing up perfectly in the real time view, but nothing is getting saved to reports.

 

I read some similar posts on these boards, so to save us some time:

 

* This was set up and getting traffic days ago, so there's no chance that we're still within the window that there should not be data.
* I don't have any filters set on the view(s).
* No IP filter is set on either of the projects where we're having this issue
* The referral exclusion we had at launch, that probably shouldn't have applied to the server the tracking calls are being made from anyway, was removed days ago
* I have selected the current day in the report range

 

We are sending the following fields:

 

v=1
tid
ds
uid
geoid
t
dl
dt

 

I should also mention that we're seeing the following in 'Property Settings':

 

Last day: 3,939 hits

Last 7 Days: 19,562 hits

Last 30 Days: 19,852 hits

It appears I solved this, in what must be the dumbest possible way.  Even when the data is coming from a server where there's no possibility of retrieving a user agent string, GA still expects you to send a fake one or it won't use the data for reports.  /facepalm

GA takes around 2-4 hours to process and show the data. It should be working by now.

As I said, the data has been coming in for close to a week.  I'm well past the 48-hour window in which I might still get reports by waiting.

Hi @JUST N yes that may happen as GA may consider your hits originating from a bot or similar so ua should be sent in any case.

 

Kind regards,

They *are* originating from a bot.  A Facebook bot!  As such we don't get the user's user agent.  It seems pretty silly that we have to spoof one.
