Creating Audiences in GA: "Your data request includes an invalid regular expression."

Hello,

 

I want to create segmented audiences in Google Analytics in order to improve my remarketing efforts in AdWords.

 

When defining my audience (whether it is all users or more segmented) I get the following error message:

 

Invalid regular expression 

Your data request includes an invalid regular expression

 

I've tried to search the forum, but can't seem to find a relevant discussion.

 

Hope you can shed some light on the issue

 

Best Regards,

Kaspar

Hi Kaspar,

It's a well-known issue. Hopefully, it's a temporary bug in your GA account.

Read this topic: https://www.en.advertisercommunity.com/t5/Filters/Invalid-Regular-Expression-Error-in-GA/td-p/484977

Let them know that you have this kind of issue and I am sure they will get back to you:

1. Go to https://support.google.com/analytics/
2. Choose Contact -> Email.

Hope this helps.

I'm having the same issue too – both with the product, and with the lack of relevant doc / discussion

@Taavi Kalvi

 there appears to be no such option to email Google Analytics support, certainly not on that page you linked. Do you have such an email address?

Hi @Mark C

 

Here's the link: https://support.google.com/analytics/contact/ga_none?hl=en&cfnti=Create_and_manage&cft=3

 

I have heard that some of you don't have this option in the menu so hopefully this direct link helps you out. Smiley Happy

 

Let us know how it goes.
