Event Tracking not working (no data in GA)

Hi Googlers

Please can you assist, we are sending events to our GA account & the events are not reflecting on our dashboard.

They were working before & we have tested the events against the /debug URL and we get the following back:

$ curl -X GET ""
  "hitParsingResult": [ {
    "valid": true,
    "parserMessage": [ ],
    "hit": "/debug/collect?el=Duration+1\u0026cid=4d2400bf-f07a-4d7c-8a0b-5bf6cf21c80d\u0026ea=Call+to+27877249323\u0026ec=Voice+Call\u0026t=event\u0026v=1\u0026tid=UA-XXXXXXXX-1"
  } ],
  "parserMessage": [ {
    "messageType": "INFO",
    "description": "Found 1 hit in the request."
  } ]

Is there a setting in GA that hides events?  We suspect this could be the case as when we hit up the URL with a browser we can see the event, but if we send via CURL or our Python library it does not work.

Hi Mark,

"" is debug mode url. So, We can't see the request on Google Analytics Report.
If you want to see it, you request DON'T debug mode, such as "".

Thanks Yamada.

In production we are not uaing debug I posted the incorrect URL. We think it's a setting on the actual GA to which the event are being sent, because we see the events for majority of the account we sent them to.
