Hi,

 

Is there a way to pull the "user report" via API? 

I didn't find it in the documentation.

 

Thanks, 

Hadar.

Hi

 

What does "User Report" mean?

It can not be acquired if it means a custom dimension of the authorized user.

Hi Hadar,

 

If you are referring to the User Explorer, the answer is no.  As of now, the clientID dimension is not exposed anywhere in the API.  It is; however, planned to be there at some point. 

 

If you need something like it then you can use custom dimensions to approximate same.

 

More on custom dimensions:

If you're using Google Tag Manager you can relatively easily expose the client id (check out: https://www.simoahava.com/analytics/improve-data-collection-with-four-custom-dimensions/), add it as a custom dimension and then query it via the API.

 

This is something I've used, and together with the time stamp dimension, opens up your data to a whole new range of analysis possibilities. However, it produces a ton of data - particularly if you have a high volume site - so keep an eye on how many hits you are sending every month.
