Universal Analytics and Internal Identity Management System

Visitor ✭ ✭ ✭

We would like to link Universal Analytics with our Identity Management System, essentially via the unique IDs of the users in the IdM database.  Is this feature available only with premium or is it possible with the free version?  Are there any code sample links you could share?

 

I did a quick search on the forums and didn't see an answer to these questions, but I apologize if I missed them.

 

Thanks,

Jonathan

Hi Jonathan :-)
Sounds like what you may be after is the User ID feature
There is a section of the help docs with information about this (with further links to the right)
https://support.google.com/analytics/answer/3123662?hl=en

and also a code example in the Dev docs
