cloud based applicaitons analytics

We have a third party owned cloud based application. There is a need to collect reports from the cloud based application.

 

Is there any way we can capture analytics without modifying their application.

 

Somebody saying about proxy server. Any thoughts around.

You could potentially do it via a proxy server and implement the Measurement Protocol to send a hit to Analytics each time something happens - https://developers.google.com/analytics/devguides/collection/protocol/v1/

Thanks for the reply. Could you please be more detailed if possible. I understand how measurement protocol works by sending a http request with appropriate params to GA. But in my case its a software as service which is cloud based. I may not be able to change the application code owned by third party. In such case whete to start in order to use proxy server and send data to google.
