API Issue: Data Discordance Between Results from Connector & On Google Analytics

Hi all, 

 

Thank you very much for reading this.

Hope you are well.

 

Recently we have experienced data discordance between pulled numbers by GA connector (Omniscope) and the actual results on Google Analytics.

 

Does anyone have similar experience?

Does the discordance potentially caused by API?

 

Many thanks!

you can also try: https://ga-dev-tools.appspot.com/query-explorer/

 

start with minimum metrics and dimensions and later try to add more.

This can be explained by a couple of things:

a) if you include today, the data might not be fully processed

b) if there is sampling, the sampling level might be different (faster response vs more precision)

c) maybe your API request isn't actually exactly the same?

d) make sure you query the same view
