Accessing Client ID from Tableau

Visitor ✭ ✭ ✭

I am trying to access GA data from Tableau. However Client ID data that I see under 'User Explorer' doesn't show up in Tableau. I am wondering if there is any restriction from GA side on exposing this data to Tableau.

 

Below is a picture of the data in GA.

And below is the picture of Tableau export. I can pick the 'Add dimension' or 'Add measure' list item and chose from several fields. This list has many GA fields but not 'Client ID'.

At present, the ‘Client ID’ dimension is available only in the ‘user explorer’ report. You can not use this dimension in a custom report, yet.

In the mean time, if you wish to use ‘client ID’ in a custom report, then you need to create your own custom dimension which can retrieve the client IDs.
