Reports on custom data not showing any data

Hi all,


Just starting to work with custom data, dimensions and reports, and I'm not seeing any data. Here are some more details:

I pretty much did everything as described on this page


I defined 2 custom dimensions, call them crm_id, seg_id, both under user scope!
crm_id was defined as given by hit data, and seg_id was defined as hit overwrite.


I then defined a data set with crm_id as the key and seg_id as the other dimension.


We then went on the mock site we set up for testing and we saw crm_id's being generated and we saw them in reports. So far so good!

We then *successfully* uploaded CSV files connecting crm_id's to seg_id's, both manually, and using the API.
We then waited (more than) 24 hours and entered the site with the same crm_id (we can see the entries with the same crm_id in the reports).

However, we can't seem to find ANY data on seg_id. We thought we'd see the seg_id connected to that special crm_id we used to re-enter the site, but we're not seeing any of it using the "flat table" mode in a custom report.


Can anyone think of what we're missing?

What metrics are you trying to show for these CD?

Hi Adil,

I was trying to see sessions as the metric. It showed crm_id action according to what we did, but when we add seg_id to the dimensions, we see no data at all. Not even empty data for seg_id... We just get a blank report.
