Hi Rafael,

this is still not available - custom channel grouping dimension is not possible to access via the API.

You can export data directly from GA and later on manipulate as you see fit.

Kind regards,

Hi Zorin (and Rafael),

@Zorin: This is a request which has been around for some time now - do you have any idea if/when this feature will be added to the Core Reporting API?

@rafael: I'm facing a similar issue building a dashboard for a client. My workaround is to use the rules of the custom channel grouping (in my case solely using source/medium) in the dashboarding to to replicate the custom channel grouping.

Sincerely,
Jesper

Hi Jesper,

I do not have an idea at the moment - once and if available I believe it will be published on GA blog.

Any news on this? Do you know any places where to communicate the need of this feature clearly to Google?

Would be a very necessary feature for both the reporting and MCF APIs.

Best,
Edgar

Hi,

Does anyone know if GA Premium allows you to:

a) Use the Custom Channel Grouping in all other reports in GA, just like you can do today with the Default Channel Grouping?

b) If you can send a Custom Channel Grouping via the API?

 

As already discussed in this and other threads, neither of those are possible in GA Free. But what about in GA Premium?

Hi Karl,

 

It's not possible on GA premium either - would be nice to have, but i guess a workaround like Jesper suggests is the next best thing
