Google Analytics metric values are available only for group of metrics

Hi! I am new in this community and I am not sure is my question is reasonable to put in this category or in code implementation...

I faced to problems in pulling Analytics metrics for particular filters and don't know how identify the reason:

1. I am using service account for pulling metrics for master view of web property programmatically.

2. I am able to pull metrics with filtering for

group 1 (ga:sessions, ga:users, gaSmiley Tongueageviews, ga:bounceRate)

group 2 (ga:transactions,ga:transactionRevenue, ga:itemQuantity, ga:adsenseRevenue)

3. filter example is ga:source==xxx;ga:medium==xxx;ga:campaign==xxx;ga:adContent==xxx;ga:keyword==xxx..

 

The problem is that for same filter either result for group1 is empty or for group 2...

I have tested with https://ga-dev-tools.appspot.com/query-explorer/ and result is same , I have empty values

either for sessions and with other filtering vice versa ..

 

I want to identify the reason, because the same page is logging information to GA ?

Hi Sergey,

Take a look at the Google Analytics dimensions and metrics explorer [1] and click on 'expand all' and 'only show allowed in segments'. There are a lot of invalid combinations that might explain in your missing results here.
