Panoply's Google Analytics data source relies on the Google Analytics API to retrieve data from a Google Analytics account. This API has several limits that cannot be avoided:
- You can supply a maximum of 7 dimensions in any query.
- You can supply a maximum of 10 metrics for any query.
- Certain combinations of dimensions and/or metrics are invalid.
The constraints above are applicable when you select dimensions and metrics in the configuration page of the Google Analytics data source. For any change you made, you're required to validate your new selection by clicking on the Validate Metrics And Dimensions button.
You can use the Query Explorer of the Google Analytics Demos & Tools to check the results of different combinations of metrics and dimensions directly from your Google Analytics account.
