Google Analytics v4 - Data not showing on dashboard?

0 like 0 dislike
454 views

I've been working on integrating Google Analytics v4 into my application. I've followed this :https://developers.google.com/analytics/devguides/collection/android/v4/ however, my analytics dashboard isn't displaying any data.

Here is how I've set it up in my application file:

private static final String PROPERTY_ID = "UA-*******-*";

public enum TrackerName{
    APP_TRACKER, // Tracker used only in this app.
    GLOBAL_TRACKER, // Tracker used by all the apps from a company. eg: roll-up tracking.
    ECOMMERCE_TRACKER, // Tracker used by all ecommerce transactions from a company.
 }


public synchronized Tracker getTracker(TrackerName trackerId){

    if (!mTrackers.containsKey(trackerId)) {

        GoogleAnalytics analytics = GoogleAnalytics.getInstance(this);
        Tracker t = (trackerId == TrackerName.APP_TRACKER) ? analytics.newTracker(PROPERTY_ID)
        :(trackerId == TrackerName.GLOBAL_TRACKER) ? analytics.newTracker(R.xml.global_tracker)
        : analytics.newTracker(R.xml.ecommerce);
        mTrackers.put(trackerId, t);

    }
    return mTrackers.get(trackerId);
}

Here is my global config file:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<resources xmlns:tools="http://schemas.android.com/tools" tools:ignore="TypographyDashes">

<!-- the Local LogLevel for Analytics -->
<string name="ga_logLevel">verbose</string>

<!-- how often the dispatcher should fire -->
<integer name="ga_dispatchPeriod">30</integer>

<!-- Treat events as test events and don't send to google -->
<bool name="ga_dryRun">false</bool>

<integer name="ga_sessionTimeout">300</integer>

<!-- The apps Analytics Tracking Id -->
<string name="ga_trackingId">UA-*******-*</string>

   <!-- The screen names that will appear in reports -->
    <screenName name="com.purpledecks.bottomsup.fragments.frag1">frag1Screen</screenName>
    <screenName name="com.purpledecks.bottomsup.fragments.frag2">frag2Screen</screenName>
    <screenName name="com.purpledecks.bottomsup.fragments.frag3">frag3Screen</screenName>
</resources>

Then in my frag1 I set it up to send the hit as follows:

    bottomsUp = (BottomsUpApplication) getActivity().getApplication();
    Tracker t = bottomsUp.getTracker(BottomsUpApplication.TrackerName.APP_TRACKER);
    t.setScreenName("frag 1");
    t.send(new HitBuilders.AppViewBuilder().build());

In my log cat I have the following:

The same question has been asked here but there was no solution...any ideas? or is there a certain way I should set up the property with the project name?

So it tells me that it is sending the hit but nothing appears on the dashboard. If anyone could help me on this or see what I've done wrong I'd appreciate it.

I would give it another day, new accounts normally kick in by 48 hours. I cant see anything wrong with your code.
@DJ-DOO did you find the answer? Now i am having the same issue.
yep...I just had to wait as @DalmTo said to me, if you wait 48 hrs...it takes time to activate
@DJ-DOO thx. I will try.
So funny, I waited 2 days, after that I was forced to migrate from GA to flurry, It is more understandable library
