Metrics and Dimensions to query in Google Analytics

Data Sources

Not all Google Analytics metrics and dimensions can be queried together. Check if a dimension and a metric combination is valid from within Google’s documentation in the Dimensions and Metrics Explorer.

In this example, we want to see which metrics we can query with eventAction. Click the plus sign to expand the Event Tracking table, which is where the eventAction dimension is located.

Click Event Tracking in the Core Reporting API documentation

Once it’s expanded, hover over ga:eventAction to reveal a checkbox, and check it. We want to check which metrics we can use in the eCommerce table, so we have expanded the eCommerce table to compare.

Some of the metrics in the eCommerce table are greyed out; this means we can’t query them with eventAction. You can query any metric that is not greyed out with eventAction.

Open eventAction under the Event Tracking tab
