Google Analytics Dashboard for WP
[resolved] 403 Error (27 posts)

    I have installed Google Analytics Dashboard for WP and input all settings according to the video (http://www.deconf.com/en/projects/google-analytics-dashboard-for-wordpress/). Everything goes well until the end when I get the following error in the Dashboard:

    Error calling GET https://www.googleapis.com/analytics/v3/management/accounts/%7Eall/webproperties/%7Eall/profiles?key=AIzaSyDkH3YfR1EJIsuThMj7LzSx24BarlIRKbc: (403) User does not have any Google Analytics account.

    I've tried both clearing the Authorization and getting a new API key, etc. as well as clearing the cache to no avail. Same error each time. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks.

    Well, I guess patience isn't one of my virtues... Everything is working fine now. I suppose after clearing the cache I wasn't waiting long enough for the changes to take effect.

    The same thing happened to me and I've cleared the cache but nothing happens. How long did you wait exactly?

    I suppose I spoke too soon. All that clearing the cache did was enable the Google Analytics Dashboard. It doesn't register any visitors or activity on the site at all. So I don't know what is going on.

    @jbebyck Have you selected a default tracking website name and Single Domain on plugin's options page?

    @Mark Aitken Do you have a Google Analytics account? If not, create one here: http://www.google.com/analytics/

    Thank you. Embarassed to say, but I had "enable tracking" set to "disabled". I set it to "single domain" and it is now working.

    I do have an account and I followed the video carefully. I've also set the plug in to single domain but that's made no difference. I don't know where to select a a default tracking website name. I also haven't even got the Dashboard page to come up after clearing the cache. This installation is very complicated.

    Are you still getting this error: (403) User does not have any Google Analytics account?

    If yes, i suggest clearing cache, clearing authorization, delete google api project from Google Console and create it all over again.

    Yes, is an advanced plugin, a little complicated to setup, with this benefits:
    - allows you to have your own Google API Project
    - you will have your own 50.000 requests per day, almost impossible to reach this courtesy limit
    - you won't depend on changes made by the developer in its Google API Project

    I'm getting this...

    Error calling GET https://www.googleapis.com/analytics/v3/management/accounts/%7Eall/webproperties/%7Eall/profiles?key=AIzaSyAJ4Sj1-q5jS8CAQ9_NMYl6vx3wonA-eTI: (403) User does not have any Google Analytics account.

    I don't mind doing it again but what did I do wrong this time?

    One thing is for sure, the error is coming from Google API and as the error states:

    - you have authorized the application using a Google Account that doesn't have a Google Analytics account attached (you should logout from your google account before authorizing the dashboard)

    - something went bad during the API Project setup, one of users also reported on my forum that he managed to fix the error after deleting the Google API Project and making a new one.

    Let me know if you managed to fix it after deleting and recreating the project.

    Is from Joomla, but the error is the same:

    "I deleted the old project and made a new one, made the adjustements in the panel of the modules and now they both work. Great work!!!! Thank you very much"

    I've deleted my API number and others and now it won't let me uninstall the GA dashboard as it's in use with the main site - if only! When I follow the video instructions I can't even get to the stage of getting an API number. What a mess.

    DELETE THE ENTIRE API PROJECT, NOT THE API KEY OR THE PLUGIN OR SOMETHING ELSE! Just delete the API Project from Google Console!

    You should understand that I haven't a clue as to what I'm doing here - I don't know what an API is and I don't know where a Google console is. I've deleted the API key, Client ID and Client secret in the hope that I might start again but this is obviously a mistake and I can't seem to rectify it - should I give up or is there a way forward?

    To delete the API Project go here:

    https://code.google.com/apis/console/

    Click on your project name, under Google Console logo, on the top-left side of your page and then from the pop-up menu select Delete ...

    Make a new project using our video tutorial and update your API Key, Client ID and Client Secret. That's all!

    Thanks.

    Do I need to sign up for Google Analytics as well? I have done but then it tells me to paste code into each page on my website.

    No, the plugin will insert it for you if you set Enable Tracking to Single Domain on plugin's options page

    Well I've much further this time although it says zero for everything - I assume this because it hasn't been running and therefore can't track users yet... and the Visit by Country and traffic overview tabs are listed but there is no visual. Clicking on the words brings up a little hand grabber but nothing happens.

    My site www.pingnuts.com/ also met such an annoying issue... and I do not know how to fix it.

    I also have this problem on two websites and the plugin was running fine before. Seems like the plugin needs to have an update to deal with something changing at the GA side?

    RETURN OF THIS ERROR
    "There was an Analytics API service error 403: Error calling GET https://www.googleapis.com/analytics/v3/management/accounts/%7Eall/webproperties: (403) Daily Limit Exceeded"

    I installed Google Analyticator a day or so ago and it worked. Today I backed up the site, then upgraded to WordPress 3.6.

    Site name is http://www.burkeandwills150.info. I can see the stats for the site OK if I go into Google Analytics, but the Dashboard widget produces the above error.

    The daily limit is exceeded, I will ask Google TM to increase it, it will automatically reset at 00:00 PST, this means in less than an hour.
