Brightspot Integrations Guide

Creating a Google API service account


  1. Create a service account on the Google APIs site: https://console.developers.google.com/apis/credentials.
  2. Create credentials using a service account key that is a JSON key type. The key is downloaded as a JSON file. For more details on this process, see Creating credentials for a Google API service. You will use this file in the section Configuring a site to retrieve Google Analytics 4 data.
  3. Grant your Service Account access to read from the Google Analytics account.
    1. Go to https://analytics.google.com/analytics/web/ and log in.
    2. Go to Google Analytics > Admin > Property Access Management
    3. Click the (+) at the upper right corner of the screen to add a user.
    4. Copy the service account email generated by Google when you set up your service account.
    5. Click Add on the upper right corner to save the configuration.
  4. Note the Google Analytics Property, which confirms that your service account is connected to the GA4 property.
  5. Enable a Google Analytics 4 data API. For details, see Google's documentation.
