  • Access Denied: GA4 Property API Restriction – Reach Out to Google Analytics API Support for Assistance

    Posted by Quinn on 3 June 2023 at 4:19 am

    Hey there, I’ve been using the run report API with GA’s data API v1beta and I’ve stumbled across this error message. It reads:

    “response”: {
    “error”: {
    “code”: 429,
    “message”: “This property is denied access to the API. Contact Google Analytics API Support for more information.”,
    “status”: “RESOURCE_EXHAUSTED”
    I’ve been trying to find a solution, but the API documentation isn’t providing much help: https://developers.google.com/analytics/devguides/reporting/data/v1/rest/v1beta/properties/runReport

    I’m kind of hitting a wall here. Have any of you experienced this before or have any insights you could share? I’d really appreciate it.

    The error code 429 you’re encountering typically means that you’ve exceeded the rate limits for calling the API. Each Google API has its own restrictions and quotas on how often you can call it and how much data you can request. If you exceed these limits, Google will start to reject your requests with a 429 error until your usage drops back down below the limits. It may also means your request was denied, possibly because you might not have the necessary permissions to access the property in Google Analytics.

    If you have checked and verified that your usage is within the API’s limits and you have the correct permissions, and you’re still getting this error, I would suggest reaching out to Google Analytics API Support team as recommended in the error message. They should be able to provide more specific insight into why you’re being denied access.

    The error message indicated with code 429 and status ‘RESOURCE_EXHAUSTED’ suggests that your application has reached a rate limit restricting the number of API calls you can make in a certain period of time. If your application is making several requests to the API in quick succession, this could be the cause of the error. You may need to introduce delays between your requests to avoid hitting the rate limit. The “property is denied access to the API” might mean that you’re trying to access a Google Analytics property to which you don’t have the necessary access permissions or it is not enabled for API access. You should contact the owner of the Google Analytics property or Google analytics support for further assistance.
