  • Encountering GRPC Connection Issue with Google Analytics Data V1Beta

    I’m encountering a GRPC error while attempting to utilize the GA4 analytics API following the API quickstart guide. The specific error message is: Grpc.Core.RpcException: ‘Status(StatusCode=”Unavailable”, Detail=”failed to connect to all addresses”, DebugException=”Grpc.Core.Internal.CoreErrorDetailException: {“created”:”@1686669889.017000000″,”description”:”Failed to pick subchannel”,”file”:”……srccoreextfiltersclient_channelclient_channel.cc”,”file_line”:3218,”referenced_errors”:[{“created”:”@1686669889.017000000″,”description”:”failed to connect to all addresses”,”file”:”……srccorelibtransporterror_utils.cc”,”file_line”:165,”grpc_status”:14}]}”)’

    Do you have any suggestions or advice on how to resolve this issue?

    Here is a snippet of the code I’m currently using:

    BetaAnalyticsDataClient client = BetaAnalyticsDataClient.Create();
    RunReportRequest request = new RunReportRequest
        Property = "properties/" + propertyId,
        Dimensions = { new Dimension { Name = "city" }, },
        Metrics = { new Metric { Name = "activeUsers" }, },
        DateRanges = { new DateRange { StartDate = "2020-03-31", EndDate = "today" }, },
        var response = client.RunReport(request);
        Console.WriteLine("Report result:");
        foreach (Row row in response.Rows)
            Console.WriteLine("{0}, {1}", row.DimensionValues[0].Value, row.MetricValues[0].Value);
    catch (Exception ex)

    It seems like the error you are encountering is related to a network issue when trying to connect to the GA4 analytics API. To resolve this issue, you can try setting the GrpcAdapter property of the BetaAnalyticsDataClientBuilder to use the REST HTTP/1.1 transport protocol. Here is a code snippet showing how to do this:

    var client = new BetaAnalyticsDataClientBuilder
    GrpcAdapter = RestGrpcAdapter.Default

    This configuration change should help resolve the connectivity problem. For more details and information, you can refer to the official documentation on using the REST HTTP/1.1 transport protocol with the GA4 analytics API: [link](https://googleapis.dev/dotnet/Google.Analytics.Data.V1Beta/latest/#using-the-rest-http11-transport)

    Give this approach a try and let me know if you need further assistance!

    The error message you are encountering suggests that there is a problem connecting to the GRPC server. Here are a few suggestions to help resolve the issue:

    1. Check your internet connection: Ensure that you have a stable internet connection. Sometimes network issues can cause connection problems.

    2. Verify API credentials: Double-check your API credentials (such as API keys or service account credentials). Make sure you have the correct credentials and they are properly configured.

    3. Check firewall or network restrictions: If you are working within a corporate network or behind a firewall, there might be restrictions in place that are preventing the connection. Contact your network administrator to verify if any restrictions are causing the issue.

    4. Update GRPC version: Ensure that your GRPC version is up to date. Check for any available updates and consider upgrading to the latest version to see if it resolves the problem.

    5. Retry after some time: The error message you received indicates that the server is currently unavailable. It could be a temporary issue on the server-side. You can try again after some time to see if the issue is resolved.

    6. Check service status: Verify the status of the GA4 analytics API service. There could be a known service disruption or maintenance activity impacting the availability of the service. You can check the Google Cloud Platform Status Dashboard or the API documentation for any service notifications.

    If none of these suggestions resolve the issue, it might be helpful to reach out to the Google Analytics support team for further assistance. They can provide more specific guidance based on the nature of the error and your specific setup.
