  • How can I access GA4 logs for automatically collected events, specifically 'notification_open' events?

    Posted by Sophia on 10 July 2022 at 7:58 am

    Hey, so I’m trying to figure out how to get the count of ‘notification_open’ events per message ID. On this site, I saw that these events got a ‘message_id’ parameter:

    But I’m at a loss about where I can find logs with this parameter? When I’m over on GA and Firebase Console, I can pull up total events data… but I’m stuck on how I can see these events with specific parameters. Any help to solve this problem would be appreciated, thanks!

    Absolutely, I’d love to help you with this. So, there is a solution. What you need to do is take advantage of the BigQuery export feature provided by Firebase. Once you link your Firebase app to BigQuery, you will have access to all your raw analytics data. Specific parameters, like the ‘message_id’ parameter you mentioned, will be readily available there. So that’s it! You’ll be able to get counts of ‘notification_open’ events per message ID without a problem. Isn’t that great?

    If you’re looking to get a count of ‘notification_open’ events per message ID, you would first need to ensure that you’re logging the ‘message_id’ parameter with the ‘notification_open’ events. Assuming that you’re doing so, you should be able to access these logs on your Firebase Console.

    If you navigate to the ‘Events’ tab under ‘Analytics’ in the Firebase Console, you will see a list of your logged events. Find the ‘notification_open’ event in this list and click on it. This will open a detailed view of the event, and from here, you want to look for the ‘Event Parameters’ section.

    Within the ‘Event Parameters’ section, you should see the ‘message_id’ parameter (assuming it is being logged with the event). By clicking on this, you should be able to view a count of ‘notification_open’ events per each unique ‘message_id’ being logged with the event.

    If you’re not seeing the ‘message_id’ parameter or not seeing the data you’re expecting, you may need to double-check your event logging code to ensure the ‘message_id’ is being correctly logged with each ‘notification_open’ event.

    Remember that it may take up to 72 hours for event data to appear in the Firebase Console so if you’ve recently implemented this logging, you may need to wait a few more days to see the data.
