  • Is it possible to fetch event conversion with multi-byte characters using Japanese language in Google Analytics Data API?

    I was trying to get the conversion {eventName} using Japanese with Google Analytics Data API, but I kept getting a “Bad Request”. Can’t I directly obtain the conversion of event names with multi-byte characters such as Japanese?

    Google Analytics Data API should theoretically support multi-byte characters such as Japanese without any issue. However, the “Bad Request” error you’re seeing could be due to a number of reasons. Crucially, it might not necessarily be related to the use of Japanese characters. It could be something related to the structure or syntax of your request. Check the format of your request, making sure the event name is properly encoded and escaped as necessary. You should also check your request parameters as well as the API version you are using. Also make sure you’re using the correct authentication token. A good step would be testing your request with English characters to see if the issue persists. If the problem continues, it would be advisable to reach out to Google’s support team to help diagnose the specific issue.

    Google Analytics Data API should be capable of handling multibyte characters like Japanese in event names. However, the “Bad Request” error you’re encountering may be related to incorrect encoding, misconfiguration, or the API doesn’t understand the request due to incorrect syntax. Please double-check the request you’re sending to ensure it is properly formatted and encoded. If you’re using a library or module to interact with the API, ensure it supports multibyte characters. Alternatively, there could be a bug or limitation in the API itself. In this case, you might want to contact Google support or look for documentation about handling multibyte characters.
