  • Trouble updating DefaultUri in AnalyticsAdminServiceClient using .NET C#?

    Hiya, buddies! So, here’s the scoop. I’ve been trying to work on updating the default uri for a datastream I’ve already set up using the Google.Analytics.Admin.V1Beta .NET library. Funny enough, it only seems to be updating the name, but it refuses to touch the stream url. And the weirdest part? No error messages, nada, zilch.

    Here’s the code I cooked up:

    //A bit of code here for your viewing pleasure            

    You know, it occurred to me after some head-scratching. The Google docs say that the default uri is a solid piece of work and won’t budge once it’s set. Could that be the reason my stream url is being so stubborn? Do you reckon that’s why I can’t change it? Here’s the link to the documentation of the culprit in question:
    The Unmovable Uri

    Thanks for giving this a ponder, fellas!

    Yes, you’re right in your assumption. According to Google’s document that you provided, once a default URI is set for a datastream, it cannot be updated or changed. That’s likely why your code isn’t updating the stream URL, even though there are no obvious error messages. You might be able to modify other stream attributes, such as the stream name, but the default URI is an immovable property once it’s been set. As a result, there aren’t code changes that you could make to change this behaviour.

    Based on the information from the Google documentation link you provided, the default uri for a datastream is immutable once it’s set up. This means it cannot be changed or updated after its creation, which can explain why you’ve been unsuccessful in updating the stream url. If you need to link your Datastream to a different URL, it might require setting up a new Datastream. Please consider the importance of setting the correct default uri at the beginning due to its unmodifiable attribute.
