  • Trouble with ApplicationDefaultCredentials in Laravel Lumen

    So here’s the deal—I’ve been working on integrating Google Analytics into my Laravel Lumen project using this package https://github.com/akki-io/laravel-google-analytics. I followed the instructions for installation and configuration to the letter, still a lil’ issue has cropped up that’s got me stumped.

    I’ve been pulling this code into my controller:



    And in my configuration file:



    But something’s not quite right. When I fire up the controller, I get hit back with this:

    error in postman 500 status code

    Feels like I’m missing an important piece of the puzzle here. I just need to pull some data from Google Analytics. Any bright ideas?

    The details provided are quite vague and it’s hard to determine the exact cause of your issue. However, a 500 status code generally indicates a server error. Possible issues could include improper configurations in your ‘TestController.php’ or ‘laravel-google-analytics.php’ files, outdated or incompatible package versions, or an issue with the Laravel framework itself. You might want to double-check your configurations against the package instructions. Also, make sure that your Laravel Lumen, Google Analytics package, and PHP versions are up to date and compatible with one another. Posting your actual code instead of ‘[…]’ would also make it easier for others to diagnose the problem. Additionally, you could check the Laravel log files for any specific error messages.

    While the image description mentions a “500 status code”, it’s crucial to determine the exact issue for a successful debugging. The HTTP 500 Internal Server Error is a very general HTTP status code that indicates something has gone wrong on the website’s server, but the server could not be more specific on what the exact problem is.

    To get a more detailed error, you should temporarily enable debug mode in your .env file by adjusting the APP_DEBUG value to true. Then try to trigger the error again. Be sure to change it back to false once you’ve solved the issue, as leaving debugging enabled in production can lead to the exposure of sensitive information.

    Also, ensure that you have properly set up the credentials for the Google Analytics API in your config/laravel-google-analytics.php file. Verify that you have the correct values for the view_id, service_account_credentials_json, etc. Check to see if the service account linked to the service_account_credentials_json file has the necessary permissions in your Google Analytics account.

    Lastly, don’t forget to clear the configuration cache using the php artisan config:clear command after making changes to the config/laravel-google-analytics.php. The Laravel framework will cache configurations to improve performance, so changes made won’t take effect until the cache has been cleared.
