    “How do I get the geographic details to automatically fill in when I record the ‘page_view’ event on my app using Python? I am sending my data to a specific endpoint, but the details aren’t populating like I want. What can I do to solve this?”

    I’m sorry for the inconvenience, but when it comes to geo-information, it’s available only through automatic collection methods such as gtag, GTM, or Google Analytics for Firebase. As a result, I’m afraid we won’t be able to furnish that information from the Measurement Protocol (MP).

    To automatically fill in geographic details when you record the “page_view” event on your app using Python, you will need to make use of specific Python libraries. These libraries can capture data such as the IP address of the user and convert it into geographic details. So, in your Python script where you are currently capturing the ‘page_view’ event, you would also add in the commands to capture and record the IP details and geographic location. Make sure to check the privacy regulations relevant to your app’s use, as sometimes explicit user permission is required to capture such data. Once the geographic details are captured, the details should go to the intended endpoint along with the other details of the ‘page_view’ event. If details are not populating as desired, double-check your script for any errors or omissions. It is also suggested to test across different devices and locations for ensuring that geographic details are being captured accurately.
