    It sounds like you’re working hard to find an endpoint to batch data before sending it off, but you’re having a hard time finding a suitable replacement for the ‘/batch’ endpoint in GA4. Currently, it appears GA4 doesn’t directly support the batch endpoint as Universal Analytics did.

    As an alternative for bulk data transfer, you might consider using the Google Analytics Data API. While the realtime event might seem missing, the GA4 data API provides batch data functionality.

    Your exploration with the gtag.js solution you found on the Google developer site could be a good fallback, despite feeling like a shortcut. These tools are provided for this very reason – to streamline implementations and provide support for varying use cases.

    Remember, Google Analytics is an evolving platform and Google has been actively updating their GA4 offering. New functionalities are added often, so keeping an eye on their release notes and updates could prove helpful. Also, consider reaching out to Google’s support or community forums for more specific guidance on your task. You’re not alone in these challenges – others developing with Google Analytics might have encountered this and found workarounds or solutions.
