I am working on a project similar to filippa.com in process of registering a website user will input her/his web id, something like XX-XXXX-X.

So I need to implement a plugin in my item view override to get the website analytics from Great Dear Google Analytics. Any suggestions would be appreciated.


It's a very involved process of authentication and pulling data from the Google Analytics API: https://developers.google.com/analytics/devguides/reporting/

You might try playing around with their Explorer tool as well: https://ga-dev-tools.appspot.com/account-explorer/

I am almost positive you cannot pull data without some type of authentication. There are several Joomla components that will pull Analytics in a dashboard, but they are set to show data for one site and require setting up secret keys, etc.

You might check out some of the PHP Google Analytics scripts from CodeCanyon, but those require authentication as well: https://codecanyon.net/category/php-scripts?as=0&referrer=homepage&tags=google%20analytics&term=google%20analytics

  • Thanks. is there any way to get simple traffic reports without authorization? cause a seller registers to this application and buyers need to see this GA-Reports, so the buyers do not have authorization information. – Amin Bakhtiari Far Jun 23 '18 at 4:11
