Troubleshooting

Data Preview Unavailable

If there is no data preview after clicking on Test Data, there might be a problem with your source configuration. The most common causes are:

  • Date range: Try a smaller date range. You can load the rest of your data afterward through our manual data load function.
  • Insufficient permissions: Please make sure your authorized account has at least admin-level permissions.
  • Invalid metrics, attributes, or breakdowns: You may not have any data for the selected metrics, attributes, or breakdowns.
  • Incompatible combination of metrics, attributes, or breakdowns: The combination you have selected cannot be queried together. Please refer to the service's documentation to view a full list of metrics that can be included in the same source.
