Importing Google Analytics data

There are limits on the number of measures and dimensions that can be imported in one dataset from GA.  These are restricted in the GA API.

What I want to do is import several datasets and then link them somehow with an unique id.

Has anyone done this or have an idea how?  

There does not appear to be any keys with which to join the data with.

Thanks but I don't want to use different credentials.

 

I resolved this by creating a date dimension table and including date in each of the datasets then linking to the dimension.

This way I can change the date and all the datasets/visualizations update.

HI @Weka ,

It is impossible to use google analytics connector to link multiple datasource based on different credentials.
AFAIK, current power bi does not support to store multiple data credentials at the same time. (Notice: New credentials will replace stored old credential)
If you connect to the same datasource with different credentials, you can only get duplicated datasource tables with the lastest imported credentials.

I'd like to suggest you use web connector with google analytics API, it allows you to get data from web URL with additional parameters(account, password or access token) instead of stored data credentials.
