Google Data Studio

Getting Started with Google Data Studio


  • To access Google Data Studio, a Google account is needed. You can log into Google Data Studio or create an account on the Google Data Studio page.

  • An Ibexa Connect Data Source created and authorized in Google Data Studio

  • A created (and executed) scenario


To establish a connection to Google Data Studio you must create and run your scenario beforehand! See the instructions below.

Creating an Ibexa Connect Data Source in Google Data Studio

  1. Create your scenario.


    You must run the scenario before you connect to the Make data source in Google Data Studio.

    Each Google Data Studio scenario in Ibexa Connect must have at least two modules: the webhook, New Request (the first module in the scenario) and the responder/aggregator, New Response (the last module in the scenario in which you must specify a structure for your data). Between these two modules, you should place other modules.

    You can use this template for it:

    Use the New Request module to generate a webhook URL.

    Copy the Webhook URL to use it in step 6.

  2. Save the scenario and Run it by clicking the Run Once button


  3. Click the following link to add the Ibexa Connect data source to Google Data Studio:

  4. To confirm the action click on the AUTHORIZE button.


  5. Sign-in using your Google account credentials and grant access rights by clicking on the ALLOW button.


  6. Paste the Ibexa Connect webhook URL - use the webhook URL from step 1.


  7. Click on the CONNECT button in the top-right corner.


  8. Rename the Data Source if needed:

  9. Add the data source to your report.



New response

This module must be the last module in your scenario. It sends collected data to Google Data Studio.

URL Enter a path relative to For example: /v4/reports:batchGet.

Note: For the list of available endpoints, refer to the Google Analytics v4 API Documentation.

Group by

Here you can define an expression containing one or more mapped items. The aggregated data will be then separated under Groups with the same expression's value. Each Group outputs as a separate bundle and contains a Key with the evaluated expression and the aggregated text. By doing this, you can use the Key as a filter in subsequent modules.

Stop processing after an empty aggregation

Enable this option to stop the scenario when no data is received.


Enter Name and Value.


The name of the Name field in the Schema section must be the same as the name of the Name field in the Values section.


Data Set Configuration Error


If you get this error message, make sure that:

  • You run your Ibexa Connect scenario before performing an action in Google Data Studio.

  • The webhook in your active New Request module matches the webhook URL used in the Ibexa Connect Google Data Studio data source.

Sample scenario

The following scenario will collect data from the Weather > Get Daily Weather Forecast module and will create a chart in the Google Data Studio.


Google Data Studio > New Request module


Weather > Get Daily Weather Forecast module


Google Data Studio > New Response module
