Error "You do not have permission..." Connecting to Google Analytics
Published: 24 Oct 2013 Last Modified Date: 22 Apr 2014
When you try to connect to Google Analytics from Tableau Desktop or refresh an existing connection, the following error might occur intermittently:
You do not have permission to perform the requested operation.
One of the following steps should resolve the issue.
Reduce the frequency of Google Analytics extract refreshes. For example, if extracts are refreshing every 15 minutes, schedule refreshes for every hour instead. For more information, see Schedule Refreshes & Subscriptions in Tableau Help.
Work with Google to change the number of allowed API requests per day or per second.
The API requests have exceeded the limit allowed by Google Analytics; as a result, the Google Analytics account has been locked.
