ResolutionVerify the fields exist in Google's Core Reporting API. For more information, see Query Explorer in Google Analytics Demos & Tools.
CauseTableau Desktop will only display dimensions and measures that are available in Google's Core reporting API.
Additional InformationSome metrics may not appear to be available because they are defined as a calculation based on metrics that are available.
- For example, the metric "Pages/Session" (ga:pageviewsPerSession) does not appear in Tableau Desktop; however, this metric is defined as ga:pageviews / ga:sessions, both of which are available metrics.
- Tableau Desktop functionality allows for the flexibility to create metrics that aggregate this ratio in different ways, such as SUM(ga:pageviews)/SUM(ga:sessions), SUM(ga:pageviews / ga:sessions), or the use of other aggregations, such as AVG.
More information on the available Google Analytics dimensions and measures can be found in the below page maintained by Google:
