Known issues and workarounds
Please take into account our advice and known limitations
- If you are installing more APIs from Google, install it all first and then restart your machine. After a new API installation, you may have to restart the machine to get the entries correct and runnable for the PowerShell-Script.
- In older versions of the Layer2 Cloud Connector (7.8 -7.20) Pop-ups don’t work anymore. If you try to connect to the Google API’s you will get a 500 Error, once the API needs the confirmation from the user account. The "Preview Data" functionality is not working automatically in this szenario in the versions (7.8 -7.20). You can make it work, if you bypass the authentication through the pop-up. Here is a PowerShell script workaround for the preview data functionality for your Google Analytics data integration.
