Event Configuration for Google Analytics 4

How to register events from Ruler in GA4


Please note

GA4 isn't visitor level so it cannot be relied upon in the same way to report on conversion data in the same way as UA. While Ruler is able to send events to GA4, there are limitations on which Google reports this data is available in.

Due to data thresholding, we would recommend to use the 'Device-Based' reporting identity in GA4 to be able to review and report on the Ruler sent events. (Admin > Reporting Identity > View all)

When creating the events in Analytics, this will depend on the event/s you are sending from Ruler Analytics, please only set up the events you wish Ruler to send.

Please note Ruler will require the following variables from your account to set up the event trigger.

Measurement IDPlease see Googles guide on where to find your measurement id here.
Google API Secret KeyYour API Secret key can be found by going to GA4 > Admin > Data Streams > Select your stream.

Under additional settings select Measurement Protocol API Secrets.

You can either copy an API key you already have for that stream or create a new one called Ruler Events.
