Google Analytic Connector: Passing Start_date and end_date the input to the API

Hello Experts,

 

I am currently using the Google Analytics (GA) connector to pull data from GA, and combine it with other data source to create the dashboard. 

 

My challenge is I won't be able to pass on the start date and end date parameter via the native connector. My GA dataset is very large and I only need L30days of data, instead of pulling all 6+ years of history every time I click refresh.

 

In my previous company, I was able to use these two parameters in DOMO, but I can't find it in PowerBI.  Can anyone help me here ?

Hi @bubbletao ,

Maybe you can use parameters to specify the date range you want, refer to the following document:
