Google Analytics Reports Definition. The tap uses the default reports definition if this field is not provided. A project-relative path to JSON file with the definition of the reports to be generated.

See https://ga-dev-tools.google/ga4/dimensions-metrics-explorer/ for valid dimensions and metrics.

The JSON structure expected is as follows:

[
  { "name" : "name of stream to be used",
    "dimensions" :
    [
      "Google Analytics Dimension",
      "Another Google Analytics Dimension",
      // ... up to 7 dimensions per stream ...

    [
      "Google Analytics Metric",
      "Another Google Analytics Metric",
      // ... up to 10 metrics per stream ...
    ]
  },
  // ... as many streams / reports as the user wants ...
]

For example, if you want to extract user stats per day in a users_per_day stream and session stats per day and country in a sessions_per_country_day stream:

[
  { "name" : "users_per_day",

    ],
    "metrics" :

  { "name" : "sessions_per_country_day",
    "dimensions" :
    [
