                -- Follow this link to create your tid.

                local tid = 'UA-188032216-1'

                ga.collect(tid, cid, uip)
    
                -- Follow this link to create custom dimensions and custom metrics.
                -- https://support.google.com/analytics/answer/2709829?hl=en
                -- Then you can send custom dimensions and custom metrics like this.
                --ga.collect(tid, cid, uip, true)
            }
        }
    }

Methods

collect

syntax: ga.collect(tid, cid, uip, send_cd_and_cm)

Collect current request's log and push to cache. It's better to call this method during log phase`log_by_lua_*`.

tid is your google analytics tracking id. Please be aware that this is a Universal Analytics property rather than a Google Analytics 4 property. Follow this link to create a tracking id.

cid is google analytics client id.

uip is google analytics client ip address.

send_cd_and_cm is used to deside whether to send custom dimensions and custom metrics to google analytics. Custom dimensions and custom metrics must be created in google analytics's admin dashboard before setting this parameter to true. Also custom dimensions and custom metrics must be created in the following order:

| Custom Dimensions | Index | Scope | |-------------------|-------|-------| | Status Code | 1 | HIT | | Content Type | 2 | HIT | | Cache Status | 3 | HIT | | Http Method | 4 | HIT |

| Custom Metrics | Index | Scope | Format Type | |----------------|-------|-------|-------------| | Content Length | 1 | HIT | Integer | | Response Time | 2 | HIT | Integer |

send

syntax: ga.send(premature)

Pop all request logs and send to google analytics server. It's better to use timer to call this method in privileged agent every 1s.
