Google Analytics API: How to pull accounts, getting listManagementAccounts() on non-object error

EDIT - this tutorial (although almost like the tutorial by google) was what finally made things work: http://teev.io/blog/google-analytics-api-php

I'm trying to follow the tutorial that's mentioned here:
https://developers.google.com/analytics/devguides/reporting/core/v3/quickstart/service-php

I've followed all of the steps:


  1. Created a project.

  2. Created a Service account.
    (when prompted for JSON or P12, I chose JSON)

  3. I ran
    composer require google/apiclient:^2.0
    in putty and updated my composer.json file.

  4. Placed my
    service-account-credentials.json
    file that I just downloaded into folder
    /public_html

  5. Created file
    HelloAnalytics.php
    and placed it into
    /public_html
    folder.



HelloAnalytics.php :

<?php

// Load the Google API PHP Client Library.
require_once '/home/user/vendor/autoload.php';

$analytics = initializeAnalytics();
$profile = getFirstProfileId($analytics);
$results = getResults($analytics, $profile);
printResults($results);

function initializeAnalytics()
{
// Creates and returns the Analytics Reporting service object.

// Use the developers console and download your service account
// credentials in JSON format. Place them in this directory or
// change the key file location if necessary.
$KEY_FILE_LOCATION = __DIR__ . '/service-account-credentials.json';

// Create and configure a new client object.
$client = new Google_Client();
$client->setApplicationName("Hello Analytics Reporting");
$client->setAuthConfig($KEY_FILE_LOCATION);
$client->setScopes(['https://www.googleapis.com/auth/analytics.readonly']);
$analytics = new Google_Service_AnalyticsReporting($client);

return $analytics;
}

function getFirstProfileId($analytics) {
// Get the user's first view (profile) ID.

// Get the list of accounts for the authorized user.
$accounts = $analytics->management_accounts->listManagementAccounts();

if (count($accounts->getItems()) > 0) {
$items = $accounts->getItems();
$firstAccountId = $items[0]->getId();

// Get the list of properties for the authorized user.
$properties = $analytics->management_webproperties
->listManagementWebproperties($firstAccountId);

if (count($properties->getItems()) > 0) {
$items = $properties->getItems();
$firstPropertyId = $items[0]->getId();

// Get the list of views (profiles) for the authorized user.
$profiles = $analytics->management_profiles
->listManagementProfiles($firstAccountId, $firstPropertyId);

if (count($profiles->getItems()) > 0) {
$items = $profiles->getItems();

// Return the first view (profile) ID.
return $items[0]->getId();

} else {
throw new Exception('No views (profiles) found for this user.');
}
} else {
throw new Exception('No properties found for this user.');
}
} else {
throw new Exception('No accounts found for this user.');
}
}

function getResults($analytics, $profileId) {
// Calls the Core Reporting API and queries for the number of sessions
// for the last seven days.
return $analytics->data_ga->get(
'ga:' . $profileId,
'7daysAgo',
'today',
'ga:sessions');
}

function printResults($results) {
// Parses the response from the Core Reporting API and prints
// the profile name and total sessions.
if (count($results->getRows()) > 0) {

// Get the profile name.
$profileName = $results->getProfileInfo()->getProfileName();

// Get the entry for the first entry in the first row.
$rows = $results->getRows();
$sessions = $rows[0][0];

// Print the results.
print "First view (profile) found: $profileName\n";
print "Total sessions: $sessions\n";
} else {
print "No results found.\n";
}
}


Which sadly produces this error:


Fatal error: Call to a member function listManagementAccounts() on a non-object in....


Any advice on how to actually get this to work?

Answer

Your code is using the old v1-master branch code, but you are trying to use composer require google/apiclient:^2.0.

Update your code to match that given in the link you provided:

<?php

// Load the Google API PHP Client Library.
require_once __DIR__ . '/vendor/autoload.php';

$analytics = initializeAnalytics();
$profile = getFirstProfileId($analytics);
$results = getResults($analytics, $profile);
printResults($results);
