Google Analytics for EPiServer 7


Using a MVC site with EPiServer 7.1 and up to Patch 2


I am unable to see Google Analytics in the CMS - Admin - Tools list?


I have added via Add ons and it has installed/modified the following:

  • AppData\Modules\
    • EPiServer.GoogleAnalytics
    • Google.Apis
    • Google.Apis.Analytics.v3
    • Newtonsoft.Json.Net35


<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<package id="CMS" version="2.0.79" />
<package id="EPiServer.GoogleAnalytics" version="" />
<package id="EPiServer.Packaging" version="2.0.86" />
<package id="EPiServer.Packaging.UI" version="2.0.86" />
<package id="Google.Apis" version="1.2.4675" />
<package id="Google.Apis.Analytics.v3" version="1.2.4675" />
<package id="Newtonsoft.Json.Net35" version="" />
<package id="Shell" version="2.0.86" />


  • AppData\ModulesRepository\
    • EPiServer.GoogleAnalytics.
    • Google.Apis.1.2.4675
    • Google.Apis.Analytics.v3.1.2.4675
    • Newtonsoft.Json.Net35.
  • [site root]\modulesbin\
    • EPiServer.GoogleAnalytics.dll
    • Google.Apis.Analytics.v3.dll
    • Google.Apis.Authentication.OAuth2.dll
    • Google.Apis.dll
    • Newtonsoft.Json.Net35.dll


The site was built apon the Alloy MVC so don’t know if this is causing issues as it was an issue to get updated to 7.1

Are there any configuration files that need modifying for this to work so it appears in the Admin / Tools list?

The gadget is available in dashboard and when signed in it works fine, but I cannot set account via 'Admin - Tools - Google Analytics'

Try to add this to your EPiServerFramework.config in VirtualRoles -> Providers :

<add name="GoogleAnalyticsAdministrators" type="EPiServer.Security.MappedRole, EPiServer" roles="[YOUR ROLES]" mode="Any"/>
