Google My Business has decided to deprecate the Location Insights endpoint that ChannelMix was using to create the v_google_my_business_location_insights dataset with a hard sunset date on 2023-02-20.
In addition to this change, Google My Business made similar data available through the Location Daily Performance endpoint. This data is not a one for one replacement of the Location Insights data and, as such, will be provided in ChannelMix as a new dataset named v_google_my_business_location_daily_performance. You can find more information about which fields are included in this dataset here.
In order to prepare you for these changes, ChannelMix will stop pulling data from the Location Insights endpoint on 2023-02-17. Your existing dataset will be retained in your database, but data will stop being refreshed as of this date. ChannelMix will activate the v_google_my_business_location_daily_performance dataset and backfill it to 2022-01-01 by end of day on 2023-02-17 for any clients who are currently using the v_google_my_business_location_insights dataset.
The GMB deprecation schedule says this API will sunset on 3/20/23, not in February. I am glad you are ahead of schedule, but this was not a lot of notice for user that create their own reports and need to remap. Are the data pulls for v_google_my_business_location_insights stopping today, or is this just a misprint?
Hi Rachel! We apologize for the frustrations on this change. The sunset date has very recently been pushed back a month by Google. We're updating everything to continue to pull from the current API until 03-17-2023. We hope this provides more runway to make the updates that need to be made. Please reach out if you have any additional questions or concerns. Thank you!
