What happened to my Tracking ID?

App + Web properties use a Measurement ID instead of a Tracking ID.

This help center article is part of the App + Web Property Beta.

App + Web properties are not currently supported in the Analytics app.

  • If you set up an App + Web property with a Web data stream, you have a Measurement ID (which begins with "G-").
  • If you set up a Web property (Web properties have views instead of data streams), you have a Tracking ID (which begins with "UA-").

If you use a content management system that expects a Tracking ID, i.e. "UA-", you need to set up a Web property instead of an App + Web (Apps and Web BETA) property.

Do I have a Measurement ID (G-) or a Tracking ID (UA-)?

  1. Sign in to Analytics.
  2. Click Admin.
  3. In the Account column, check that you have your desired account selected (directly below the "+Create Account" button at the top).
  4. In the Property column, check that you have your desired property selected (directly below the "+Create Property" button at the top).

If you see an "App + Web" label next to the property name, you have a Measurement ID. If you do not see this label, you have a Tracking ID.

Find your Tracking ID (only available in Web properties)

  1. Click Admin.
  2. In the Account column, check that you have your desired account selected (directly below the "+Create Account" button at the top).
  3. In the Property column, check that you have your desired property selected (directly below the "+Create Property" button at the top).
  4. In the Property column, click Tracking Info then Tracking Code.
    If no "Tracking Info" option appears in the Property column, you have an App + Web property with a Measurement ID.
Your Tracking ID appears in the upper left portion of the panel. Your global site tag appears under Website Tracking.
