11.1 Google Analytics

Websites using Google Analytics must setup their Google Analytics account using at least two VCU domain accounts.

VCU Domain Accounts

A VCU domain account is often an account used when authenticating into VCU applications, such as myVCU; This is usually tied to your eID. This can also include VCU generic accounts, which are accounts made for teams to share (e.g. t4admin@vcu.edu or webservices@vcu.edu).

Importance

In the event that a user leaves the university, it is important to ensure Google Analytics account access is not lost; By requiring at least two VCU domain accounts to have access to the Google Analytics account, this situation can be avoided.

11.2 Google Analytics Account Permissions

Websites using Google Analytics must grant webservices@vcu.edu access to their Google account with "Manage Users" permissions.

Importance

In the event that Google Analytics account access has been lost, granting webservices@vcu.edu access to the Google Analytics account with "Manage Users" permissions allows the Web Services team to restore access.
