How To Reuse Google Analytics For Firebase Event Parameters

Issue

In Firestore Analytics I am unable to re-use custom unique text event parameters created.

Attempted Solution

Per the Firebase guidelines10 textual custom event parameters may be used. In the Firebase console it specifies these parameters can be unique: You can have up to 10 unique text parameters..

enter image description here

For my event named Archived I have defined 7 custom text parameters as seen below: content_type, creator, feed_type, item_id, item_name, quality_score, and timestamp.

I am unable to re-use the same 7 custom text parameters in the event named SAVED. These event parameters should not be counted as unique since they are exactly as defined in the first event ARCHIVED. enter image description here

Answer

The documentation does not imply that you should be able to re-use them. If you could, then you could simply make 10 generic parameters and use them for every event. I do agree that it's very limiting, but they are trying to push users to connect their Firebase instance with BigQuery.

I suggest that you do just this and analyse your custom parameters from there as I am unaware of any way to bypass the 10 parameter limit. For us there has been no downside to connecting with BigQuery, even with millions of users it has cost us nothing/close to nothing.
