Google Analytics Import: "The developer hasn’t given you access to this app"

I’m trying to import my Google Analytics data into Matomo plugin on my wordpress site, following this guide:
I’ve followed all the steps up to 2.4, when I have to Authorize the Matomo app. After I click the green Authorize button from the Matomo control panel, and I give the google prompt my login credentials, it gives me a 403 error, saying:

Error 403: access_denied

The developer hasn’t given you access to this app. It’s currently being tested and it hasn’t been verified by Google. If you think you should have access, contact the developer (my-email-address@).

There’s no mention of verification in the matomo-guide, and I couldn’t find any info anywhere else. Anybody know what I’m missing?


Hi @aks, sorry you’re experiencing this problem, Google has been fairly consistently changing the oauth configuration workflow. For this you’d have to add your account as a test user which will allow you to authorize. We’ll be updating our guide soon with explicit steps.
