We need to exploit Google Analytics data. We found several documents and blogs, but they're all quite 'old'. The SAS Support team indicated that a lot changed in the meantime and that these articles are outdated. They suggest to work with PYTHON.
Does anybody have some examples of this?
Note: the solution should run on Linux 9.3. 'Plan B' is to run it on Windows.

You did not mention what SAS tools/products you have. Most modern presentations that I have seen on this topic use a tool such as SAS Visual Analytics.

We do not have Visual Analytics
We do have the 'traditional' SAS/EIP platform (with SAS/DI, IMap, Web Report Studio, OLAP Cubes etc.)

Coming back to this because now with PROC HTTP and the JSON libname engine, it's possible to fetch Google Analytics data via Base SAS code. This does require SAS 9.4m4.
High level steps:
