Google releases a Labs preview of the "Google Analytics Management API," that provides "read-only access to Google Analytics configuration data. Previously, the API returned all the configuration data at once, which in many cases was inefficient if you only needed a subset of data. Now, it consists of 5 new Google Data Feeds that map directly to GAs data model and help developers to request only the data they need. For e.g., it's now easy to get the Profile IDs for a single account or Goal configuration data for only a single Profile," explains Google.
"Management API represents a significant new piece of the GAs developer platform," Google said.
