Hi, i'm trying to run this script but its giving a error
Fatal error: Call to undefined method Google_Client::useApplicationDefaultCredentials() in /home/user/public_html/HelloAnalytics.php on line 11 please help.

Hi, thanks for this. I found the link to it via your blog. Is there a way to automate this step: "Use this email address to add a user to the Google analytics account you want to access via the API" ? I'm allowing people to connect their accounts on my website and give me permission to access Analytics.
