Google Analytics Stopped Working

I have Google Analytics set-up with Metabse. I have noticed this stopped working the last 2 days ago. Nothing has changed from the set-up point of view. Does anyone know maybe Google has chnaged something from GA side?

Hi @asimumba
Just saying “stopped working” doesn’t provide a lot of information.
So which errors do you see in Admin > Troubleshooting > Logs?
Did it happen, when you upgraded to 0.36.0?

Actually, this happened before the upgrade. I upgraded trying to see if the issue was version specific. When I trying to re-add the GA connection, it is timing out at 5 sec. And the logs in my Google Console have flattened, indicating no hits are being generated.

@asimumba Firewall or something else blocking would be my guess.
You can try setting a higher connection timeout, but since it used to work, I doubt that it going to make a difference:
