Hello there! You are receiving this message because none of your fellow community members has stepped in to respond to your topic post. (If you are a community member and you are reading this response, feel free to jump in if you have the answer!) As a result, the Community Assistance Team has been made aware of this topic and will be investigating and responding as quickly as possible.
Some important considerations that will help your to get your issue solved faster:

  • It is best to use our topic creation template; if you haven’t yet, we recommend posting a followup with the requested information. With that information the team will be able to more quickly search for similar issues with connectors and the platform and troubleshoot more quickly your specific question or problem.
  • Make sure to upload the complete log file; a common investigation roadblock is that sometimes the error for the issue happens well before the problem is surfaced to the user, and so having the tail of the log is less useful than having the whole log to scan through.
  • Be as descriptive and specific as possible; when investigating it is extremely valuable to know what steps were taken to encounter the issue, what version of connector / platform / Java / Python / docker / k8s was used, etc. The more context supplied, the quicker the investigation can start on your topic and the faster we can drive towards an answer.
  • We in the Community Assistance Team are glad you’ve made yourself part of our community, and we’ll do our best to answer your questions and resolve the problems as quickly as possible. Expect to hear from a specific team member as soon as possible.

Thank you for your time and attention.
Best,

Hey @danieldiamond I will look into this get back.

@harshith this siteEntry error is also occurring when trying to use the OAuth credentials

Possible offending line added 2 days ago

Confirming when I revert to GSC version 0.1.14 I dont experience this siteEntry Key error.

However, I think this is a misleading error. I believe the credentials I was inputting were invalid, I have managed to successfully connect now with both old and new versions.

Got it. Thanks a lot for checking this out.

Hey,

I am on Airbyte 0.40.16 with connector version 0.1.18.

I do get the same error message:

The connection tests failed.
"Unable to connect to Google Search Console API with the provided credentials - KeyError('siteEntry')"

I am using an existing service account that I have setup for Google Ads. I grant it “Domain-wide Delegation ” via the Workspace Admin Console. Then I create a new key and use the service account’s email address together with the new JSON key in the Auth.

Was the issue resolved?

Hey as pointed out by Daniel maybe not. Could you create a github issue on this so that team can fix it?

Well if Daniel is correct than I would need some help/guidance in figuring out what is going on.
Maybe the “Setup Guide” could be revised?

In the meantime I have created a github issue:
