#StackBounty: #google-analytics #tracking Google Analytics 'Appears' to be ignoring campaign attribution

Bounty: 50

I’m using universal analytics with the userId feature.

I create a new clean browser session and hit my site with the following
parameters set:

https://www.example.com/?utm_source=mysource&utm_medium=mymedium&utm_campaign=mycampaign&utm_term=myterm&utm_content=mycontent

In short, a userId is generated, stored in a cookie, and analytics is loaded and a pageview hit sent with the userId attached.

I see correct attribution for source/medium/campaign in the real time view.

However, later, when I use the “User Explorer” inside Analytics to
inspect the session with above userId, I see the Campaign value set to
“mycampaign”, which is correct, but Source/Medium is set to “(not set)”

Should Source/Medium not be set to something like “mysource/mymedium” ?

Any advice would be appreciated
