I am getting the error:

Refused to load the script 'https://www.google-analytics.com/analytics.js' because it violates the following Content Security Policy directive:

It is expected behavior according to the documentation:

The framework uses Content Security Policy (CSP) to control the source of content that can be loaded on a page

Are there any workarounds to apply google analytics to lightning app?


Here is the code to include the tracking code:

    <ltng:require scripts="/resource/styles/js/jquery.min.2.1.4.js,

and here is the google analytics tracking code which is placed in the google.analytics.js:

    (i[r].q=i[r].q||[]).push(arguments)},i[r].l=1*new Date();a=s.createElement(o),

    ga('create', 'UA-XXXX-Y', 'auto', {
        'allowLinker': true
    ga('require', 'linkid', 'linkid.js');
    ga('require', 'linker');
    ga('linker:autoLink', [/instance(\.|--)(.)*\.(salesforce|force)\.com/]);
    ga('send', 'pageview');

The problem is that inclusion of //www.google-analytics.com/analytics.js fails due to CSP.

  • can you share the code on how you are referring the scripts in your component or app Jun 18, 2015 at 2:21

This is as per the security policies .Any JS code or external libraries need to be in static resource .

you will need to use ltng:require tag for same .

Please see below blog


The below shows how to load files from static resource to lightning component

  • @ Mohith, Thanks for your response. google tracking code is in static resources and included through require but tracking code js tries to include extrenal google-analytics.com/analytics.js itself and lightning doesn't allow to load this analytics.js

So I just got a test event working!

I included the analytics.js file as a static resource, and in the connection code that google provides, I updated it to use that static resource as well:

  (i[r].q=i[r].q||[]).push(arguments)},i[r].l=1*new Date();a=s.createElement(o),

My resource is called simply ga.
