We have changed the access points the Google Analytics → Google BigQuery pipelines send website user behavior data to. This was required to ensure your pipelines from losing the ability to collect geographical data about website users.
To avoid this, you need to update the OWOX BI tracking code on your website before January 15. If you will not do this, this pipeline will stop collecting geodata to BigQuery starting from January 15.
Update. We've extended the deadline for the old access point to collect geo-data up to January 31. Please, update the OWOX BI website tracking code before the deadline expires.
Where do I get the new OWOX BI tracking code
Find the new tracking in our Help Center: click on the link and select the article that covers the tracking code implementation that fits your pipeline.

If your pipeline uses two session data collection methods simultaneously
If you have pipelines that use two session data collection methods simultaneously (the deprecated one based on Google Analytics data and the new one based on OWOX BI algorithm), then you need to turn one of them off.
To ensure the new method would keep collecting geodata about website users to the “owoxbi_sessions” tables, you need to update the tracking code on your website as described above and turn off the old session data collection method (“session_streaming” tables).
If you don’t need geodata collected to the “owoxbi_sessions”, turn off session data collection based on the OWOX BI algorithm. The old method will keep collecting geodata to the “session_streaming” tables as usual.
