Getting Cost Per Action on Action Type Breakdown

Is there away to do this? When I try I get this message error message:

"Community connector error: Invalid field combination: spend or action rate can't be fetched when splitting by action dimensions (action_type), only actions or action values can be fetched; IllegalDimensionMetricCombinationException (Supermetrics request ID: eC8xWB_F_FhutiiCfkVUU3EqlNM7hCGC). If the problem persists report an issue with the connector owner."

I'm trying to get the cost of a specific offsite.conversion but it collectively lumps all custom conversions with the the type of "lead" together.

Any help with be greafully appreciated 
  • Hi Ryan,

    There's an alternative field set that may work here. Try:

    Dimension = Conversion Specs

    Metric = Website Custom Conversions 


    This will show what the actions are and is compatible with the other fields you want to fetch.

    This can also help you crack what source those leads are from.

  • Hi!

    The above said Dimension fetches data about custom conversions. 

    I am stuck in similar issue where I want all the 'action types' and their 'costs' in tabular form. so the dimensions I want to use are Action Type, Actions and Amount Spend 
    I would also like to add date Dimension to split that data on daily level.
    but when I put Action Type, Actions and Amount spend in the table, I get this error : "Community connector error: Invalid field combination: spend or action rate can't be fetched when splitting by action dimensions (action_type), only actions or action values can be fetched; IllegalDimensionMetricCombinationException"

    How do I deal with this?

  • Hi,


    You need to use the specific fields for those conversion actions rather than "Actions"/"Action Type" instead (either the standards like Website Leads, Website purchases, etc., or the custom conversion fields, they will be listed in the field list as the same name they have in your Facebook Ad Manager). Note that the standards tend to already have their own cost per conversion fields, but the custom conversions do not. 


    Otherwise, you need to use data blending to work around this as noted in this article:
