    With a brand new transformation and a Google Analytics step using the new OAuth credentials, I get the error below when trying to run the transformation (no other steps besides the GA step). After selecting the key file and entering the OAuth Service Email, I can click Get Profiles and get a list of GA profiles. The connection and credentials are clearly working, unlike with my old transformation that was using GA's deprecated API key connection. Even at log level=Row Level, I don't get any more debugging information beyond what's below. 2015/06/10 13:42:51 - Spoon - Transformation opened. 2015/06/10 13:42:51 - Spoon - Launching transformation [test]... 2015/06/10 13:42:51 - Spoon - Started the transformation execution. 2015/06/10 13:42:51 - test - Dispatching started for transformation [test] 2015/06/10 13:42:51 - Basic Metrics by Page.0 - ERROR (version 5.4.0.0-128, build 1 from 2015-06-03_13-41-59 by buildguy) : Error initializing step [Basic Metrics by Page] 2015/06/10 13:42:51 - test - ERROR (version 5.4.0.0-128, build 1 from 2015-06-03_13-41-59 by buildguy) : Step [Basic Metrics by Page.0] failed to initialize! 2015/06/10 13:42:51 - Spoon - ERROR (version 5.4.0.0-128, build 1 from 2015-06-03_13-41-59 by buildguy) : test: preparing transformation execution failed 2015/06/10 13:42:51 - Spoon - ERROR (version 5.4.0.0-128, build 1 from 2015-06-03_13-41-59 by buildguy) : org.pentaho.di.core.exception.KettleException: 2015/06/10 13:42:51 - Spoon - We failed to initialize at least one step.
