These metrics will no longer be available in the new Performance API:
ALL
QUERIES_DIRECT
QUERIES_INDIRECT
QUERIES_CHAIN
PHOTOS_VIEWS_MERCHANT
PHOTOS_VIEWS_CUSTOMERS
PHOTOS_COUNT_MERCHANT
PHOTOS_COUNT_CUSTOMERS
LOCAL_POST_VIEWS_SEARCH
LOCAL_POST_ACTIONS_CALL_TO_ACTION
These metrics have been renamed (or split) in the new Performance API:
VIEWS_MAPS
BUSINESS_IMPRESSIONS_DESKTOP_MAPS
BUSINESS_IMPRESSIONS_MOBILE_MAPS
VIEWS_SEARCH
BUSINESS_IMPRESSIONS_DESKTOP_SEARCH
BUSINESS_IMPRESSIONS_MOBILE_SEARCH
ACTIONS_WEBSITE
WEBSITE_CLICKS
ACTIONS_PHONE
CALL_CLICKS
ACTIONS_DRIVING_DIRECTIONS
BUSINESS_DIRECTION_REQUESTS

Looks like photo views is now officially not a metric. I understand that photos help with engagement but will it be as relevant since Google no longer is tracking the metrics around it. I always encourage clients to upload photos or make sure we are uploading new photos monthly. Showing them the photos views was always a great way to show them that it is relevant.

Yes, I got that message too.

It's a shame they're retiring the photos, but there's also good news. The API will provide keywords that most often displayed the profile, i.e. what we have in the GMB panel.

Finally!

Doesn't the new performances do that since the start? Or am missing something, cause these metrics don't even seem to mention keywords.

We have access to all other GBP API but I activated the Business Profile Performance API and our quota is 0.

We applied 2 months ago to increase the quota, but it's pending.

Have you had access to the Performance API?

How did you do?

We had to wait more than two months for our quota increase request to be granted. But in the end, it was granted.

Happy New Year all, we submitted API access request months ago, and have no response. After reading the string below, it appears the wait is par for the course. Any tips on how to get access?

Hello! I was wondering if anyone else has run into issues with dramatic decreases in the number of views for Search & Maps? We were looking at report data from November 2022 for an enterprise client that has about 200 locations, and their combined Google Views on Search and Maps was 1,329,034 views.

Since implementing the Performance API and the new endpoints, the number for the same date range dropped to 331,271 views. I submitted a ticket to Google Business Profile API Support but figured I'd ask the community if they're run into any similar issues. Thanks!
