Google Analytics API sends ga:transactionid as a string although parses it as an integer

Hello All!
I faced an issue, while doing the report via BI: Failed to parse data 'B10109393939' for column Transaction id.

I tried to fix it by applying a filter

"dimensionFilterClauses": [
"filters" : [
"dimensionName" : "ga:transactionid",
"expressions": [

But it didn't help me much, because the goal is to include all transaction IDs and then transform Transaction id column to the string type.

Could anyone let me know how to change the ga:transactionid dimension request so that it won't be parsed as an integer?

Thank you very much!

    Hi @user16346 

    Is it possible for your GA instance to contain transaction IDs which start with a character or should it be assumed that it's always going to be a number?
