Will Cloud WAF affect Google Analytics on my site

No, Cloud WAF will not affect Google Analytics. Google Analytics works by inserting a piece of Javascript into your web pages. This Javascript interacts with the Google servers. When visitors come to your site, they interact with the Google servers. Since Cloud WAF does not sit between the Google servers and your visitor, we have no effect on Google Analytics. Instead, Cloud WAF sits between your visitor and web server. So, the Cloud WAF connecting IP matters for any programs that read logs directly from your web server (like awstats).
