If my email ID is added as a property owner of a website in Google Search Console and if I am an admin user of the same website in Google Analytics, will I be able to link the Search Console & Analytics accounts? Because, I was getting an error message while trying to do so saying that I must have edit permissions to the property in Search Console. Doesn't making me owner by delegation also give me edit permissions?

  • Same problem. I think it is a bug but not sure. Even the GA account i created i keep getting this error.

These edit permissions refer to Google Analytics permissions, not Search Console permissions. Check that you have those.
