In a custom metric in Grow, YouTube does not have any “set” reports. Any reports that pull data from YouTube are created using a combination of metrics and dimensions. This makes the reports pretty dynamic, but it also makes it a little tricky to make sense of. Here’s what a YouTube report is made of.
Metrics are measurements of user activity (such as video view counts and likes/dislikes), ad performance, or earnings.
Dimensions are the criteria you use to aggregate data, such as dates or location of a user’s activity. It explains how the metric information will be grouped.
If you want to learn more about report parameters in YouTube, they have a helpful article here that you can reference.
Note: YouTube usually requires max results field and a dimension to sort by. If you are having issues pulling in data try adding those.
