Please note that Search Console is sensitive to matching the domain exactly. This is particularly true when connecting it with Google Analytics. If your settings in Google Analytics are for the domain then you’ll need to include both the https and the www in the search console property you share with us. Mismatching domains account for the vast majority of errors.
