Preferences Library
A preferences library is a set of re-usable preferences.
Each preference created in the preferences library can be used several times in the configuration tree allowing a more granular choice to be offered to the user for given purposes.
A collection of preferences facilitates analysis of user's choices made on your widgets.

Preferences

A Preference is an opportunity to collect information about user's intentions, motivations and interests.
Each preference has several choices (values) and can be added to one or multiple purpose(s) to offer a more granular choice to the user.
Preferences should match with different marketing use cases. Some examples:
  • Topic and content choices
  • Frequency options
  • Custom customer data questions
  • Privacy policies, programmes and certifications
  • Access to privacy rights information

Values

A value is a string and is always linked to a preference. When you create a preference, you create a list of values from where the user will be able to choose from.
You can see the preference as the question and the value as one of the answer to that question.

Create a preference

To add a preference in your Preferences Library, send a POST request on /preferences.
POST https://api.didomi.io/preferences?organization_id=YOUR_ORG_ID
{
"name": {
"en": "String"
},
"description": {
"en": "String"
},
/**
* single: users will be able to make only one choice for this preference
* multi: users will be able to make multiple choices for this preference
*/
"type": "single || multi",
"values": [
{
"name": {
"en": "String"
}
},
{
"name": {
"en": "String"
}
}
]
}
Didomi does not support translations. Only en key will be accepted when creating or editing a new preference.
