Customize the preferences popup

The "Preferences" pop-in allows the user to manage his or her preferences in terms of consent given by purpose and by vendor. By default, it is shown when the user clicks on "Learn more" in the notice (banner or popin) and we recommend adding a link in your app to open it.

You can customize the texts from that screen.

Purposes

Order of purposes

You can control how purposes should be displayed, such as preferred order, icons, etc.

This can be done by adding an array of purposes in the preferences.categories property in the didomi_config.json file. The order in which items are added to this array will be the same order in which purposes will be displayed in based on their purposeId.

Purposes that are required by some vendors and that are not included in the list will be appended to the end of the list in alphabetical order to make sure that all required purposes are displayed and that consent is correctly collected.

didomi_config.json
{
"preferences": {
"categories": [{
"type": "purpose",
"purposeId": "cookies",
"icon": "PurposeIcon1"
}, {
"type": "purpose",
"purposeId": "advertising_personalization",
"icon": "PurposeIcon2"
}, {
"type": "purpose",
"purposeId": "ad_delivery",
"icon": "PurposeIcon3"
}]
}
}

preferences.categories[index].purposeId

Purpose ID to be displayed in that position. See Vendors and purposes for a list of available purposes.

preferences.categories[index].icon

Categories of purposes

Purposes having a similar functionality can be optionally grouped into categories. This could be useful for better clarity of the purposes screen.

To group purposes into categories, preferences.categories configuration option in the Didomi configuration could be used:

didomi_config.json
{
"preferences": {
"categories": [
{
"id": "category-id",
"type": "category",
"name": {
"en": "Category name"
},
"description": {
"en": "Category description"
},
"children": [
{
"type": "purpose",
"purposeId": "cookies"
}
]
}
]
}
}

Purposes that are required by some vendors and that are not included in one of the specified categories will be appended to the end of the purposes list in alphabetical order so that all required purposes are displayed and that consent is correctly collected for them.

Each category has the following configuration keys:

Configuration Key

Display when consent is missing

If you want to bypass the notice and display the Preferences popup directly when consent is missing, you can set the property preferences.showWhenConsentIsMissing to true. When that is configured, you also need to disable the regular notice to ensure that it will not be displayed by setting notice.enable to false.

didomi_config.json
{
"notice": {
"enable": false
},
"preferences": {
"showWhenConsentIsMissing": true
}
}

Prevent the popup from being closed when consent is missing

By default, the Preferences popup can be closed at any time, even if the user has not made a choice for some purposes. You can choose to hide the "X" icon and disallow closing the popup until the user has expressed a choice for every purpose by setting canCloseWhenConsentIsMissing to false.

didomi_config.json
{
"preferences": {
"canCloseWhenConsentIsMissing": false
}
}

Allow the Agree to all and Disagree to all buttons to be disabled until the user scrolls to the bottom of the screen

By adding the disableButtonsUntilScroll flag into the preferences section of the config file and setting it to true, the Agree to all and Disagree to all buttons of the Purposes view will be blocked/disabled until the user scrolls to the bottom of the screen in order to see all the purposes.

Configuration key

Type

Description

preferences.disableButtonsUntilScroll

Boolean

If true, Agree to all and disagree to all buttons will be disabled until the user scrolls to the bottom. If false or not present, the buttons will not be blocked.

didomi_config.json
{
"preferences": {
"disableButtonsUntilScroll": true
}
}

"Disagree to all" behavior

By default, "Disagree to all" option on preferences screen applies to both consent and legitimate interest. This means that after "Disagree to all" was selected, all purposes and vendors will be disabled, for both consent and legitimate interest data processing.

This behavior can be controlled by setting the denyAppliesToLI property. When set to false, selecting "Disagree to all" will disable only consent based data processing. Legitimate interest purposes will stil be enabled, as well as legitimate interest based data processing for all vendors.

didomi_config.json
{
"preferences": {
"denyAppliesToLI": false
}
}
