Test vendor list additions consent gate option

Vendor list additions is a possible option when configuring GDPR and/or U.S. Multi-State Privacy consent gates for your message scenarios. By using this option for either of these consent gates, your organization is deciding to surface a particular message whenever new vendors have been added to the vendor list since the last time the end-user consented to all vendors on the vendor list. That is, this option is used to request consent for the newly added vendors.

In this article, we will cover the different ways you can test the vendor list additions consent gate option.

Manually test vendor list additions

In order to test this configuration manually, your organization can perform the following:

  1. Collect consent for an end-user on your web property
  2. Add a new vendor to the vendor list associated with the web property
  3. Refresh the web page*
  4. Test to see if message appears to collect consent (ensure newly added vendor appears in the privacy manager)

  *Note: Be aware that it can take up to 30 minutes before the CDN cache is cleared and your changes are reflected.

Test vendor list additions via query string

Alternatively, Sourcepoint provides a query string parameter that your organization can append to the web property's URL which will simulate a newly added vendor to your vendor list (eliminating the need to actually add a new vendor to your vendor list).

To simulate a newly added vendor to your vendor list when accessing a web property, include the query string parameter ?_sp_vendor_list_additions to your URL and set the value to true


When the query string parameter is detected, Sourcepoint servers will act as if there is a new vendor on the vendor list and serve your configured message (if all other conditions are met in your scenario step).
