Legacy OTT message

   Permission: Campaign entities

Legacy OTT messages combine the first layer message and privacy manager into a single setup, and introduces the concept of views to the configuration process. Configuration for a Legacy OTT message is distinct from other property types to account for navigation of the consent experience by an end-user via remote control. 

Click Messages on the left-hand panel and select a regulatory regime (GDPR Messages or U.S. Privacy Messages (Legacy)).

Click Legacy OTT from either subsequent menu.

Create Legacy OTT message

Click + New Message to create a new Legacy OTT message.


Use the subsequent page to customize the Legacy OTT message for the property and click Create Message when finished. In the following section, we will provide a brief overview of how to navigate the Legacy OTT message builder.

Navigate Legacy OTT message builder

  Note: Sourcepoint recommends that you begin the configuration of the Legacy OTT message from a template.

In this section, we will cover the basic layout of the Legacy OTT message builder and how to customize components.

The Legacy OTT message is divided into distinct views that an end-user can navigate between on their Legacy OTT device via their remote control. These views are dependent on the regulatory framework to which the message belongs. 

Use the Navigate Views panel in the upper left-hand corner of the builder to access any of the views. 

GDPR TCF U.S. Privacy
  • Privacy Manager OTT - Home View
  • Vendors View
  • Categories View
  • Vendor/Category Details View
  • Privacy Policy View
  • Custom View


Configure general settings for the Legacy OTT message from the Settings tab with no individual component selected.

From the Privacy Manager OTT Settings tab, ensure that the Vendor List Preview is set to your desired Vendor List.

  Note: This step is not required and only meant to allow for a preview of purposes and vendors while building your Legacy OTT message. Ultimately, the end-user will see the purposes and vendors for the active Vendor List to which you have added the property

While on a particular view in the builder, click + in the toolbar panel to add a new component to the view.

To customize a component in any view, click the component in the builder and use the Settings panel on the right-hand side to customize the details of that component.

  Note: The breadcrumbs will enable you to quickly see which component you are currently editing.

Resurface Legacy OTT message

The Legacy OTT message JavaScript code is a snippet that is added to a property and allows an end-user to resurface a Legacy OTT message. Using this link/button, end-users can directly manage their consent preferences on an ongoing basis. 

Navigate to a Legacy OTT message and locate the ID for the message.

The format of the JavaScript code depends on the regulatory framework to which the Legacy OTT message belongs. Please see the table below for the appropriate formatting:

GDPR TCF U.S. Privacy

Attach the Legacy OTT message JavaScript code to an event handler on your Legacy OTT property. Most organizations who implement the JavaScript code will attach the function to the onclick event of an element.

GDPR TCF U.S. Privacy
<button onclick="window._sp_.gdpr.loadPrivacyManagerOtt(123456)">OTT/CTV GDPR</button>
<a href="javascript:window.sp_.gdpr.loadPrivacyManagerModalOtt(123456);">OTT/CTV GDPR</a>

Privacy check for Legacy OTT message (GDPR TCF)

Privacy check is a checklist provided by Sourcepoint that helps your organization evaluate your configuration for GDPR TCF Legacy OTT message. Each line item in the checklist is intended to cover a necessary requirement to keep your consent experience compliant with current regulations.

  Note: Privacy check for a GDPR TCF OTT/CTV message must be completed before your organization can launch your consent experience in a campaign.

From the Legacy OTT message builder, click Privacy Check in the upper right-hand corner.

Use the subsequent dropdown menu to evaluate your privacy manager so that it satisfies each requirement. Toggle the button to the right of each line item as you finish your evaluation. Click Complete Privacy Check when finished.

  Note: Privacy check is a manual process performed by a member of your organization with appropriate access to the property. Sourcepoint currently does not support programmatic privacy check.
