Enabling a cookie compliance banner

You can add a cookie compliance banner to your Developer Portal site by configuring the EU Cookie Compliance module.

You must have administrator access to complete this task.

The EU Cookie Compliance module provides a customizable pop-up notification that informs visitors to your site that cookies are being used. The notification enables your site visitors to find out more about cookies, and to decide not to browse the site if they disagree with using cookies. You can also provide a link from your cookie compliance banner to an internal or external privacy policy. For more information about configuring an internal privacy policy, see Customizing the privacy policy statement.

The EU Cookie Compliance module is enabled by default. The following instructions show you how to configure the notification.

  2. If the administrator dashboard is not displayed, click Manage to display it.
  3. Click Configuration > System > EU Cookie Compliance.

  4. In the SETTINGS section select Enable banner, otherwise the notification does not display.
