Assigning a consent to an application

Learn how to assign any consent to an application and choose which consent type to apply.


Once a consent is assigned to an application, it will take immediate effect for that application. Any new customers who self-register or use social login will be subject to any consents that you have set in place. Customers with existing accounts will also be prompted on their next login with new mandatory consents.

To assign a consent to an existing application, take the following steps.

If you have not created any Consents or an Application see the following guides. You will need to create at least one consent and one application before continuing with assigning a consent to an application.

1) Log in to the Admin Console using your admin account.

2) From the left-hand menu, select Applications.

3) From the list of applications that you have configured, click the application that you wish to edit. The Edit Application screen will be displayed.

4) Scroll down to Consent Management, click the + Add Consent button

5) After clicking + Add Consent, any consent that you've already created will be displayed.

6) Once you've selected which existing consent to add to the application, the drop-down list on the right can be used to choose the consent type that will be assigned to the consent.
