    Hey Birgit,

    The problem is most likely due to the fact that you have already installed different consent solution that supports prior consent, the scanner cannot by standard give a consent and thereby "release" all cookies that can then be detected.
    To work around this, you can configure a ”custom cookie” from the Manager (when you are logged on to your account) that results in a full consent. As an example (which depends on the particular consent solution in place) you would create a cookie named ”cookie_notice_accepted” and the value ”true”. This cookie will then be used as a standard by the scanner on all page requests resulting in all cookies being set and indexed by the scanner. just a guess... 

    For the necessary cookies you don't need to add the attribute "data-cookieconsent". If you have categorized them in the Cookiebot manager as necessary this will be enough. What this will do is show the specific cookie in the Cookie declaration page as necessary in order your site to work properly and you don't have to ask for prior consent from the user for these types of cookies.

    Then clicking the “Scan domain now” button, which you will find in the “Cookies” menu of the Cookiebot Manager and see after the scan is ready if things are fixed.

    Hope some this will help you resolve your issue.

    Kind Regards.

    i'm facing a similiar problem on one of my manual scans.

    The report shows nothing but the cookieconsent cookie even though the site uses a googlemaps iframe and shows several cookies if i browse it.

    Another domain is missing the google cookies aswell, but detects more than just the cookieconsent cookie.

    I tried the solution above - still the same issue.

    Any further ideas on this?

    Thanks alot!

    I do not have installed any different consent solution.

    And I also tried the solution above - still the same issue /see comment of Lars Broll).

    Anybody out there with any idea?

    Kind regards!

    Hi Birgit

    Your website does not set any cookies.

    When you look at cookies in your browser you will see the cookies accessible to the website, not necessarily the cookies being set.

    Because you load the youtube iframe api from, Youtube has access to the cookies matching their domain. These are cookies you have picked up from other sites.

    If you visit your website in incognito mode you will see no cookies other then the cookie consent is being set.
