  • Hi Martin,

    You could handle as many domains as you would like from one joint account. And if you would like the domains to 'behave' the same way, you should add them to the same 'domain group'. 
    But unfortunately, you could not link multiple cookiebot accounts to one domain because the domain could be controlled from only one account. 
    If you would like, please explain what is your goal and what you would like to achieve by linking multiple cookiebot accounts to one domain, so I could try to help you.

    Regards,

    I could try to clarify this from my perspective, working in the IT department of a big organisation with a website that spans almost 100 subdomains.

    There are three groups working on our cookiebot setup: marketing, the legal department, and IT. Working on this project with only one account will surely lead to problems, even with very strict rules about who does what in the cookiebot webinterface. Because opening the setup in different browsers with the same account invariably leads to overwriting each others settings. The only solution now would be to limit the setup to one person who does all the work.

    Not only would I like the option for different accounts to manage the cookiebot settings, but some form of role management would be very nice. In our case, Marketing would help in managing the (large) list of cookies, IT would manage the domains and groups, and Legal could be working on the texts.

    Another problem is the lack of versioning, which in this day and age is just incomprehensible. Whith regard to the possible legal consequences, there should at least be some form of change-tracking.

  • Hi,

    As its mentioned in the above comment you could handle as many domains as you wish from one joint account. And if you would like those domains to 'behave' the same way, you could add them to a 'domain group' and enable bulk consent. 

    Unfortunately, it is not possible yet to separate an account with different strict rules so it could be used form different people (department) with specific role management. Due to popular demand this is considered as a upcoming feature and would be added on the roadmap for future development.

    Until then, it should be possible to create a free/demo/dev account with access to custom templates, so that a design department or agency could develop and test a custom template in their own account without the need to give them access to the companywide accounts.

  • Hi,

    It is possible to add internal domains that you use for testing, development and staging (non-production domains) on local servers with a premium subscription. You can add those domains in the table named "Domain alias" under "Settings" on your Cookiebot account.

    Spas,

    sorry, but this does not help. An alias domain is simply an additional domain where a setup can be used, and that does not change anything about the way the settings are managed.  What I ( and also Peter, above) am talking about is to

    • give limited permissions to certain departments or third parties  (design agency or so) according to their area of expertise or responsibility - so the IT could manage the cookie database, the creative department could work on the design and so on
    • and/or assign limited permissons to manage certain domains or domain groups, so that department A would manage settings for their site A.company.com and department B would have access to the settings for B.company.com ...
    • and to allow versioning, change reviews and rollbacks

    These are issues that should be discussed for the long-term roadmap of cookiebot features. My short term need is to have a designer work on custom templates of one domain group withouth having access to all the other domains and global settings. To solve this I have opened an individual support request.

    Thanks and best regards

    Ulrich

  • Hi Ulrich,

    Thank you for your feedback, it is highly appreciated! 
    Unfortunately, at the moment it is not possible to separate an account with different strict rules so it could be used form different people (department) with specific role management.
    But as mentioned above due to popular demand this is considered as a upcoming feature and would be added on the Cookiebot roadmap for future development.
