Assign Categories

Assign Web Container tags to Consent categories.

Data Governance > Consent Management > Categories (tab ASSIGN TAGS)

Commanders Act TMS tags can be assigned to Consent categories & vendors in following locations.

  • In ASSIGN TAGS tab of Data Governance > Consent Management > Categories.

  • In the EDIT tab of TMS Commanders Act.

This section is only available in case you use Commanders Act Consent with TMS Commanders Act (Web Container).

Categories & Vendors are managed separately for each web container. You can select a Web Commander container in the left column. Then you can manage following Consent setting per tag on the right side of the interface.

This option enables Commanders Act Consent to block a tag depending on a visitors privacy setting. It is possible to activate or deactivate this setting for all tags via the all and none buttons on top of the column.

Additionally you can also manage these Consent settings for following elements:




Commanders Act related hits that are initiated from the container (this includes hits for functionalities like tag deduplication, tag hierarchy, and other). A separate category is available for the cookie sync option. This setting is synced between all client-side TagCommander container.


Custom JavaScript that can be implemented in TagCommander container (found in ADVANCED section of the Edit tab).

Containers have to be re-generated and deployed to apply these changes.

Assign categories in Commanders Act TMS interface

For convenience it is also possible to directly assign Commanders Act Consent categories & vendors inside the Edit tab of TMS Commanders Act (Web Containers). Assigning a category & vendor also includes the tag in the privacy scope.

In case a new vendor is added to the account the tag will not be fired when a user provided an optin for the corresponding category. Therefore it is necessary to activate the "Re-activate privacy" option during the generation of a new banner version to re-ask consent. The option "Don't re-ask the consent to trigger this tag" will change this default behaviour so that the vendor will receive an automatic optin based on the corresponding category.

IAB TCF V2.2 option

In case you choose to manage tags with IAB 2.2 you do not need to assign IAB compliant tags in the category assignation tab. IAB compliant tags are automatically controlled by the IAB framework.

It is still possible to assign tags to categories to allow Commanders Act Consent to manage them directly with TMS Commanders Act.
