Your Script is Not Yet Active

Question: What does "Your Script is Not Yet Active" mean?

If you are receiving the alert "Your Script is Not Yet Active," or "Complete your compliance by categorizing the scripts loaded by your site," this means that your script is in "Listener Mode." This is the default compliance mode when you first publish a configuration. 

When your script is in Listener mode, only monitoring occurs. 

To see the dialog on your site, you'll need to change to "Strict" or "Permissive" mode and publish that out. PLEASE BE SURE YOU UNDERSTAND THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN STRICT AND PERMISSIVE MODE BEFORE PUBLISHING! 


Compliance Mode Definitions

  • Listener Mode - Osano will gather script and cookie information for categorization, but the consent dialog will not appear on your webpage, and no blocking will occur.
  • Permissive Mode -  The consent dialog will appear on your website, and all uncategorized scripts will be identified and allowed regardless of consent given. All categorized scripts will be accepted or denied based on user selection. Compliance can be reached in Permissive Mode, but is less certain and sustainable than Strict.
  • Strict Mode - The consent dialog will appear on your website, and all uncategorized scripts will be blocked until they have been classified. (Recommended - Most compliant)

Note you'll need to have at least ONE script/script rule classified before you can change modes. We recommend not publishing into permissive or strict mode until you have the majority of your scripts/cookies classified. To read more about classifying scripts and cookies, see " Classification Categories" and "Classification Rules".
