What are server-side cookies and how does Osano cookie consent work with them?
Server-side code and client-side code serve different purposes and operate in distinct environments within a web application. They are executed independently and have separate scopes.
- Server-Side Code: This code runs on the web server. It often involves languages like Python, PHP, Ruby, Java, or Node.js. Server-side code handles data processing, database queries, business logic, and generating dynamic content to be sent to the client. This code executes BEFORE client-side code and is often loaded in the site headers.
What does this mean for Osano?
The Osano cookie consent may not be able to discover or affect server-side cookies by default and may require a URL scan or manual entry to accomplish identification for disclosure purposes.
In certain cases, you may be able to utilize the Cookie Consent API to read a user's consent preferences and then affect server-side cookies.
