Consent APIs

1. Overview

This API has been available since 1.7.0

This API is in technical preview and is subject to change.

A FusionAuth Consent is a definition of a permission that can be given to a User. At a minimum a consent has a name, and defines the minimum age of self-consent. A consent can then be granted to a User from a family member or optionally a User may self-consent if they meet the minimum age defined by the consent.

The first API allows you to create, delete, update and retrieve a consent. The FusionAuth Consent is the object that defines the consent, the values, minimum ages, etc.

 
The second API is the User Consent API, this API allows you to grant a User Consent, and update a User Consent. In order to revoke a User Consent you simply need to update the consent status.

This API is used to create a new Consent.

2.1. Request

Create a new Consent with a randomly generated Id

URI

POST /api/consent

Create a new Consent with the provided unique Id

URI

POST /api/consent/{consentId}

Table 1. Request Parameters

consentId [UUID] Optional defaults to secure random UUID

The Id to use for the new Consent. If not specified a secure random UUID will be generated.

Table 2. Request Body

consent.consentEmailTemplateId [UUID] Optional

consent.countryMinimumAgeForSelfConsent [Map<Locale, Integer>] Optional

This property optionally overrides the value provided in defaultMinimumAgeForSelfConsent if a more specific value is defined. This can be useful when the age of self consent varies by country.

 
For example, consider the following definition:

{
  "de": 17
}

If a user has defined their preferred locale to be Germany (de), the age of self consent defined for Germany will be used instead of the value defined by defaultMinimumAgeForSelfConsent.

consent.defaultMinimumAgeForSelfConsent [Integer] Required

The default age of self consent used when granting this consent to a user unless a more specific one is provided by the countryMinimumAgeForSelfConsent.

When using Email Plus a follow up email will be sent to the giver at a randomly selected time within the configured minimum and maximum range of hours.

consent.emailPlus.emailTemplateId [UUID] Required

The Id of the Email Template that is used to send the reminder notice to the consent giver. This value is required when emailPlus.enabled is set to true.
