Cookies on StatusPage

tue May 25, 2020

When visiting our status page, I see the following cookies in my browser: 

  • ajs_anonymous_id
  • ajs_group_id
  • NID

From what I can tell, these are Atlassian's and Google's tracking cookies. Since they are not essential, is there a way to avoid setting them unless a site visitor explicitly opts in?

Under GDPR, for example, the website must receive the user's consent before setting any cookies except strictly necessary ones.

@Mark Campbell-Vincent This seems like a poor decision that we'd outright remove an important feature - why not include the options to opt in / out of cookies upon site load like most modern sites do today?

Hi @tue -

While these were in use to power a usage analytics feature inside of our product, we did understand that these cookies would require end-user consent in certain regions of the world. To avoid any compliance issues, we have made the decision to disable and remove these cookies outright. While this does unfortunately break the page analytics feature, it does address tracking concerns. These have already been removed in production systems.

Please do let us know if you have any further questions related to cookies, but note that no further action is needed from your end regarding this change.

Hello Mark, how can I turn off this Cookies? I am in Germany and I need to turn this cookies off or install a CMP.
