For Salesforce to send data through Acoustic Exchange to other endpoints, the minor consent attribute must be included in all outbound messages that are sent to Acoustic Exchange.
The minor consent attribute is not a standard field in Salesforce, and must be configured as a
minorConsent in the Salesforce user interface.
Configuring the minor consent custom field is a mandatory part of the Acoustic Exchange-Salesforce integration. It is mandatory because Acoustic Exchange strives to protect the privacy of any individual whose data passes through Acoustic Exchange. As such, we provide the ability to indicate whether the data that is being passed is associated with an individual who is considered a minor, and if the legal guardian of that minor did or did not provide consent for that minor.
This task describes a basic outline of what is required to configure a custom attribute in the Salesforce UI, and the specifics of what those configurations must be.
For more information on how to create a custom field, refer to the Salesforce documentation.
