    Each supported 3rd party extension is an independent plugin to help maintaining core easier and can extand to support more extensions in future. In this documentation, we will how you steps to create a GDPR plugin to support a 3rd party extension.

    There are few steps for this, you must create a normal plugin, like other regular Joomla plugin, and after install you will be available to manage your plugin from our JA GDPR cpanel page.

    Our case study is creating a GDPR plugin for Adagency component and you can use same steps.

    Below you can see an example for this extension - com_adagency, the structure for files is like in the next image:

    gdpr plugin for adagency

    Root Folder - adagency (extension name is com_adagency)

    Root Files:

    1. Languages files: en-GB.plg_jagdpr_adagency.ini and en-GB.plg_jagdpr_adagency.sys.ini language files. Here you should add your language variables.

    2. adagency.xml file is the xml file that is used for plugin install. Is very important to set for your plugin this attribute - group="jagdpr", like in below image, in this mode, your custom plugin will be added under plugins - jagdpr type

    gdpr adagency xml file

    script.adagency.php file is the file that will be used to automatically publish your plugin after install. Note tha in this function - postflight - you should specify the extension/plugin element (this will be the name of 3-rd extension):

    • $db->quoteName('element').'='.$db->quote('adagency'),
    • and extension/plugin folder (this must be "jagdpr"):
    • $db->quoteName('folder').'='.$db->quote('jagdpr')

    gdpr plugin script file

    adagency.php file - this file will be automatically executed when plugin is loaded in front-end. This must contain some specific functions that must be implemented by you based on users actions. Each function is used for delete user account, if your user want this and if you allow this action, other function will send an email to your site Super Administrator to manually delete user account if that user request for this and if this action is allowed by your site owner.

    In the next image, you can see the file structure:

    gdpr plugin php file

    This is a simple example of what this functions must do.

    • onPrepareLayout function - will load some JS or CSS files, if you need this, will check if the logged user is a valid user or not, in this case we check if the logged user is an "advertiser", this is a specific user account for AdAgency extension and only advertisers can see and manage the profile in JA GDPR cpanel. All the results will be transferred to the plugin default layout (plugins\jagdpr\adagency\tmpl\default.php file) and after that the layout will be loaded.
      gdpr plugin php file
    • onDeleteadvertiser function - will be executed when your user will click on "Permanent Delete" button from front-end. He will want to delete his advertiser account automatically from database. In this example we check this user account, delete all references from other database tables where his user ID value is stored and then this actions will be saved as COMPLETED
      gdpr plugin php file
      gdpr plugin php file
    • onRequestdeleteadvertiser function - will be executed if your user what to request from Super Administrator to manually delete the account. The site Super Administrator will receive via email thie request and he will log in site back-end and will delete the user account.
      gdpr plugin php file

    This action request will be listed in JA GDPR - Activities menu item - and when Site Administrator will click on "Delete" button the user account will be automatically deleted.

    • assets\css\adagency.css file - here you can add your custom CSS code, if your plugin need for this.

    Forms Files:

    • config.xml file - is the xml configuration file. Here you can set the custom options for your plugin, all these options will be automatically listed in your custom plugin Settings and options will be checkd in plugin layout file (plugins\jagdpr\adagency\tmpl\default.php) in front-end.

    gdpr plugin php file

    In "panel-footer" area, you should add the delete and edit profile buttons. These buttons are based on "JA GDPR" - "General" Settings and "JA GDPR" - "Your Plugin" Settings

    gdpr plugin php file

    If you want to add "Delete" button in your plugin, from your plugin settings, you should set this option - "Enable Delete/Request Button" to YES and from General Settings:

    • you should set "Delete" option from this field - Delete Button Action - if you want to display "Permanet Delete" button in front-end and
    • you should set "Request Manual Accounts Deletion" option from this field - Delete Button Action - if you want to display "Request Manual Deletion" button in front-end.

    gdpr plugin php file

    If user click on "Permanet Delete" button, this function - onDeleteadvertiser - will be called from "plugins\jagdpr\adagency\adagency.php" file and if user click on "Request Manual Deletion" button, this function - onRequestdeleteadvertiser - will be called from "plugins\jagdpr\adagency\adagency.php" file.

    When user click on "Permanent Delete" button, a modal page will be opened in front-end and user should confirm that action.

    The html code for that model page is added in "plugins\jagdpr\adagency\tmpl\default.php" file, on the bottom.

    gdpr plugin php file

    and you can add or change the alert message from that modal from "JA GDPR" - "General" Settings
