AdMob EU Consent Error: consent form can be used with custom provider selection only

I am the Google consent SDK for android and I have followed all the steps listed in the documentation. When I load the form I get this error in the onConsentFormError :

consent form can be used with custom provider selection only.

I have selected commonly used set of ad technology providers on AdMob console

AdMob EU Consent Error: consent form can be used with custom provider selection only

So my questions are:

1. For this option, do I need to take consent from user? According to documentation on Google Developers site:

Important: The Google-rendered consent form is not supported if any of your publisher IDs use the commonly used set of ad technology providers. Attempting to load the Google-rendered consent form will always fail in this case.

So is it possible I'm getting this error because of the above limitation?

2. If I have to take consent what to do about it in this case? Should I show my own custom consent dialog or something?


I am too working on this GDPR mess today and managed to get that Google-rendered form shown, like this:

AdMob EU Consent Error: consent form can be used with custom provider selection only

According to my so far understanding, the only case you can make use of Google-rendered form is:

  1. Use Custom set of ad technology providers
  2. And do NOT use mediation

Otherwise you would need to render a dialog by yourself to ask for consent, which I decided not to, because according to my feeling most end users would go for negative choice while dealing with AD related questions, therefore I feel directly setting to Non-Personalized AD is in some level better than bothering user with a massive text and non-cancelable dialog.
