The Traceback system has been designed to allow flexibility in the integration with regards to how the process displays to your users. You can keep the default settings or you can modify in part or in full as follows :
Authentication Text In your Traceback Code settings, you can modify the text that is displayed on the white overlay while the check is taking place. This field allows the
<br>HTML line break for a little additional formatting.
Authentication Text Pause This allows you to lengthen the time the Authentication Text message is displayed.
You can make changes to the Default Display HTML by adding your own CSS styles. The Default Display HTML consists of two DIV elements. An outer element that is displayed as the overlay with an ID of
#ixtb-overlayand an inner DIV which displays the text with an ID of
You may need to add
!importantto any CSS to ensure that it overwrites the Default Display HTML.
You can replace the Default Display HTML completely. Change the settings for your Traceback Code so that 'Default Display HTML' is not included.
You can now add your own code to provide the user experience that you prefer. In many cases you can provide the same overlay DIV but by coding this HTML yourself you can set it immediately to overlay your page - preventing any slight flicker as the page loads.
The function call is made to :
Note that no function call is made during the script load, only on the responses.
Depending on your configuration, Traceback will send Fail/Pass codes either
- As a message directly to the user (Default HTML with no Fail URL) or
- Included in the Fail URL redirect (if you have selected 'Add Error Codes' in your settings) or
- As a parameter in the function call (if you are handling the display yourself).
These codes are :
URL Code / Function
No Traceback Key
When no key is in the URL
Traceback Key Fail
When the key is in the incorrect format
Traceback Key Expired, Please Scan Again
When a key is re-used within a short period after issue.
Traceback Key Not Found, Please Scan Again
When a valid format key is passed but it's either never been valid or so old that it's been removed.
When the key has been passed as valid.

data-failurlin the script source code.
For example :
<script defer data-text="Your Auth in Progress<br>Message" data-failurl="https://yourdomain.com/fail" src="https://t.ixkio.com/s/traceback.js?code=<yourcode>">
This will overrule any settings made in your Traceback Code console configuration.
