Documentation for Azure Information Protection
has been updated on the web and the latest content has a
(or later) date at the top of the article.
Wondered if you missed a doc update announcement for January? You didn't. We had a lot of documentation pending for the
, and so we had very few docs republished in January. Because the February releases had a significant impact across the documentation, you'll see a lot of articles with a February update date. For example, references to the Rights Management sharing application and the RMS Protection Tool throughout the documentation have been updated now that they are replaced by the Azure Information Protection client. However, documentation for this older application and tool will remain published as long as they remain in support.

What's new in the documentation for Azure Information Protection, February 2017
Rights Management Sharing Application for Windows
- This landing page for the Rights Sharing application, the admin guide, and the user guide, have all been updated to include the end of support notification,
- New online help for the PowerShell cmdlets that install with the Azure Information Protection client. Before you use these cmdlets, make sure that you read and follow the
in the Azure Information Protection client admin guide. These prerequisites were previously documented in "about" files that shipped with the module for the RMS Protection Tool, but are now documented in the admin guide so that they can be more easily updated if needed.
