Documentation for Azure Information Protection
(formerly Azure Rights Management) has been updated on the web and the latest content has an
(or later) date at the top of the article.
In addition to the doc updates listed below, the
RMS Protection Cmdlets documentation
is also updated for a
recent release of the RMS Protection Tool
(version 126.96.36.199 of the PowerShell module, now on the
). I'm happy to report that most of the doc updates were for
that were documented for the previous version: You can now unprotect protected voice mails (Unified Messaging), unprotect .eml files, and there's no longer a dependency on Microsoft Outlook when you unprotect .pst files.
This new version also gives you more control for retaining the original file, with a new
parameter. When you specify this parameter with Protect-RMSFile or Unprotect-RMSFile, the existing file is overwritten if you do not specify an output folder. In previous versions that didn't have this parameter, this was the default behavior, which meant you might accidentally overwrite the original file. Now, you have to specify a parameter before the original file is overwritten. However, to retain the same behavior as before, you might need to add the -InPlace parameter to your commands and scripts. This change, including all the examples, is updated through the documentation and is noted on the main page as a
for this version.
There are additional improvements in this version, which include performance and support for inline pictures and documents in emails. You can read more information about this new version from Tom Moser on the Azure Information Protection Yammer site:
Updated: RMS Protection Tool
One more new release that's worth noting with some updates to the documentation is the Azure Information Protection client. You can read more about this new version from Eyal Manor, also on the Azure Information Protection Yammer site:
Azure Information Protection client update (v188.8.131.52)
With so many releases, new features, better integration support, and exciting improvements on the horizon, it can be challenging to keep up. If you weren't able to get to
Microsoft Ignite 2016,
which had lots of great sessions for Azure Information Protection, you can catch up by viewing the on-demand sessions that are now added to the Resources section of
What is Azure Information Protection?
but also included here, for convenience:
For feedback about the documentation for the RMS Protection tool and Azure Information Protection: Email
. We value customer feedback and try to incorporate it whenever possible.
