Auto Apply Retention Label to Mailbox Folders

New Contributor

Hello, does anyone know a way to auto apply a retention label (in Security and Compliance) to mailbox folders with a specific name? For example, auto apply a retention label to mailbox folders named 'Folder1' and 'Folder2'. I'm assuming I need a KQL for this but I can't find what the Property Name should be.

You cannot. That type of granularity is not possible via the SCC retention labels/policies, only with the old style Exchange retention tags/policies.

Thanks Vasil, so the only way to do this with SCC retention would be to publish a label tthat does the same thing and manually apply it?

Generally speaking yes, but it depends on the label type and whether an exchange retention tag is already applied to the folder.
