Microsoft Purview DLP policy push takes 24 hours to reflect

Copper Contributor

There are some scenarios where label and label policy changes can take effect much faster or be longer than 24 hours.

is there a way we can enforce policy to be pushed immediately, lets say a powershell command?

Hi, @securityxpert1122,


I understand the delay in policy deployment can be discouraging but there is no way to make this a faster process. It is pushed out to all users the change is applied to as fast as possible, but this can take a fair amount of time, as you know.


There could be things causing slower than average rollout time, such as a poor connection for that user or something like having users that leave their applications running 24x7 so a scheduled restart can help with this. You should usually be able to expect that if you enable a policy at close of business on Monday, most if not all users should see that change by close of business on Tuesday.
