What is the Powershell command to configure a new Retention Policy in the Information Governance?

Hi there,

 

I am Looking for the PowerShell command to configure a new Retention Policy in the Information Governance.

I am not Looking for the PowerShell Command to apply Retention Tags, which is
New-RetentionPolicy.

 

I would like to exclude an IPM Message Class for Voice Mail, which is not possible through the UI.

 

Thanks,
Franck

To work with Retention policies in the SCC, use the New-RetentionCompliancePolicy cmdlet. That said, if you use the SCC policies, actions like excluding specific message classes are not possible, the policy will apply to all messages.

Thanks @Vasil Michev ,

 

but in the New-RetentionCompliancePolicy I have no option to define the Settings of the Policy, e.g. how many years I want the Retention to be in place.

 

It seems to me that this is defined in theNew-RetentionComplianceRule.

 

So what is defined in a new SCC Retention Policy UI seems to be a mix of New-RetentionCompliancePolicy and New-RetentionComplianceRule?

Am I correct here?

 

The New-RetentionComplianceRule would give me the Option of excluding IPM classes.

 

Thanks,

Franck

Yes, the two cmdlets go hand in hand, but technically the policy one is the "parent". I forgot about the ExcludedItemClasses parameter :)
