Published Aug 30 2019 10:00 AM 3,573 Views

The Documentation for Azure Information Protection been updated on the web and the latest content has an August 2019 (or later) date at the top of the article.


No big releases this month, although the sharp-eyed among you might have noticed additional information being reported for Azure Information Protection analytics, which meant an update to the Central reporting for Azure Information Protection article.  Not a complete replacement for the document tracking site, but you can now see when a protected document was accessed (successfully, or denied) in your Log Analytics workspace. This information is retrieved from the protection usage logs, which means that this access information isn't restricted to users in your tenant and is independent from specific clients or services.


Most of the other doc updates this month are for corrections and requests for clarifications.  We listen to your feedback and try to incorporate it whenever possible. Let me know if you have feedback about the technical documentation for Azure Information Protection. I also encourage you to head over to our Yammer site to see what others are discussing.
