What's new in the documentation for Azure Information Protection, November 2019
The information about how often label policies are refreshed for the scanner from the unified labeling client is corrected to say every 4 hours only. Previously it said every 4 hours and when the scanner service starts.
- Updated to remove the additional step that was needed to publish labels from the Unified labeling pane in the Azure portal after you configure your workspace for Azure Information Protection analytics, and then whenever you made changes to your labels. With an update on the backend, this additional step is no longer needed.
- Updated File types that are excluded from classification and protection with the information that unlike the classic client. .msg files are not automatically excluded. If these file types are labeled (classified and generically protected), the file can't be opened. As a workaround, remove the label. Because of this issue, we don't recommend that you remove the .msg file type for the scanner.
- With the new public preview to enable sensitivity labels for Office files in SharePoint and OneDrive, amended the warning that if the label you select applies protection to a document, the protected document might not be suitable to be saved on SharePoint or OneDrive. Similar warnings in the documentation about loss of SharePoint functionality have also been updated for this preferred solution.
