Excluding a SharePoint site from retention policy that applies to 'All' sites

Iron Contributor

We have a retention policy that applies globally to 'All' SharePoint sites. Is it possible to exclude a specific site from such policy. When we try that in admin portal and add a site to exclusion list, the inclusion list automatically changes from 'All' to a dash '-'. Does it mean the policy now no longer apply to all sites and we need to manually apply to each site by adding them to 'inclusion' list.

No, it simply mean that you have excluded the given site. The dash symbolizes that you have configured some inclusions/exclusions.

@Vasil Michev Thx Vasil. in adition of this question.


We have a retention policy (3 years) that applies globally to 'All' SharePoint sites. Fot 1 "ICTTeam" SharePoint site i want a different policy (30days). Is this the right way to do that:


1. Exclude "ICTTeam" from the default 3 years policy

2. make a new retention policy with only the ICTTeam in it
