Personal Identifying Information/Personal Health Information Scanner

Copper Contributor

I am looking to figure a way I can do a PII (Personal Identifiable Information)/PHI (Personal Health Information) scan as part of an Azure DevOps Service Pipeline.  If someone has a suggestion I am open to it.


I came across the Azure Information Protection service.  It looks like it has a scanner that could be used for some of this.  Does anyone know if it's possible to use it as part of a pipeline, or have other suggestions to accomplish the goal?

@tikidune there is cool Microsoft 365 Compliance Center which will provides you templates for protecting PII and PHI and you could even define your own template, take a look at: 


Thank you for that, that does look interesting.  Wouldn't that only scan things inside of the 365 account?


I do not see a way to scan externally,  The main thing I want to be able to do is scan items in the repo to ensure that the data does not contain any information it shouldn't

@tikidune that's correct, you could also setup information protection using RMS server in Windows Server , it depends on your infrastructure. It also supports Microsoft Word, Excel, PowerPoint and so on.

But I guess you are referring to ability to have such functionality for DevOps and source code, is that correct?

In this case, this option is not available since they are not scanning source codes, but you may suggest this feature:
