Sensitivity labels for images not carried over to SharePoint

Brass Contributor

Hi there,

 

I have a customer using the Purview Information Protection client to apply sensitivity labels locally in Windows before uploading files into SharePoint. The Office files are retaining the sensitivity labels but images (JPGs PNGs, etc.) and PDFs are not. Is this a hard limitation or is there a way to retain (or activate) the sensitivity labels on images in SharePoint/OneDrive?

 

Thanks,

Alan

Microsoft have replied elsewhere and confirmed, unfortunately this is a hard limitation and there is currently no way to retain or activate sensitivity labels on image files (e.g. PNGs/JPGs) in SharePoint/OneDrive, even if they’ve been applied in the Purview Information Protection Client in Windows.

According to the official documentation: Enable sensitivity labels for files in SharePoint and OneDrive, sensitivity labels can be applied to Office files in SharePoint and OneDrive, but not to image files such as JPGs and PNGs. This is a hard limitation and there is currently no way to retain or activate sensitivity labels on image files in SharePoint/OneDrive.
