The Documentation Library for Azure Rights Management has been updated on the web and the latest content has Updated: March 1, 2016 (or later) at the top of the page.

Summary of the documentation available: Getting Started with Rights Management | Configuring Rights Management | Using Rights Management | Administering Rights Management by using Windows PowerShell | Rapid Deployment Guide for Azure Rights Management

Plus, the Rights Management sharing application guides (admin guide and user guide) and FAQs (for Windows and mobile platforms).

Most of the doc updates this month are to support the recently updated RMS Protection Tool – with the main page on MSDN being RMS Protection Cmdlets. However, we continue to update the core Azure RMS docs for support changes and to answer your questions. There are no significant changes this month to the documentation for the RMS sharing application.

We value customer feedback and try to incorporate it when possible.  Although we can’t promise to make the docs perfect for everybody, we are committed to continual improvement.  If you have any feedback about the docs for the RMS Protection Took, the RMS sharing application, or for Azure RMS, email AskIPTeam@Microsoft.com.

 

What’s New in the Documentation Library for Azure Rights Management, March 2016

The following information lists the articles that have significant changes since the last update (February 2016).

Requirements for Azure Rights Management

– Updated support statements for Windows 10 Mobile, and added Outlook for Android in the client device capabilities table.

Activating Azure Rights Management

– Added a new procedure if you’re using the new Office 365 admin center preview to activate Azure RMS. This activation option is located under Settings > Apps.

Configuring Custom Templates for Azure Rights Management

– Updated to document the new maximum limit of 500 custom templates (published or archived) that you can save in Azure. If you exceed the 500 limit because you have many archived templates, consider exporting the archived templates. This lets you save them locally (to import later if needed), and you can then delete them from Azure.  This limit applies whether you create the templates in the Azure classic portal, or you create or import them by using PowerShell.

Configuring Super Users for Azure Rights Management and Discovery Services or Data Recovery

– Removed the warning that the RMS Protection Tool doesn’t support user accounts now that the the 2.1.0.0 version of the RMS Protection PowerShell module is released. However, for automated scenarios (such as scripts that run when you’re not signed in, and use with Windows Server File Classification Infrastructure), you should still use a service principal account.
