Our technical writer, Carol Bailey, is letting you know what’s new and hot in the docs for this month.
Dan (on behalf of the Information Protection team)
The Documentation for Azure Rights Management has been updated on the web and the latest content has a July 2016 (or later) date at the top of the article.
Although this post is titled documentation changes for Azure Rights Management, the big news for this month is the new documentation for Azure Information Protection – which builds on Azure Rights Management by making it easier for you (and users) to classify documents and emails, which in turn makes it easier to apply Rights Management protection when needed. Currently in public preview for you to try it out yourself, read the announcement: Azure Information Protection – available in Public Preview now! Then turn to our documentation to find additional resources, requirements, FAQs, and a quick start tutorial that guides you through setting and using some of the most popular features:
- What is Azure Information Protection (preview)?
- Requirements for Azure Information Protection
- Quick start tutorial for Azure Information Protection
- Frequently asked questions for Azure Information Protection preview
- Configuring the Azure Information Protection policy
- Installing the Azure Information Protection client
Because this is a preview release, the documentation, like the service, is subject to frequent changes. It’s worthwhile regularly checking for the latest information.
If you have feedback about the documentation for Azure RMS, the RMS sharing application, or Azure Information Protection: Email AskIPTeam@Microsoft.com. We value customer feedback and try to incorporate it whenever possible.
