why RMS works without creating a revocation policy ? RRS feed

  • Question


    when creating RMS policy template , at the end even if we don't specify revocation policy and revocation check URL , no problem occures and RMS clients can open that doc using RMS server.  i think it is more reasonable if RMS server allow access to that file only if we have defined revocation policy and revocation URL.

    thanks in advance

  • Hi John,

    Revocation is an optional feature on ADRMS. As to question why, I believe the whole point of having RMS / IRM in place is to serve as a functional barrier for critical content flowing outside with authorization. With the primary authentication being with AD user object,  if you disable the user object, the access gets disabled, so the revocation list is kind of optional in that case.
