Enabling the licenses RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi guys,

    If we enable a Office 365 license with E3 and then EMS, I can see that every option is enabled for AIP except the Rights Management Service.

    So out-of-the-box we can classify and label documents via AIP but we also have to enable Rights Management Service for the users to be able to actually protect the document?

  • Yes, that's exactly right. Take a look at the recommended deployment roadmap: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/information-protection/plan-design/deployment-roadmap#deployment-roadmap-for-classification-labeling-and-protection

    There might be some preparation you want/need to do before the service is activated and you might want to deploy labels that just classify in the meantime.  But if you know you want to use the Azure Rights Management service for data protection immediately, you can activate earlier.
