How to remove protection when employee (creator) left company RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi all,

    In the scenario: the employee, who create protected document through AD RMS, leaf company. And when creator applied Policy Templates to documents, the Policy Templates has no Super User Group setting. How can the IT manager remove the protection from documents without creator right?

    Thank you.

  • Hi -

    The Super User feature works across all content protected by an AD RMS cluster.  There is not a per rights policy template Super User setting.  If someone has Super User permissions, they can open, and subsequently unprotect, any content protected by any rights policy template or ad hoc policy in the organization.

    So, in your scenario, simply open the document with an account with Super User permissions.

  • Hi Micah,

    If the ADRMS Cluster not enable Super User, who can remove protection on the document?

    Thanks.

  • Only people with a full control use license can open protected content and remove the protection.  You can use the rights policy template Rights Summary to check to see if anyone is granted full control over the document.  If there is no one listed, you could add a single user account to the template and grant that user full control over the template.  Then open the document with that user account and unprotect it.

    Thanks,
