[Case Sharing] Unable to protect cloud URL's using windows information protection RRS feed

  • General discussion

  • This post explains how to configure the settings for protecting URLs by WIP.

    Issue Description

    Although some URLs are added to the “Protected Domains” and “Cloud Resources” in the WIP settings, they are not protected by WIP.


    The URLs should be added to the “Cloud Resources” in the WIP settings, and to add a subdomain for a cloud resource, a period (.) should be used instead of an asterisk (*). For example, to add all subdomains within, use "" (without the quotation marks). After device sync, the URLs can be protected.


    In the WIP policy, add the URLs to the “Cloud Resources”, and replace the asterisk (*) with the period(.) for the subdomains. 

    More Information

    The “Protected Domains” are used to specify the corporate identities. For example, there are two mailboxes: and If the default domain is, the domain need to be added in the “Protected Domains” for WIP to protect the mailbox.

    The “Cloud Resources” are used to protect the web contents in a protected app. In this case, MS Edge is a protected app, so once all the domains/URLs are added in the “Cloud Resources”, they are protected in MS Edge.
