Hi folks,

Here is the follow-up post to our earlier post where you can learn more about how to quickly enable Rights management capabilities within the SharePoint Online preview.

I'll let Tejas Patel, provide more details.

Thanks,

Hi, I'm Tejas, a program manager on the Windows Azure AD Rights Management team, and I just want to provide some quick "jump start" steps for how you try out and get a feel for using Windows Azure AD Rights Management.

Yesterday, we discussed how to enable Rights management capabilities in the Exchange Online Preview. Today, I'll be discussing how to enable Rights management in Sharepoint Online Preview via Windows Azure AD Rights Management. If you haven’t read this post you should before trying the steps to enable Rights management features in SharePoint Online Preview.

Enable SharePoint Online Preview rights management capabilities

  1. Login to the SharePoint Administration Center, click settings and then select to Use the IRM service specified in your configuration.
  2. Create a new site or go to an existing site and then click Documents, then the Library tab, and then Library Settings.
  3. Click on Information Rights Management and configure the Document library for rights management.
  4. You can now go back to the document library, add a new Word document to the library, and then upon opening the document in Word 2013 (if configured using the steps from this post), the document will be rights protected.

As always, please let us know if there are any questions or feedback. I'll be doing blog posts next week to help show you some of the other ways you can use Windows Azure AD Rights Management with the Office 365 preview.

 

Thanks,

Tejas
