PowerShell reference for protection templates

Applies to: Azure Information Protection, Office 365

Protection settings for Azure Information Protection are saved in protection templates. Everything that you can do in the Azure portal to create and manage protection settings, you can do from the command line by using PowerShell.

In addition, you can export and import protection templates. These two actions let you copy protection templates between tenants or do bulk edits of complex properties, such as multilingual names and descriptions.

You can also use export and import to back up and restore your protection templates. As a best practice, regularly back up your templates. Then, if you make a change to the protection settings that wasn't intended, you can easily revert to a previous version.

For installation instructions, see Installing the AIPService PowerShell module.
