Enable or Disable Journal Report Decryption

Applies to: Exchange Server 2013

Enabling journal report decryption allows the Journaling agent to attach a decrypted copy of a rights-protected message to the journal report. Before you enable journal report decryption, you must add the Federated Delivery mailbox to the super users group configured on your Active Directory Rights Management Services (AD RMS) server.

For additional management tasks related to Information Rights Management (IRM), see Information Rights Management procedures.

What do you need to know before you begin?

  • Estimated time to complete: 1 minute

  • You need to be assigned permissions before you can perform this procedure or procedures. To see what permissions you need, see the "Rights protection" entry in the Messaging policy and compliance permissions topic.

  • Members of the super users group are granted an owner use license when they request a license from the AD RMS cluster. This allows them to decrypt all RMS-protected content created by that AD RMS cluster.

  • An AD RMS cluster must be installed in the Active Directory forest.

  • The Federated Delivery mailbox has been added to an AD RMS super users group. For details, see Add the Federation Mailbox to the AD RMS Super Users Group.

  • You can't use the Exchange admin center (EAC) to enable journal report decryption. You must use the Shell.

  • For information about keyboard shortcuts that may apply to the procedures in this topic, see Keyboard shortcuts in the Exchange admin center.
