How to activate Azure Rights Management from the Azure portal

Applies to: Azure Information Protection

Use these instructions if you want to activate the Azure Rights Management service (Azure RMS) from the Azure portal.

  1. If you haven't already done so, open a new browser window and sign in to the Azure portal as a security admin or global admin. Then navigate to the Azure Information Protection blade.

    For example, on the hub menu, click More services and start typing Information in the Filter box. Select Azure Information Protection.

    To open the Azure Information Protection blade, you must have either an Azure Information Protection Premium plan or an Office 365 plan that includes Rights Management. If you have one of these subscriptions but see a message that a valid subscription cannot be found, send an email message to askipteam.

  2. Locate the MANAGE menu options, and select Protection activation.

    Click Activate, and then confirm your action.

When activation is complete, the information bar displays Activation finished successfully.
