How to activate Azure Rights Management from the Office 365 admin center

Applies to: Azure Information Protection, Office 365

Use these instructions if you have access to the Azure Rights Management service from the Office 365 admin center. For example, you have a subscription for Office 365 E3 or Office 365 E5.

  1. After you have signed up for an Office 365 plan that includes Rights Management, sign in to Office 365 with your work or school account that has the global administrator role for your Office 365 deployment.

  2. If the Office 365 admin center does not automatically display, select the app launcher icon in the upper-left and choose Admin. The Admin tile appears only to Office 365 administrators.

    Tip

    For admin center help, see About the Office 365 admin center.

  3. Navigate to the rights management page, or use the search functionality.

    • To navigate: Settings > Services & add-ins > Microsoft Azure Information Protection > Manage Microsoft Azure Information Protection settings

    • To search: In the search box on the Home page, type Information Protection, and from the search results, click Microsoft Azure Information Protection, and then Manage Microsoft Azure Information Protection settings.

      Note

      If you navigate to this option, depending on your display, you might need to scroll to see this option. However, if it is not listed on the page and it is not returned in the search results, it might be because your service plan does not include the Azure Rights Management service for Azure Information Protection.

      To activate the Azure Rights Management service, you must have either an Azure Information Protection Premium plan or an Office 365 plan that includes Rights Management. For help with this issue, send an email message to askipteam.

  4. On the rights management page, click activate.

  5. When prompted Do you want to activate Rights Management?, click activate.

You should now see Rights management is activated and the option to deactivate.
