AzureInformationProtection

This module has cmdlets for the Azure Information Protection client, including both the unified labeling and classic clients. The cmdlets are installed together with the client.

Installing the AzureInformationProtection module

  • This module requires Windows PowerShell 4.0. This prerequisite is not checked by the installation.
  • The module installs automatically when you install the full version of the Azure Information Protection clients. Alternately, you can install the module only by using the PowerShellOnly=true parameter.

AADRM

The cmdlets in this module let you administer the Azure Rights Management protection service for Azure Information Protection.

This module is now deprecated and replaced with the AIPService module, which provides the same functionality with renamed cmdlets.

The renamed cmdlets in the current module have aliases to the old cmdlets. Cmdlets from the AADRM module that were already deprecated and no longer used were not carried forward to the newer AIPService module.

Support for this older module ended July 15, 2020.
