Deletes a Rights Management rights policy template.


      -TemplateId <Guid>


The Remove-AadrmTemplate cmdlet deletes an Azure Rights Management rights policy template.

You can delete only custom templates. You can set default templates to an archived state but you cannot delete them.

Although you can configure Rights Management templates in the Azure portal, you must use PowerShell to remove these templates.

After a template is deleted, content protected with that template might become inaccessible. Users who are super users can continue to access content that was previously protected with a template that is now deleted. For more information about super users, see Configuring super users for Azure Rights Management and discovery services or data recovery.

This cmdlet requires the template ID, which you can get with the Get-AadrmTemplate cmdlet.

This cmdlet performs the following operations:

  • Displays the template properties.

  • Warns that all content protected with this template may become inaccessible.

  • Asks to confirm whether to proceed.

  • Calls the service to remove the template with the specified GUID.

For more information about custom templates, including how to configure them in the Azure portal, see Configuring and managing templates for Azure Information Protection.
