Description

You need to be assigned permissions in the Security & Compliance Center before you can use this cmdlet. For more information, see Permissions in the Security & Compliance Center.

Examples

Example 1

New-DlpCompliancePolicy -Name "GlobalPolicy" -SharePointLocation All

This example creates a DLP policy named GlobalPolicy that will be enforced across all SharePoint Online locations.

Example 2

New-DlpCompliancePolicy -Name "GlobalPolicy" -Comment "Primary policy" -SharePointLocation "https://my.url","https://my.url2" -OneDriveLocation "https://my.url3","https://my.url4" -Mode Enable

This example creates a DLP policy named GlobalPolicy for the specified SharePoint Online and OneDrive for Business locations. The new policy has a descriptive comment and will be enabled on creation.

Parameters

-Comment

The Comment parameter specifies an optional comment. If you specify a value that contains spaces, enclose the value in quotation marks ("), for example: "This is an admin note".

Type:String
Position:Named
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:False
Accept wildcard characters:False
Applies to:Office 365 Security & Compliance Center
-Confirm

The Confirm switch specifies whether to show or hide the confirmation prompt. How this switch affects the cmdlet depends on if the cmdlet requires confirmation before proceeding.

  • Destructive cmdlets (for example, Remove-* cmdlets) have a built-in pause that forces you to acknowledge the command before proceeding. For these cmdlets, you can skip the confirmation prompt by using this exact syntax: -Confirm:$false.

  • Most other cmdlets (for example, New-* and Set-* cmdlets) don't have a built-in pause. For these cmdlets, specifying the Confirm switch without a value introduces a pause that forces you acknowledge the command before proceeding.

-Priority

The Priority parameter specifies a priority value for the policy that determines the order of policy processing. A lower integer value indicates a higher priority, the value 0 is the highest priority, and policies can't have the same priority value.

Valid values and the default value for this parameter depend on the number of existing policies. For example, if there are 5 existing policies:

  • Valid priority values for the existing 5 policies are from 0 through 4.

  • Valid priority values for a new 6th policy are from 0 through 5.

  • The default value for a new 6th policy is 5.

If you modify the priority value of a policy, the position of the policy in the list changes to match the priority value you specify. In other words, if you set the priority value of a policy to the same value as an existing policy, the priority value of the existing policy and all other lower priority policies after it is increased by 1.
