This cmdlet is available in on-premises Exchange and in the cloud-based service. Some parameters and settings may be exclusive to one environment or the other. Use the Export-DlpPolicyCollection cmdlet to export data loss prevention (DLP) policy collections from your organization to a file. For information about the parameter sets in the Syntax section below, see Exchange cmdlet syntax (https://technet.microsoft.com/library/bb123552.aspx).

Syntax

Export-DlpPolicyCollection

Description

The Export-DlpPolicyCollection cmdlet exports the settings of the DLP policies and the associated transport rules. You use the Import-DlpPolicyCollection to import the DLP policy collection into your organization.

You need to be assigned permissions before you can run this cmdlet. Although this topic lists all parameters for the cmdlet, you may not have access to some parameters if they're not included in the permissions assigned to you. To find the permissions required to run any cmdlet or parameter in your organization, see Find the permissions required to run any Exchange cmdlet (https://technet.microsoft.com/library/mt432940.aspx).

Examples

-------------------------- Example 1 --------------------------

$file = Export-DlpPolicyCollection; Set-Content -Path "C:\My Documents\Contoso PII.xml" -Value $file.FileData -Encoding Byte

This example exports all the elements of the existing DLP policies to the file C:\My Documents\Contoso PII.xml.

Optional Parameters

-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.
