Description

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 --------------------------

Set-DlpPolicy "Employee Numbers" -State Disabled

This example disables the DLP policy named Employee Numbers.

Required Parameters

-Identity

The Identity parameter specifies the DLP policy you want to modify. You can use any value that uniquely identifies the DLP policy. For example, you can specify the name, GUID or distinguished name (DN) of the DLP policy.

Type:DlpPolicyIdParameter
Position:1
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:True
Accept wildcard characters:False
Applies to:Exchange Server 2013, Exchange Server 2016

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.

Type:SwitchParameter
Aliases:cf
Position:Named
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:False
Accept wildcard characters:False
Applies to:Exchange Server 2013, Exchange Server 2016
-Description

The Description parameter specifies an optional description for the DLP policy.

Type:String
Position:Named
Default value:None

-DomainController

This parameter is available only in on-premises Exchange.

The DomainController parameter specifies the domain controller that's used by this cmdlet to read data from or write data to Active Directory. You identify the domain controller by its fully qualified domain name (FQDN). For example, dc01.contoso.com.

Type:Fqdn
Position:Named
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:False
Accept wildcard characters:False
Applies to:Exchange Server 2013, Exchange Server 2016
-Mode

The Mode parameter specifies the action and notification level of the DLP policy. Valid values for this parameter are:

  • Audit: When a message matches the conditions specified by the DLP policy, the actions specified by the policy aren't enforced and no notification emails are sent.

  • AuditAndNotify: When a message matches the conditions specified by the DLP policy, the actions specified by the policy aren't enforced, but notification emails are sent.

  • Enforce: When a message matches the conditions specified by the DLP policy, the actions specified by the policy are enforced and notification emails are sent.

If the State parameter is set to Disabled, the value of the Mode parameter is irrelevant.

Type:Audit | AuditAndNotify | Enforce

Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:False
Accept wildcard characters:False
