You need to be assigned permissions in the Office 365 Security & Compliance Center before you can use this cmdlet. For more information, see Permissions in Office 365 Security & Compliance Center (https://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/p/?LinkId=511920).

Examples

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

New-HoldComplianceRule -Name SeptOneYear -Policy "Internal Company Policy" -ContentDateFrom "09/10/14 5:00 PM" -ContentDateTo "09/10/15 5:00 PM" -HoldContent Unlimited

This example creates a new preservation rule named SeptOneYear and adds it to the existing preservation policy named "Internal Company Policy". Content created or updated between the specified dates will be held indefinitely.

Required Parameters

-Name

The Name parameter specifies a unique name for the preservation rule. If the value contains spaces, enclose the value in quotation marks.

Type:String
Position:1
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:False
Accept wildcard characters:False
Applies to:Office 365 Security & Compliance Center
-Policy

The Policy parameter specifies the policy to contain the rule.

Type:PolicyIdParameter
Position:Named
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:False
Accept wildcard characters:False

Optional 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.
