Remove-DlpSensitiveInformationType

This cmdlet is available only in Security & Compliance Center PowerShell. For more information, see Security & Compliance Center PowerShell.

Use the Remove-DlpSensitiveInformationType cmdlet to remove sensitive information type rules that use document fingerprints. You can't use this cmdlet to remove built-in sensitive information type rules.

For information about the parameter sets in the Syntax section below, see Exchange cmdlet syntax.

Syntax

Remove-DlpSensitiveInformationType
      [-Identity] <DataClassificationIdParameter>
      [-Confirm]
      [-WhatIf]
      [<CommonParameters>]

Description

Sensitive information type rule packages are used by data loss prevention (DLP) to detect sensitive content in messages.

Note: A "ManagementObjectNotFoundException" error means there was a synchronization problem between the Security & Compliance Center and Exchange Online. This happens when you try to remove data classifications that are being used in mail flow rules (also known as transport rules). You can remove the mail flow rule, wait for synchronization to finish, and then add the rule back.

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

Remove-DlpSensitiveInformationType "Contoso Confidential"

This example removes the sensitive information type rule named "Contoso Confidential".

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.
