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

Use the Remove-HoldCompliancePolicy cmdlet to remove retention policies from the Security & Compliance Center. This cmdlet also removes the corresponding retention rule.

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

Syntax

Remove-RetentionCompliancePolicy
      [-Identity] <PolicyIdParameter>
      [-Confirm]
      [-ForceDeletion]
      [-WhatIf]
      [<CommonParameters>]

Description

New policies are not valid and will not be applied until a retention rule is added to the policy. In addition, at least one location parameter must be defined to create a retention policy.

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-RetentionCompliancePolicy -Identity "Regulation 123 Compliance"

This example removes the retention policy named "Regulation 123 Compliance".

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.
