Configure archiving disclaimers for external users in Skype for Business Server 2015

Summary: Read this topic to learn how to configure an archiving disclaimer for Skype for Business Server 2015.

If your organization communicates with external partners, you need to let them know that you are archiving communications with them. When you deploy an Edge Server and enable federation for your organization, you are asked whether you want to automatically send an archiving disclaimer to external partners.

If you need to change this configuration, you can use the Skype for Business Server Control Panel or the Windows PowerShell Set-CsAccessEdgeConfiguration cmdlet. Cmdlets can be run either from the Skype for Business Server management shell or from a remote session of Windows PowerShell.

To enable external users to collaborate with users in your Skype for Business Server deployment, you must also configure at least one external access policy to support external user access. For details, see Manage XMPP Federated Partners for Your Organization. For details about controlling access for specific federated domains, see Control Access by Individual Federated Domains.
