Description

The Get-SqlSensitivityRecommendations gets the recommended sensitivity labels and information types for columns in the database. The cmdlet does not return values for columns that already have sensitivity label or information type defined.

The sensitivity labels and information types of columns can be viewed using SQL Server Management Studio (SSMS) release 17.5 and above, the Extended Properties catalog view, or the Get-SqlSensitivityClassification cmdlet.

The sensitivity labels and information types of columns can be set using SQL Server Management Studio (SSMS) release 17.5 and above, or with the Set-SqlSensitivityClassification cmdlet.
