Set-DlpEdmSchema

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

Use the Set-DlpEdmSchema cmdlet to modify exact data match (EDM) data loss prevention (DLP) schemas in the Microsoft 365 compliance center.

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

Syntax

Set-DlpEdmSchema
   [-FileData] <Byte[]>
   [-Confirm]
   [-WhatIf]
   [<CommonParameters>]

Description

For an explanation and example of the EDM schema, see Define the schema for your database of sensitive information.

To use this cmdlet in Security & Compliance Center PowerShell, you need to be assigned permissions. For more information, see Permissions in the Microsoft 365 compliance center.

Examples

Example 1

$edmSchemaXml = Get-Content "C:\My Documents\edm.xml" -Encoding Byte -ReadCount 0
Set-DlpEdmSchema -FileData $edmSchemaXml -Confirm:$true

This example modifies a DLP EDM schema. The first command reads the schema in the XML file to a variable, and the second command uses that information to modify the DLP EDM schema.

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.

-FileData

The FileData parameter specifies the DLP EDM schema that you want to import.

A valid value for this parameter requires you to read the file to a byte-encoded object using the Get-Content cmdlet. For example, ([Byte[]](Get-Content -Encoding Byte -Path "C:\My Documents\<filename>" -ReadCount 0)).
