    Hello @Rana Senojak (SCHL),

    For on-premises, the scanner can support all files but needs configuration: Install and configure the Microsoft Purview Information Protection scanner - Microsoft Purview (compliance) | Microsoft Learn

    For SharePoint Online (and OneDrive), the scanner isn't supported and the equivalent is an auto-labeling policy.  But it has a restricted list of files supported:

    Specific to auto-labeling for SharePoint and OneDrive:

    o   Office files for Word (.docx), PowerPoint (.pptx), and Excel (.xlsx) are supported.

    o   These files can be auto-labeled at rest before or after the auto-labeling policies are created. Files can't be auto-labeled if they're part of an open session (the file is open).

    o   Currently, attachments to list items aren't supported and won't be auto-labeled.


    PDF is on the horizontal, but that isn't mentioned as one of the file types needed for labeling.

    The only other option I'm aware of for these specific file types is to use the MIP SDK - you can read more about how the different file types are supported here: File types supported - Microsoft Information Protection SDK | Microsoft Learn 

    Hope this helps.
