Set up and manage enhanced image tagging in Microsoft Syntex

The image tagging service for Microsoft Syntex is set up in the Microsoft 365 admin center.



Before you can use image tagging in Syntex, you must first link an Azure subscription in Syntex pay-as-you-go. Image tagging in Syntex is billed based on the type and number of transactions.


You must have Global admin or SharePoint admin permissions to be able to access the Microsoft 365 admin center and set up image tagging in Syntex.

Set up image tagging

After an Azure subscription is linked to Microsoft Syntex, image tagging will be automatically set up and enabled for all SharePoint sites.

Although you enable pay-as-you-go billing for image tagging, you'll be charged only when image tagging is enabled on a document library.

Manage sites

By default, image tagging is available for libraries on all SharePoint sites. To turn off image tagging on all sites, follow these steps.

  1. In the Microsoft 365 admin center, select Setup, and then select Use content AI with Microsoft Syntex.

  2. On the Use content AI with Microsoft Syntex page, select Manage Microsoft Syntex.

  3. On the Manage Microsoft Syntex page, select Image tagging.

  4. On the Image tagging page, select No libraries, and then select Save.
