Set up and manage taxonomy tagging in Microsoft Syntex

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



Before you can use taxonomy tagging in Syntex, you must first link an Azure subscription in Syntex pay-as-you-go. Taxonomy 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 taxonomy tagging in Syntex.

Set up taxonomy tagging

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

Manage sites

By default, taxonomy tagging is available for libraries on all SharePoint sites. Follow these steps to limit which sites users can apply taxonomy tagging.

  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 Taxonomy tagging.

  4. On the Taxonomy tagging page:

    a. Choose which site or sites this service should be enabled for.


    You can enable taxonomy tagging only at the site level, and it will work for any subsites under the site. Enabling only for a particular subsite is not supported.

    b. To restrict user access to this service, select No sites or Selected sites and follow the instructions to either select the sites or upload a CSV listing a maximum of 100 sites. Be sure to add your content center site if you want it to be included. You can then manage site access permissions for the sites you selected.

    c. Select Save.
