Set up and manage unstructured document processing in Microsoft Syntex

The unstructured document processing service for Microsoft Syntex is set up in the Microsoft 365 admin center.



Before you can use unstructured document processing in Syntex, you must first link an Azure subscription in Syntex pay-as-you-go. Unstructured document processing 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 unstructured document processing in Syntex.

Set up unstructured document processing

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

Manage sites

By default, unstructured document processing is turned on for libraries in all SharePoint sites. Follow these steps to manage which SharePoint sites users can use to create custom models to process files.

  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 Unstructured document processing.

  4. On the Unstructured document processing page:

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


    Disabling a site after a model is made available to process files on that site will not disable the model. Models can still be used to process files and incur charges. A model can be made available to process files by being created either on that site or in a content center.

    b. To restrict user access to this service, select No SharePoint libraries or Libraries in selected SharePoint 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.
