Description

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

Note: Don't use a piped Foreach-Object command when adding or removing scope locations: "Value1","Value2",..."ValueN" | Foreach-Object {Set-DlpCompliancePolicy -Identity "Main PII" -RemoveExchangeLocation $_}.

Examples

Example 1

Set-DlpCompliancePolicy -Identity "Main PII" -AddSharePointLocation "https://my.url1","https://my.url2" -AddOneDriveLocation "https://my.url3","https://my.url4"

This example adds the specified URLs to the SharePoint Online and OneDrive for Business locations for the DLP policy named Main PII without affecting the existing URL values.

Example 2

Set-DlpCompliancePolicy -Identity MainPII -Mode Disable

This example disables the "MainPII" policy.

Example 3

Set-DlpCompliancePolicy -Identity "PowerBIPolicy" -AddPowerBILocation "workspaceID1","workspaceID2","workspaceID3"

This example adds the specified workspace IDs to the Power BI location for the DLP policy named PowerBIPolicy without affecting the existing workspace IDs.

Parameters

-AddEndpointDlpLocation

Note: This parameter requires membership in the Compliance administrator or Compliance data administrator roles in Azure Active Directory.

The AddEndpointDLPLocation parameter specifies the user accounts to add to the list of included accounts for Endpoint DLP if you used the value All for the EndpointDLPLocation parameter. You identify the account by name or email address.

To enter multiple values, use the following syntax: <value1>,<value2>,...<valueX>. If the values contain spaces or otherwise require quotation marks, use the following syntax: "<value1>","<value2>",..."<valueX>".

For more information about Endpoint DLP, see Learn about Endpoint data loss prevention.

-AddExchangeLocation

The AddExchangeLocation parameter adds email messages to the DLP policy if they're not already included. The valid value for this parameter is All.

If the policy doesn't already include email messages (in the output of the Get-DlpCompliancePolicy cmdlet, the ExchangeLocation property value is blank), you can use this parameter in the following procedures:

  • If you use -AddExchangeLocation All by itself, the policy applies to email for all users.

  • To include email of specific group members in the policy, use -AddExchangeLocation All with the ExchangeSenderMemberOf parameter in the same command. Only email of members of the specified groups is included in the policy.

  • To exclude email of specific group members from the policy, use -AddExchangeLocation All with the ExchangeSenderMemberOfException parameter in the same command. Only email of members of the specified groups is excluded from the policy.

-AddOneDriveLocation

The AddOneDriveLocation parameter adds OneDrive for Business sites to the DLP policy if they're not already included. The valid value for this parameter is All.

If the policy doesn't already include OneDrive for Business sites (in the output of the Get-DlpCompliancePolicy cmdlet, the OneDriveLocation property value is blank), you can use this parameter in the following procedures:

  • If you use -AddOneDriveLocation All by itself, the policy applies to all OneDrive for Business sites.

  • To include sites of specific OneDrive accounts in the policy, use -AddOneDriveLocation All and the OneDriveSharedBy parameter to specify the users. Only the sites of the specified users are included in the policy.

  • To include sites of specific group members in the policy, use -AddOneDriveLocation All and the OneDriveSharedByMemberOf parameter to specify the groups. Only the sites of members of the specified groups are included in the policy.

  • To exclude sites of specific OneDrive accounts from the policy, use -AddOneDriveLocation All and the ExceptIfOneDriveSharedBy parameter to specify the users. Only sites of the specified users are excluded from the policy.

  • To exclude sites of specific group members from the policy, use -AddOneDriveLocation All and the ExceptIfOneDriveSharedByMemberOf parameter to specify the groups. Only sites of members of the specified groups are excluded from the policy.

You can't specify inclusions and exclusions in the same policy.

Note: Although this parameter accepts site URLs, don't specify site URLs values. Use the OneDriveSharedBy, ExceptIfOneDriveShareBy, OneDriveSharedByMemberOf, and ExceptIfOneDriveSharedByMemberOf parameters instead. In the DLP policy settings in the Microsoft 365 Defender portal, you can't specify sites to include or exclude by URL; you specify sites to include or exclude only by users or groups.

  • 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.

Type:PswsHashtable
Position:Named
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:False

-Priority

The Priority parameter specifies a priority value for the policy that determines the order of policy processing. A lower integer value indicates a higher priority, the value 0 is the highest priority, and policies can't have the same priority value.

Valid values and the default value for this parameter depend on the number of existing policies. For example, if there are 5 existing policies:

  • Valid priority values for the existing 5 policies are from 0 through 4.
  • Valid priority values for a new 6th policy are from 0 through 5.
  • The default value for a new 6th policy is 5.

If you modify the priority value of a policy, the position of the policy in the list changes to match the priority value you specify. In other words, if you set the priority value of a policy to the same value as an existing policy, the priority value of the existing policy and all other lower priority policies after it is increased by 1.

-RetryDistribution

The RetryDistribution switch redistributes the policy to all Exchange, OneDrive for Business, and SharePoint Online locations. You don't need to specify a value with this switch.

Locations whose initial distributions succeeded aren't included in the retry. Policy distribution errors are reported if you used this switch.

Note: Because the process of retrying distribution is a significant operation, run it only if necessary and for one policy at a time. It is not intended to be run every time you update a policy. If you run a script to update multiple policies, wait until the policy distribution is successful before running the command again for the next policy.
