AIP supportability for Office 365 Business Premium Subscriptions
Azure Information Protection is only supported for E3 and E5 plans at the moment. Business Premium supportability is critical as lots of our clients are obligated by this barrier.
In the coming AIP September GA we will update the Office client requirement with the following:
“Office 365 with Office 2016 apps (minimum version 1805, build 9330.2078) when the user is assigned a license for Azure Rights Management (also known as Azure Information Protection for Office 365)”
This will allow the support of the AIP client to use protection labels in other Office subscriptions which are not ProPlus. This will require the use of Office clients which are newer then the version mentioned above and the end user should be assigned with the proper licence.
My understanding is that there are enhancements coming in "Summer 2018" that will allow users to access the missing "Permission" button in the same way they can if they have ProPlus (see https://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/mt846681.aspx)
"13 Office Client support for some ATP features in Microsoft 365 Business will be enabled in Summer 2018. "
I don't get why BP + a separate AIP license is not supported? The customer is paying for the functionality but it doesn't actually work?
Please can you work on the feature to apply labels that have protection settings within Office 365 business premium clients.
I'm really shocked that this is not supported with Office 365 business premium !!
Please can someone make it compatible so users can classify documents as confidential using this client version.
To clarify the restrictions, users of Office 365 Business Premium CAN use AIP to classify content, what they can’t do with this client is to apply labels that have protection settings.
