  1. AIP Scanner - Add capability to forcefully override an already-classified document

    In AIP Scanner, there should be a capability to enforce the overriding of label regardless of MatchPolicy setting is On or Off.

    I am working with a customer who has a genuine requirement of overriding the labels for bulk files.

    For example, AIP is configured to enforce a default label when user creates or saves a file. but later-on user moves this file to an AIP-repository (file share or SharePoint library), which is configured to apply another label.

    Unfortunately currently AIP Scanner does not support this basic scenario. Currently, to make this scenario work, this another-label must have an automatic…

    • When encryption is added on existing labels automatically update documents via scanner and client

      It can be useful to start a deployment with Labels only, without protection, that the end-users can get a feeling for this technology. It also helps avoid incompatibility issues (e.g. if a document repository or LOB app doesn't support protection yet).

      After the users are comfortable with the technology and the potential issues have been addressed existing labels should be changed and have encryption added (without creating new labels, just change the existing ones).

      The AIP Scanner should be able to automatically add protection to the documents that were labeled with these labels before protection was incorporated. The clients should…

      • Apply default label to SharePoint and OneDrive docs

        Users may uninstall AIP client to attempt to circumvent AIP or just because they find it annoying. If the default label could be applied to any documents in SharePoint or OneDrive could be applied even if AIP client is not present, it would alleviate this potential security end-run.

        Typically, end-users will not have admin rights to uninstall applications, but some times it is inescapable, esp in a small business.

        • Allow to edit headers and footers and don't clear after save

          Allow users to edit headers and footers. Sometimes it is necessary to put the access group according to the classification.
          For example: Information Classification: Confidential Access group: Finance
          When I edit the headers or footers and save the text, the text is cleared.

          • Support Default Label for Bulk Email Processes

            When you don't select a default label, users are required to manually select a label. Although this is great for live users, it interferes with bulk email distribution scripts, because the process stops to wait for the selection of a label for each automatically generated email. We need to assign a default label that applies only for bulk email processes. Either that, or provide standard code that can be included in bulk email scripts to enable the assignment of an appropriate default label.

            • Combine label with retention policy settings mainly emails in outlook.com

              For usability reasons it would make terrible sense that emails could also be applied with a retention policy when applying a sub lable.
              Or is this possible via quick actions?

              • Enforce Classification on Print/QuickPrint

                Enforce Classification of document before print or quick print. i.e. a user opens an unclassified document to print. The system should force the user to classify; otherwise, the document will not be printed.

                This will help enforcing a classification even if document is printed as PDF file.

                • Automatically classify e-mail with modern attachment (link sharing)

                  Currently there is an auto step-up (of a lower e-mail label towards a higher file label) if we attach a file within the e-mail

                  With Modern Attachment (Share as OneDrive link), the auto step-up isn't working.

                  This doesn't make sense and isn't consistent for the user which may lead to dangerous labeling mistakes (having user thinking the e-mail will automatically label from itself).

                  This is especially problematic since the Modern Attachment is often coupled with "anyone who gets the link gets access" which means that the body is at least as important as if it would be a regular "payload"…

                  • Distinguish sensitivity level of sub labels under the same parent label

                    we have a use case where we need to distinguish the sensitivity level of sub labels under the same parent label. For example, if we have two sub labels under the same parent label. We would like the second sub label has a higher sensitivity level than the first one.

                    • Allow use of Document Metadata (Managed Properties) in conditions to auto apply labels

                      Allow use of Document Metadata (Managed Properties) in conditions to auto apply labels. For exemple: use the managed property "content type" to define a condition to apply a label.

                      "content type:<xxxxx>"

                      Thank you!

                      • Manually classify incoming emails on reception.\

                        I have a customer that wants to classify incoming emails manually. But the lablebar do not show on incoming email. You can click to show the labelbar but not change existing (non existing) label.

                          We are evaluating this request and need more input into how this feature should behave to meet your needs.
                          We will have automatic classification of inbound emails at the transport level, but this request calls for manual classification on the endpoint. A few clarifying questions:
                          1) What is the use case for classifying a received email? Who would use that classification and how?
                          2) Would protection need to be applied on the classified email (even when it’s not being replied)?
                          3) A user should not be able to change the classification of emails in other people’s mailbox, so as the request is defined classification would be only on the local mailbox of the recipient doing it. What happens if someone else replies to the same thread, which they didn’t classify, so the replies are no longer classified. Would that be a problem?

                        • Add option to automatically classify attachment document same as email classification label

                          Please add a configurable option in Azure AIP policy to enforce the same classification label on attached unclassified-document as email classification label.

                          This feature will only be enforced on unclassified-attachment. If attached document already has a label, then this feature will not be enforced.

                          Organization should be able to enable or disable this feature in the AIP policy. This will help to ensure that no document goes unclassified if sent via enterprise email system.

                              Now you can add url's but they aren't clickable. it would be nice if you could add a link users can click on

                                    • Separate the labeling permission from the Save As, Export right

                                      We need to allow Save As permissions on files without allowing the ability to change the label. This is a security requirement because many users open existing files, Save As a new file for a new project, but shouldn't be able to change the label, which protects the file with the label policy.

                                      • disable send button in outlook for internal label

                                        Would be very convenient, if AIP can disable the send button when a specific label is chosen, such as 'internal', else if for instance a custom label of "internal" is selected, then the user when he presses the send button, a window will popup that he is not allowed to send this email when internal label is selected. already saw this feature from a third party software.

                                        • Prevent externals from changing the AIP classification label of a document

                                          Consider the following, real world, scenario:

                                          - Alan works for Company X. Alan creates a Word document in his OneDrive and apply the AIP label "Confidential".
                                          - Alan shares the document with Bill in Company Y via a document share in OneDrive. Alan allows Bill to edit the document.
                                          - Bill opens the document in Word.

                                          Bill sees Company X's AIP confidential label information in the yellow bar. That's good. However, Bill can edit the document and change the classification of the document to one in Company Y's tenancy. That's bad. See the attached screenshot.

                                          There should be an option…
