I recently had the opportunity to actually deployed hosted IRM for a customer with Exchange Online. Now there are some restrictions to this which is you only get what the templates are you don’t have the ability to customize the templates. If you want this then AADRM should be deployed on premise and then connected to Exchange Online.
Before we start the following needs to be installed locally:
Sign in Assistant: http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=39267
Then download the Azure AD Module for PowerShell – http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/p/?linkid=236297 – Note this is the 64 bit version if you are running 32 bit go herehttp://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/p/?linkid=236298
Then download the Azure AD RM Tools – http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=30339 – Note this states 2010 but is the current version as of writing.
Then open PowerShell on your machine and run the following commands
Connect-aadrmservice – you will be then prompted for credentials enter your admin account on the tenant.
Then run get-aadrmconfiguration – and look for functionalstate is enabled this proves it has been enabled successfully for your tenant.
Then run the following command to connect to Exchange Online
$Sess = New-PSSession -ConfigurationName Microsoft.Exchange -ConnectionUri https://ps.outlook.com/powershell/ -Credential $Cred -Authentication Basic -AllowRedirection Import-PSSession $Sess
Once connected run
Set-IRMConfiguration –RMSOnlineKeySharingLocation “https://sp-rms.eu.aadrm.com/TenantManagement/ServicePartner.svc“
Note this is for the EMEA region if you want the other regions they are listed below:
https://sp-rms.na.aadrm.com/TenantManagement/ServicePartner.svc for North America
https://sp-rms.ap.aadrm.com/TenantManagement/ServicePartner.svc for Asia Pacific
Import-RMSTrustedPublishingDomain -RMSOnline -name “RMS Online”
Set-IRMConfiguration -InternalLicensingEnabled $true
Test-IRMConfiguration –sender firstname.lastname@example.org – note this is an dummy account replace the name and the domain for the tenant you are trying it out on.
You should get back the following:
After this time I have noticed that it can take up to 24 hours for it to work in OWA but in Outlook it should be instant. Viola you are free to play and test with.
Now from this you have the ability to create rules that will also apply these templates otherwise by default a user will have to select them for each email.
