Import-DlpPolicyCollection

 

Applies to: Exchange Server 2013, Exchange Online

Topic Last Modified: 2012-10-16

Use the Import-DlpPolicyCollection cmdlet to import data loss prevention (DLP) policy collections into your organization.

For information about the parameter sets in the Syntax section below, see Syntax.

Import-DlpPolicyCollection -FileData <Byte[]> [-Identity <DlpPolicyIdParameter>] [-Confirm [<SwitchParameter>]] [-DomainController <Fqdn>] [-Force <SwitchParameter>] [-Organization <OrganizationIdParameter>] [-WhatIf [<SwitchParameter>]]

This example imports the DLP policy collection in the file C:\My Documents\DLP Backup.xml.

Import-DlpPolicyCollection -FileData ([Byte[]]$(Get-Content -Path " C:\My Documents\DLP Backup.xml " -Encoding Byte -ReadCount 0))

The Import-DlpPolicyCollection cmdlet imports all the settings of the DLP policies and the associated transport rules. You use the Export-DlpPolicyCollection cmdlet to export the DLP policy collection.

CautionCaution:
Importing a DLP policy collection from an XML file removes or overwrites all pre-existing DLP policies that were defined in your organization. Make sure that you have a backup of your current DLP policy collection before you import and overwrite your current DLP policies.

You need to be assigned permissions before you can run this cmdlet. Although all parameters for this cmdlet are listed in this topic, you may not have access to some parameters if they're not included in the permissions assigned to you. To see what permissions you need, see the "Data loss prevention (DLP)" entry in the Messaging Policy and Compliance Permissions topic.

 

Parameter Required Type Description

FileData

Required

System.Byte[]

The FileData parameter specifies the DLP policy collection file you want to import.

For more information about the syntax required to use this parameter, see Syntax.

Confirm

Optional

System.Management.Automation.SwitchParameter

The Confirm switch causes the command to pause processing and requires you to acknowledge what the command will do before processing continues. You don't have to specify a value with the Confirm switch.

DomainController

Optional

Microsoft.Exchange.Data.Fqdn

The DomainController parameter specifies the fully qualified domain name (FQDN) of the domain controller that writes this configuration change to Active Directory.

Force

Optional

System.Management.Automation.SwitchParameter

The Force switch specifies whether to suppress warning or confirmation messages. This switch can be used when the task is run programmatically and prompting for administrative input is inappropriate. If the Force switch isn't provided in the command, you're prompted for administrative input. You don't have to specify a value with this parameter.

Identity

Optional

Microsoft.Exchange.MessagingPolicies.CompliancePrograms.Tasks.DlpPolicyIdParameter

The Identity parameter specifies the name of the DLP policy you want to import. The DLP policy must exist in the XML file you specify with the FileData parameter.

Organization

Optional

Microsoft.Exchange.Configuration.Tasks.OrganizationIdParameter

The Organization parameter is reserved for internal Microsoft use.

WhatIf

Optional

System.Management.Automation.SwitchParameter

The WhatIf switch instructs the command to simulate the actions that it would take on the object. By using the WhatIf switch, you can view what changes would occur without having to apply any of those changes. You don't have to specify a value with the WhatIf switch.
