Applies To: Office 365, Windows Azure Rights Management
Share a document that you have rights-protected with another user and ask that user to open the document.
Note If this is the first time that the user has used IRM functionality, their IRM client will have to contact the Windows Azure Rights Management service for configuration, which requires the user to enter their credentials.
The user enters their Office 365 credentials to complete configuration of the Office IRM client.
If the user is authorized, the document will open with the usage restrictions that you defined.
