Applies To: Azure Rights Management, Office 365
After you have signed up for a cloud subscription and established your organization with an account for Microsoft Office 365 or Azure Active Directory, you’re ready to enable the Rights Management service.
However, before you do so, make sure that the following are in place:
User accounts and groups in the cloud that you create manually or that are automatically created and synchronized from Active Directory Domain Services. For more information about directory synchronization options and instructions, see Directory synchronization roadmap.
Mail-enabled groups in the cloud that you will use with Rights Management.
By default, Rights Management is disabled when you sign up for your Office 365 or Azure AD account. To enable Rights Management for your organization, you must activate the service. For more information, see Activating Azure Rights Management.
