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, configure user accounts by using either the Microsoft Online Administration Console or the Exchange Online Control Panel. Also, it's a good idea to create mail-enabled security groups in Exchange Online ahead of time.
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.
