Applies to: Exchange Server 2013

This topic no longer applies to the cloud-based service. It applies only to on-premises Exchange 2013. To see the current version of the topic that applies to the cloud-based service, change the (v=exchg.150) value in the URL to (v=exchg.160).

Use the Export-DlpPolicyCollection cmdlet to export data loss prevention (DLP) policy collections from your organization to a file.

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

Export-DlpPolicyCollection [-Identity <DlpPolicyIdParameter>] [-Confirm [<SwitchParameter>]] [-DomainController <Fqdn>] [-Organization <OrganizationIdParameter>] [-WhatIf [<SwitchParameter>]]

This example exports all the elements of the existing DLP policies to the file C:\My Documents\Contoso PII.xml.

$file = Export-DlpPolicyCollection
Set-Content -Path "C:\My Documents\Contoso PII.xml" -Value $file.FileData -Encoding Byte

The Export-DlpPolicyCollection cmdlet exports the settings of the DLP policies and the associated transport rules. You use the Import-DlpPolicyCollection to import the DLP policy collection into your organization.

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




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.




This parameter is available only in on-premises Exchange 2013.

The DomainController parameter specifies the fully qualified domain name (FQDN) of the domain controller that retrieves data from Active Directory.




The Identity parameter specifies the DLP policy you want to export. You can use any value that uniquely identifies the DLP policy. For example, you can specify the name, GUID, or distinguished name (DN) of the DLP policy.




The Organization parameter is reserved for internal Microsoft use.




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.
