We’re rolling out a new Exact Data Match (EDM) UI wizard experience to provide a more simplified and automated way to configure EDM sensitive information types (SITs) in the Microsoft Purview compliance portal. This message is associated with Microsoft 365 Roadmap ID 88895.
An updated Exact Data Match (EDM) UI wizard will supplement the current wizard in the Microsoft Purview compliance portal, offering both an improved manual configuration as well as a new guided experience.
When this will happen
Rollout will begin in mid-August and is expected to be complete by late August.
How this will affect your organization
The new wizard in the Microsoft Purview compliance portal will enable easier and quicker configuration of EDM SITs and utilizes automation to reduce manual inputs. This new UI includes a guided experience that suggests the most accurate SITs to consider for the EDM configuration, which is based on an analysis of sample data supplied by the admin; the sample data uploaded should be representative of the actual specific sensitive data that is to be protected through the use of EDM.
What you need to do to prepare
To explore the updated EDM wizard, visit the Microsoft Purview compliance portal > Data classification > Exact data matches, and use the toggle to switch between the legacy UI and the new EDM experience.
