MC442111: Microsoft Purview Information Protection: User-defined permissions support domain name restrictions

Updated October 21, 2022: We have updated the rollout timeline below. Thank you for your patience.

Coming soon to public preview and general availability, we’re updating the options for custom permissions, also referred to as user-defined permissions, to support domain name restrictions.

This message is associated with Microsoft 365 Roadmap ID 98131.

When you choose a sensitivity label configured for user-defined permissions, they can now use domain names to restrict file access to specific individuals, or to all individuals from that domain. For example, you can specify “[email protected]” or “@example.com” and permissions will be restricted based on those parameters.

When this will happen

Rollout to public preview will begin in mid-November (previously mid-October) and is expected to be complete by late November (previously late October).

Rollout to general availability will begin in early December (previously early November) and is expected to be complete by end of December (previously end of November).

How this will affect your organization

Within Microsoft Office files (Word, Excel, PowerPoint), when you choose a sensitivity label configured for user-defined permissions, you can now use domain names to restrict file access to specific individuals, or to all individuals from that domain. For example, you can specify “[email protected]” or “@example.com” and permissions will be restricted based on those parameters.

What you need to do to prepare

If you have previously configured user-defined permissions for your organization, no further action is needed to enable this feature.

Configure and manage sensitivity labels in the Microsoft Purview compliance portal.
