How to Replace an MIP label with different MIP Label

This section of the page elaborates the process of replacing an MIP with different MIP label. Following are the steps:

*Note: Create MIP labels in Azure portal before applying this feature.

  1. The first step is to create a policy in the PEM Administrator. Policies are the set of instructions that get implemented on the data whenever a target is executed. These policies are responsible for controlling the end user experience, configuring, specifying administrative policy keys for the use by Audit, Discovery, Data Loss Prevention (DLP) processes, and technology. In case, if no policy is defined, the user will automatically lie in the default policy i.e., Site Wide. To know how to create a policy, refer Define Policies.

  2. The next step is to define a filter in the Discovery Bundles/Regex/Dictionary screen. These are the sensitive types which the PEM Agent locates in the file. To know on how to create bundles, refer the following:

    1. To create Discovery bundle, refer Create a Discovery Bundle.

    2. To define regex, refer Add Regular Expressions.

    3. To add entries in Dictionary, refer Add Custom Dictionaries.

  3. In this step, define a remediation action which will take place on the file. While creating remediation action, select the MIP as an option and opt for the Application and the associated label with it. To know more on how to create a remediation action for an MIP, refer Create Remediation Action.

  4. In this step, use the existing File Protection Policy to replace the already applied MIP labels on the file with a new label. This can be done by opting the label from the MIP Azure label drop-down. To know more on how to create a File Protection Policy, refer Add a File Protection Policy.

  5. In the last step, use the existing Target which defines the scope of File Protection Policy where it will be executed. To know more on how to create a target, refer Add a Persistent Target.

Once the remediation takes place successfully, older MIP labels get replaced with the new ones for the selected targets.

View Results

Once a target is executed successfully, DSI (Data Security Intelligence) event gets generated in the Reporting screen, where you can view the details for the event. Apart from the DSI event, you can also check results in the Dashboard screen by adding panels as per requirements.
