Adding a MIP Account

To provision an account for Microsoft Information Protection (MIP) on the Cloud App Security management console, you need to have one of the following licenses which include a MIP service plan:

  • Microsoft 365 E5/A5/G5/E3/A3/G3

  • Office 365 E5/A5/E3/A3

  • Information Protection for Office 365 - Standard

  1. Log on to the Cloud App Security management console.
  2. Go to Administration > Service Account.
  3. Click Add, hover over the organization for which you need to provision services, and select Microsoft Information Protection from the list that appears on the right side.

    Microsoft Information Protection appears in the list only if you have provisioned a service account for at least one of the SharePoint Online, OneDrive, Microsoft Teams (Teams), Microsoft Teams (Chat), and Exchange Online services.
