Subscribing to DLP Events

After your BMC Remedy ITSM application is successfully registered with Microsoft Office 365, you can configure your ITSM application to subscribe to DLP events from Microsoft Office 365. Subscribing ensures that the enriched DLP events are received by ITSM to further create DLP Incidents and route them to the appropriate compliance group.

Assignment routing of the DLP events is critical to ensure data compliance.

Subscribe to DLP events

Subscribe to DLP events so that DLP incidents can be created in BMC Remedy ITSM. After you register your BMC Remedy ITSM application with Microsoft Office 365, you can subscribe to either Microsoft SharePoint or Microsoft Exchange events.

You can subscribe to the following events:

  • Microsoft SharePoint - To track document violations in SharePoint O365 that match one or more DLP rule conditions.
  • Microsoft Exchange - To track email violations in Exchange O365 with content that matches one or more DLP rule conditions.


DLP.ALL - This subscription returns the sensitive data along with the DLP events. To enable this, select Yes for the Include Sensitive Data for Active Subscriptions option and click Apply. This will subscribe you to receive sensitive information if the application created in Azure AD in Office 365 has the Read DLP policy events including detected sensitive data permission.

To map operational categories

  1. In the Incident values for Content Type subscription area, configure the incident mappings.
