AIP Scanner Express (Fully Functional in 10 minutes!)


The Scenario:

You have been trying to install the AIP Scanner and have found that despite all the fancy screenshots and witty remarks I have throughout all of my posts, it takes a long time to configure the Azure AD App Registrations and often fails the first time around.  Well, those days are past us now.  I spent way too many hours developing a scripted method that allows for the automation of the creation of the Azure AD App Registrations and even a cloud account if you are not fond of syncing your service accounts to Azure.  I figured, if it was even painful for me to deploy the scanner...I needed to find a way to make it easier.  So the new solution will allow you to fully deploy the scanner in less than 10 minutes (I have done it in 4 actually), but that is assuming that you already have the AIP Client and Azure AD PowerShell Cmdlets installed, and a SQL Server ready, so there may be a little more time involved (but not too much).  The greatest part is that by using the PS Cmdlets for the Azure AD App Registrations, it removes the possibility of making a mistake when configuring them (something I must say I have done quite a few times). 🙂

The Solution:

As per my previous post, please check out the stunning conclusion to this blog post on our official AIP blog at https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/Azure-Information-Protection/Azure-Information-Protection-Scanner-Express-Installation/ba-p/265424 and bookmark https://aka.ms/AIPBlog for future exciting content from yours truly (I will of course keep writing my fun scenarios here, but the solutions will all be over in the grown-up blog).

Thanks!

Kevin
