Introducing this guide
This guide describes the classification feature that first appeared in Enterprise Vault 12. This feature uses the File Classification Infrastructure (FCI) that is built into recent Windows Server editions to assign classification values to all new and existing archived content. After the classification feature has assigned the required values to items, users of applications such as Enterprise Vault Search, Compliance Accelerator, and Discovery Accelerator can use them to filter the items when they conduct searches and reviews.
The classification feature can also control the retention of items by applying specific retention categories to them. When users manually delete items or Enterprise Vault automatically expires them, the items can be reclassified to ensure that they are still safe to delete.
