How to configure a default sensitivity label for a SharePoint document library

For an existing document library:

  1. In SharePoint, navigate to the document library > Settings > Library settings.

  2. From the Library settings flyout pane, select Default sensitivity labels, and then select a label from the drop-down box. For example:
    Sharepoint document library sensitivity

Note: Although you see the setting mentions support for PDF files, this file type isn't currently supported for this scenario.

If you're creating a new document library, you can configure the same Default sensitivity labels setting from the Create document library flyout pane.

Important: Using this feature requires one of the following licenses:

  • Microsoft Syntex - SharePoint Advanced Management

  • Microsoft 365 E5/A5/G5

  • Microsoft 365 E5/A5/G5/F5 Compliance

  • Microsoft 365 E5/F5 Information Protection and Governance

  • Office 365 E5/A5/G5
