Custom Sensitive type authoring is a new Office 365 feature, which enables you to create custom sensitive types right from the Security & Compliance Center.
Office 365 includes many sensitive information types that are ready for you to use. These built-in types can help identify and protect credit card numbers, bank account numbers, passport numbers, and more.
But if you need to identify and protect a different type of sensitive information – for example, an employee ID that uses a format specific to your organization – you can create a custom sensitive information type. Before this change, you could create a custom sensitive type only using an XML rule package.
This feature allows you to create a custom sensitive type right from the Security and Compliance Center. It also lets you test and fine tune the sensitive type as a part of the creation experience.
