Summary : Information Management policies in SharePoint 2013,Retention policy,Auditing policy,Labeling policy,Barcode policy
This section describes policies that are Included in SharePoint Server 2013.
Retention – The Retention policy feature lets you define retention stages, with an action that happens at the end of each stage. For example, you could define a two-stage retention policy on all documents in a specific library that deletes all previous versions of the document one year after the document is created, and declares the document to be a record five years after the document is created.
The actions that can occur at the end of a stage include the following:
Moving the item to the Recycle Bin
Permanently deleting the item
Transferring the item to another location
Starting a workflow
Skipping to the next stage
Declaring the item to be a record
Deleting all previous drafts of the item
Deleting all previous versions of the item
Auditing – The Auditing policy feature logs events and operations that are performed on documents and list items. You can configure Auditing to log events such as the following:
Editing a document or item
Viewing a document or item
Checking a document in or out
Changing the permissions for a document or item
Deleting a document or item
Labeling (Depreciated in SharePoint 2013) – The Labeling policy feature specifies a label to associate with a type of document or list item. Labels are searchable text areas that SharePoint Server 2013 generates based on properties and formatting that you specify. For example, in a law firm, a document related to a legal matter could include a label that contains the clients’ names, the case number, and the attorney assigned to the matter. Labels are especially useful in printed versions of documents as a way to display document properties in printed copy.
Barcode – The Barcode policy feature enables you to track physical copies of a document by creating a unique identifier value for a document and inserting a bar code image of that value in the document. By default, bar codes are compliant with the common Code 39 standard (ANSI/AIM BC1-1995, Code 39), and you can plug in other bar code providers by using the policies object model.
