Obtain the 
Azure
 IP authentication information for the 
Docs
 service

The 
Docs
 service authenticates to 
Azure
-IP using a fixed symmetric key and is associated with a super user service principal and a BPOS tenant ID that are generated using 
Windows PowerShell
. The values are used to configure the 
BEMS
 dashboard. Authenticating to 
Azure
-IP allows the 
Docs
 service to decrypt protected documents and determine the rights a user has on a document.
