"My default" Policies

I've inherited the role of ePO administrator and i'm going through our policies and seeing if anything needs updating/cleaning up.
I'm going through the policies and i've noticed that all the 'custom' policies are named "My Default".

After a little reading it seems that this is the suggested name in some of the Mcafee tutorials... I'm a little surprised that all of the custom policies are named it so i thought i should confirm:

Q1: Can you please confirm that "My Default" is just a custom name given and not a 'special' name?

I'll be renaming these to slightly more descriptive names
Sorry for such a simple question - i'd much rather be 100% sure then sorry 🙂
Thanks for your thoughts and help.

RE: "My default" Policies

That should be fine 🙂
When ePO is first installed it creates a pair of default policies - the "McAfee default", which cannot be edited, and the "My Default", which can. I think My Default was just an arbitrary name chosen by the developers 🙂

If you're worried about breaking anything, instead of renaming them you can duplicate them and rename the duplicates, thereby preserving the originals.

Awesome, thanks a ton for confirming that... and for your quick response!
