Converting a shared policy to a non-shared policy

You can copy the content of a shared policy and create a non-shared policy from that content. A copy enables you to change the content of a shared policy in one location and not in all other locations. The copy overrides the existing shared policy.
When you finish the conversion, the converted policy with its new name appears under
Location-specific Policies and Settings
. However, the non-shared policy does not appear in the
Policies
page for the policy type unless you copy it from the
Clients
page >
Policies
tab to the
Policies
page.
