Where to put custom Asset Categories?

Hi community,

I'd like to add our locations as Asset Categories and am wondering what would be the better alternative?

  1. Under the Path /All Asset Categories/Site Asset Categories/Location/Europe/... (which belongs to pre configured ArcSight-Content)
  2. Under my own path /All Asset Categories/MyCats/Site Asset Categories/Location/Europe/...

So basically the question is: Is it ok to extend ArcSight provided Asset Categories? Or should one always use a custom self-created path?

Thanks in advance,

Re: Where to put custom Asset Categories?

I personally prefer to put them all under a custom group - this way I know what categories are in use and which ones aren't.  If it's categories that are already in ArcSight, I just copy them over and use the copies.
