    FortiManager will delete unused firewall objects when a policy is pushed to a FortiGate, and I'm fine with that behavior.  I'm also noticing that unused devices that have been customized with a name are also being deleted.  Having these custom names is useful for reporting and discovery.  Is there a way to prevent FortiManager from deleting named objects other than adding them to a benign firewall policy?

    Thanks!
