Confused with Module 3 - Policy Management at

Hi, I am reading the onboarding process and reached module 3 at

I have already activated all defender plan trial and confused with the consepts of assigning the MDC policy asindicated with

az policy assignment create --name ‘MDCDefault’ –policy-set-definition 1f3afdf9-d0c9-4c3d-847f-89da613e70a8

So is this an old documentation or the fact of enabling defender will implements all policies in the MDC?

    Hi @Salam ELIAS

    This link you shared seems to be 3 years old as shown in below image therefore I would strongly advise against using it as the main source of reference ""

    Please refer to Microsoft official documentation to learn more about Microsoft Defender for Cloud?
