Need an isbn number to preview KDP manuscript but don't want to keep it permanently.

I am at the point in Amazon KDP where I am wanting to see a preview of my novel.  I do not have an ISBN number yet because I am still only wanting to preview and not publish.  Amazon asks if I want a free ISBN number from them or if I should provide my own.  If I choose to have Amazon provide the ISBN, am I stuck with it or can I back out and later add my own?  The reason for this is I cannot upload a manuscript to preview without a valid ISBN number.
