os platform and serial no. as device name

expand collapsive

We use devices with different platforms for our needs and now my portal is filled with random names… trust me it is not at all easy to differentiate. i will be better off with the os platform and serial no. as the name. Can I implement this on all my devices at once

    Hey @zariah
    Thank you for reaching out to us.

    Hexnode UEM allows you to set a friendly name for devices through the Set Friendly Name action. This remote action supports the use of wildcards, which enables bulk devices to be renamed with ease. To change the device name, head over to Manage > Devices > select the required devices > Actions > Set Friendly Name.

    In the Device Name field, enter %osname% – %serialnumber% to act as wildcards and uncheck the Append Number checkbox. It replaces the device name with the combination of OS platform and the serial number of the device.

    This action changes the device name on the portal and the Hexnode app. The name of the device under device settings is unaffected.


    Hope this clears your query.
