Set up device lookup values

Hexnode lets you define device attributes such as Department name, Asset tag and Device notes for each device. You can also pass these values as wildcards. Wildcard stands for ‘wild character’ which refers to a symbol used for replacing or representing one or more characters.

Wildcard Substitution
%department% Displays the department name associated with the device.
%assettag% The unique identification number or code associated with the device.
%devicenotes% Any custom note that you have defined for the device.

While configuring web apps, for specific websites, device information can be passed along with the URL on to Android and iOS devices with the help of wildcards.
