Device name device policy

You can set the names on supervised iOS and macOS devices so that you can easily identify the devices. You can use macros, text, or a combination of both to define the device’s name. For example, to set the device name as the serial number of the device, you would use ${device.serialnumber}. To set the device name as a combination of the user’s name and your domain, you would use ${user.username} For more information about macros, see Macros in XenMobile.

To add or configure this policy, go to Configure > Device Policies. For more information, see Device policies.
