With the default MacOS log in screen, you can click on the clock and see the ComputerName. Is there a similar function in Jamf Connect?

You can use try using

"LoginWindowMessage " on com.jamf.connect.login .

A custom message to display in the lower-center of the login window.

that only seems to work with straight text, no variables. I tried <ComputerName>, <$ComputerName> and $ComputerName to no effect.

If you are using a Jamf Configuration profile you should be able to use the standard Jamf varaibles. Try $COMPUTERNAME in the profile setting. 

 

However, a word of caution. This is a not a dynamic variable. The variable is populated by Jamf when the profile is pushed to the computers. So, if you are pushing your Jamf Connect Login profile in a prestage or early in the deployment process and then change your computer name later, the profile will still reflect the old computer name.

$COMPUTERNAME just gives us $COMPUTERNAME on the login screen.
