Set Device Name with Inventory Preload

New Contributor III

Hi Jamfs,

Using Inventory Pre-load for our AppleTV enrollment and it's working great. But hoping there is a way to re-name the AppleTV at enrollment time so when it enrolls in Carousel is has better descriptive name other than AppleTV. If I could name the device in the Preload it would resolve this issue for me. Issue is I don't see an option in the Pre-load template to name the device. Not being able to re-name the AppleTVs causes confusion not know who enrolled the devices.

Within the prestage, there should be a section called Mobile Device Names.
In there, you get a number of options Default Names, List of Names, Serial Numbers, and Single Name.

If all your devices are being named AppleTV it sounds like the setting is on Default Names.

Thanks for the reply but in my case I'm looking for something for specific for each device. In the pre-stage that seems to be more for standard naming convention for all devices.

Any news on this case?


I've got the same problem. It seems only way is to update the devices after enrollment with MUT. It isn't very pratical.

Yes that is currently the only way
