I wonder if anyone might shed light on why the JSS doesn't seem to be pulling username info for machines in a smart group search. Interesting to note that two admins of our instance do have their short names show, but all users do not. Peculiar.
To confirm: these are computers for which you have set (either via a script, API, or manually) an assigned username in the "User and Location" tab of the inventory record?
If so, do the usernames appear properly in that inventory tab (meaning, just a display issue in the report interface), or is the data actually disappearing from the computer record?
@nberanger You don't have to be connected to an LDAP server, although that is something you should do and it makes everything much easier. Here is where the setting to change the username is. It is statically assigned and doesn't populate automatically unless it is done by a script or during user-initiated enrollment.
@ebalen OK, got it. We certainly do not want to have to go through and statically assign a username for each computer, that seems rather tedious. Also, what happens when a computer gets redeployed to another user, would we then have to go back and change that user name in the JSS?
