By default, the Device Name column in the table displays the device's Computer Name using:
scutil --get ComputerName
If you setup a Device Name Changed alert in Addigy Monitoring, you may get this alert triggered for a few reasons.
- The user changed the device name themselves
- The device does not have a hostname or computer name set, the device name changed automatically or via a network utility.
This is more noticeable on DEP/ADE (Device Enrollment Program / Automated Device Enrollment) Enrolled devices or newer devices where the hostname or computer name may not be explicitly set.
If you require additional assistance in understanding the device name changes, please create a ticket at email@example.com.
