Naming Devices

You can name devices in different ways with different priorities.

For audio devices, the device name is purely for organizational and display purposes inside of Polycom Device Management Service for Enterprise . This device name is never communicated back to the device.

For other devices, such as Polycom Studio, when the device connects to Polycom Device Management Service for Enterprise , the Polycom Device Management Service for Enterprise updates the device using the specified device name.

You can name devices using the following methods:
  • Specify the device name in a configuration profile
  • Add a device manually
  • Edit a device
  • Import a device via a CSV file

The device name specified in a configuration profile has the highest priority for device naming. If you specify different names for a device in both a CSV file and a configuration profile, the Device Monitor page displays the device name in the CSV file, but the service updates the device to the device name specified in the configuration profile. Editing the device name on the Device Monitor page or editing the device name in a CSV file have the same priority.
