    Hello @Nitin Arora ,

    Apologies for the delay in response.

    I understand that you would like to know if it is possible to get the individual Device name rather than the VPN client certificate name on the Azure Point-to-site VPN session management page.

    I discussed this requirement with the Azure VPN Product Group team and below is their response:

    When you set P2S session locally, the VPN username field displays whatever info we have in the cert that was used to authenticate.

    There are 2 types of VPN tunnels - Device tunnel and User tunnel.

    If you want the device name to be displayed in the VPN username, you will need to create a Device tunnel.

    You can find the instructions to do that in the below doc:

    https://learn.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/vpn-gateway/vpn-gateway-howto-always-on-device-tunnel

    NOTE: The device tunnel is only supported for IkeV2 protocol.

    Kindly let us know if the above helps or you need further assistance on this issue.
