Most of the PCs have generic PC Name. So my goal is to rename from Intune Portal to make it easier to identify.

I have renamed the devices from Intune> Devices> All Devices> Select Device > Properties > Rename

The device is renamed in PC. I can see the completed status message as well.

But in the Intune portal, changes are not reflected. I have waited a couple of days, I have force synced, but still getting the old name.

Is there any way to update device names?

    @Gaurav Mani Maharjan,Thanks for posting in Q&A.

    From your description, I know that you are looking forward a way to update device names.

    Based on my testing, you can refer the method @JM mentioned, and it will take some time to change device name in Intune portal.

    Thanks for your kind understanding.

    Also, make sure you are following the naming convention guidelines while renaming a device.

    • 15 characters or less
    • Letters (a-z, A-Z), numbers (0-9), and hyphens. Names must not contain only numbers.
    • No spaces or special characters.
