I have performed a device Rename action in Endpoint manager through its MS Graph Rename API and got success response but the device name is still unchanged.

 

API : https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/graph/api/intune-devices-manageddevice-setdevicename?view=graph-res...

 

Timeline:

  1. Previous Device name : MACHINE-W10-10
  2. Attempted to rename Device to MACHINE-W10-11
  3. Endpoint manager said success
  4. Waited more than 24 hours but name is still unchanged

Am I missing something or is this an issue?


I have raised the same question in Stackoverflow too

The last time I tried a rename (couple of weeks ago) it would not show until after an actual reboot. Did you try this yet just to rule it out?
