To create an app configuration policy ,I have tried both $serial number$ and %serial number% but none works. What is the correct wildcard please

Thanks

App configuration policy involving a serial number? Can you provide more details on what you are trying to configure?
Endpoint.microsoft.com>Apps>App Configuration Policy>
On the Basics Section: Fill name and description; On Platform select: Android Enterprise
What Profile Type was choosen? (All Profile Types / Fully Managed… / Personally-Owned…)
What is the Targeted app?
On the Settings Section: On Configuration settings format select: Use Configuration designer
Click on +ADD and select: Device´s serial number

Will like to deploy many devices with the identifier as serial number. Will be horrible to enter individual serial numbers. Most MDMs have that functionality. Thanks
And what is the name of the targeted app? Each supports different set of configuration keys.
That should not matter, We are talking about the serial number of a device. Pick any app. For example, some MDM/EMM platforms might use the string $serialnumber$ in a script or in a Managed Config template and then substitute the actual value of the serial number for the device during deployment. Soti MobiControl for example is %SERIALNUM%.
Does Intune has a wildcard for serial number please?
Thanks
It does matter and I am not aware of any configuration key that supports device’s serial number. Intune id, even azure id but not Device serial number for sure. Since you are not willing to provide the details I asked for, then maybe wait for someone else to help you with your query. Good luck.

I really appreciate your help and I thought I already provided you the details. at 08:46 am today. Will send it again. Below are the steps

If you follow those steps, you are able to select Token, Serial Number and IMEI as string types under the configuration key. What you mentioned ie Intune ID etc etc are Variable types that can be added under the configuration key. I am able to deploy a device by entering its own serial number under the configuration key by selecting the Serial Number. My problem is , I do not want to do that for every devices, I just need a valid willdcard that pick the serial numbers after deployment. Unfortunately I cannot attach image. Hope this help. It seems Intune does not have the wildcard capability at this moment which is very worrying.
Not a good day lol, mistakenly ticked the wrong box as best response. Can this be unticked?
{{SerialNumber}} ?
@DRich22,
Did not work. Seems Intune does not support wildcards with value strings type. If Microsoft could add Serial number as Variable type that should solve the problem. At the moment they have just limited options like IMEI, User Id, Account Id.
Another option will be to run a script but that is also a limitation at the moment as well when it comes to Android devices......... Have contacted Microsoft Support and looking forward talking to their Product Manager.
Thanks
