LMS 3.2 showing IP instead of SYSNAME in emails

Unanswered Question

I would like LMS to send event emails containing sysname instead of IP address of devices. Where can I change that?

Also I would like to see devices listed as sysnames and not IPs. (Please check below 2 screenshot I am sending!)

I would like to have an option like in topology services where you can select VIEW - DISPLAY LABELS for devices.

Thank you for your answer!

unfortunately there is no option to make the sysname to be the display name, you can achive this only by name resolution...

the bestwould be to enable name resolution for the devices, i.e. add your devices to DNS or maintain a hosts file on your server.
If you have done this be sure to have the following setting for discovery marked:
Update DCR Display Name

With DFM it is a little bit different, - you have to delete them from DFM and rediscover all devices

I think it should also be possible to enter a custom display name through CS > Device and Credentials > Device Management but DFM would not take account of this setting.
