Have device source name not ip address in logs and reports


Just a quick query regarding the logging to forticloud.

Is it possible to have the logs and reports specify the source by the device name and not the IP in forticloud.


On the attached fortiview, I have (as it's a small network) all the devices listed with an Alias in the Device inventory and all devices names are listed when viewed locally on the fortiview (see attached).


But when shown in Forticlould only the source IP address is shown and in all the generated reports it is just the IP address shown for reference.


Having a device name shown in the reports would make it a lot more user friendly for our customers.

I have the same query, this is very annoying when you have dozens of smart devices which need to be known by name if the reports are to make any sense.
