    Hello, on Mac, there are 4 different way to get the "hostname" : HostName, LocalHostName, ComputerName (from
    scutil
    ) and the one for NetBIOS. The NetBIOS name is a dynamic name that can change regarding the connected network. In our company, when a user is connected to our VPN, that NetBIOS name change and use the local IP adress, eg the name is
    ip-192-168-1-17.eu-west-1.compute.internal
    . In FleetUI, the hostname displayed is that name. I guess it comes from the field
    hostname
    of table
    system_info
    but for my usage I wanted to use the field
    local_hostname
    or
    computer_name
    . Is there a way to change this ? Otherwise I will open a feature request 🙂

    There’s currently no way to use
    local_hostname
    or
    computer_name
    as the hostname in the Fleet UI. Please feel free to open an issue. Why would it be helpful to be able to use the
    local_hostname
    or
    computer_name
    field as the hostname in the Fleet UI?

    There is the login of the user in the hostname. And I often need to do a query on the computer of someone and this is quite annoying to first identify the hostname. Oh yes I forgot to say that we use Fleet/osquery as an inventory solution for our workstations fleet.
