Hi sir

I want to show sysname in my dashboard (Widget is alerts)

When I modified config.php using

$config[‘force_ip_to_sysname’] = true;
$config[‘force_hostname_to_sysname’] = true;

That is not working.

I using command

“lnms config:set force_ip_to_sysname false”
This is not a valid setting. Please check your input

In old version(1.52


It is working and the variable is showing in global setting

But In version 22

“force_ip_to_sysname” and 'force_hostname_to_sysname is disappear.

Is any thing method that modify the code or config solving it ??

Many Thanks!!~~ :sob:

I find the solution!

The “Global Setting” → “Web UI” → “Device Setting”

The Default device display name template change “sysName”.

Devices are prefer “sysName” and dashboard that relation about it also changes sysName.
