Display_name in the /preauth response


#1

There is an element “display_name” in the /preauth response. Is there any convention duo follows to send a display_name in the response? Can it ever be null or empty?


#2

The display_name is optional and is free text entered by the Duo admin or end user.


#3

I am talking about display_name - not device name.


#4

So am I, I just typed the wrong thing! Oops.


#5

I do not find any option to set a display name. I do see an option to setup a device name. When i test the auth api, I find that the display name is in this format:
<device_type> (XXX-XXX-1234)
iOS (***-***-1234)

Is that something set by the admin optionally or it is built in the rest service itself?


#6

In the UI it is the “Device Name”.


#7

Can it be null by any chance?


#8

@DuoKristina Can the field display_name be null by any means?
