In the Back Office Datacenters Overview interface, hosts are displayed with their IP.

In order to better distinguish hosts, it is possible to rename them by performing the following steps:

  1. Click on a host.
  2. Click on the "Rename" button in the host header.
  3. Enter a name.

    Leaving this field empty will keep the orginal name of the host.

The following webservice can also be used to rename a given host:

curl -H "Content-Type:application/json" -X PUT "http://<host>/bo-ws/datacenter/<datacenter>/host/<hostname>?afs:login=login://<login>:<password>@<authentication_authority>" --data '{"tag":"<new_name>"}'
