When deploying Symantec Endpoint cloud protection via GP or any automatic deployment it would be useful if there was a way to get the "Computer Alias" field to automatically populate with the name of the currently logged on user rather than it simply filling with the computer name. This would make it far easier to identify machines.

Alternatively if it was possible to export the list of machines from the Symantec cloud console in CSV format, update the Computer Alias Fied in Excel and then import the updated CSV file back into the Symantec cloud console to update the Computer Alias field.

Or allow integtration with AD so you could sync the Computer Alias field with a designated field in AD.
