Change device name in DNAC

Hi!

Is there any way to change the name of a network device in the DNAC inventory using gui or Api?

DNAC gets this info from the device config, so (for routers/switches) you can modify with a template containing "hostname $hostname", then resync the device in inventory to see the new name.

OK. 

So for Access-points i have to create a template for the EWLC then to change the names i assume?

I expect the logic to be the same for AP's, but instead of resyncing the AP (which I think is greyed out), you'll want to try resyncing the wlc.  Let us know if that works.
