Allow nicknames for firewalls again
You used to be able to rename firewalls in Sophos Central. That seems to have disappeared. Please return this feature. Trying to identify a firewall by IP address or serial is silly. We have DNS for a reason: people don't remember IP addresses.
I would like to ask to re-enable this feature again asap. Some of our new firewalls have been renamed after the initial install to a meaningfull names for us. When further rolling out the next new bunch of firewalls I cannot rename them anymore now!!! I am in a catch22 situation because of this ;-(

We had all our firewalls renamed to the site they were installed at, we recently installed some firewalls and cant rename them, soon we will have 4 more installed and no way to properly identify which one is which. This needs to come back, if nothing else, for my own sanity, let alone my colleagues who will just ask me which one they need to configure.
I agree... I can see for a company that has one firewall device, no issue... But what about businesses with multiple devices, or partners that manage multiple clients... Seems a bit daft... Maybe there was a fault created by the nicknames? I hope they figure it out and put it back how it was...
Absolutely. Why this was removed is beyond me...
I don't know which firewall GGVJS877954SS is.
Seems like a strange feature to remove. I assume it was inadvertently removed, but still.
