A query of the device-group devices records via REST returned the full-path of the device rather than just the name of the device minus the folder path.


REST interfaces that try to compare the name retrieved via this query with the name of a device queried from the device record, get an invalid mismatch.


This always occurs when querying the device-group devices records via REST.


Update the consumers of this data to use the full-path field instead of the name field.

Fix Information

The configuration database has been updated so that the name field is correctly populated without the parent folder being pre-pended to it.
