    Hi All,
     
    Following GET: <unity-server>/vmrest/users/<user_objid>/alternateextensions/<alternateextension_objid> results the extension and IdIndex... but the result does not include the "Display Name" of the alternate extension.
    Is there any way to get it somehow?
     
    Thanks in advance!

    CUPI (for admins) does not return the display name for whatever reason - CUPI for Users does.  Admins can see other items like location and partition assignment that users don't see, but users see display name and the "user defined" boolean flag.
    Tested it against my 8.6 and 9.0 servers - same behavior.  As far as I know it's always been this way - does seem a little odd that the admin is missing a couple properties that users can see.

    Thanks for the explanation!
    Hopefully I can "live without" this value.
