    I believe this is a limitation of the 7940/60 devices.  As these devices have long since been End of Life'ed, you will need to explore workarounds, e.g. adding a service URL parameter to specify the device name, and populating it per device.

    We have an IP Phone service that uses the #DEVICENAME# feature in an URL off a softkey, e.g. https://blah.blah.com/service/rest/v1/#DEVICENAME#.
    This works on 7962s and above, i.e. https://blah.blah.com/service/rest/v1/SEP000011112222, but on 7960/7940s it sends the #DEVICENAME# code but not the actuall phone device name, i.e. https://blah.blah.com/service/rest/v1/#DEVICENAME#.
    Is this a limitation of the older phones? Or we programming something wrong?
