      Description

      Currently it is difficult to correlate which device you are logged in to with the Mender server / UI. Right now it is not possible to filter on device identity attributes (only inventory) in the server, otherwise running mender-device-identity on the device would help.

      However there are also potentially multiple device identity attributes available and searching for those might be a bit of effort. The server keeps a "Device ID" string, which is easy to copy and paste around and we can build something on top of that.

      Acceptance criteria

      • mender show-device-id outputs the server-generated device ID
      • if the device has not been accepted with a server yet, there is a message explaining this
      • documentation updates to explain how to correlate device from console and server/UI
