I was in your boat about 3 months ago.
All I can say is WYSE suppor is about worthless but open a case with them anyways.
Their solution for my problem was reinstall and start over.

I can tell yo one thing that might be a cause.  The firmware version on the devices may not be supported by your version of WDM and may need upgrading prior to discovery.  I added manually as well and it only caused more problems.  You also need to add pointers in DNS for the WDM server.  RTM carefully as there are a lot of good tips in it through the installation I overlooked my first try.

the issue is with the device naming convention... it cannot have '-' or '_'
changing that has resolved the issue.

There has been a hotfix released to solve the issue with naming convention, i have installed it and im now back to WDM not picking up the devices.  ahhhhh... any ideas how to roll it back,

What Is Threat Intelligence?

Threat intelligence is often discussed, but rarely understood. Starting with a precise definition, along with clear business goals, is essential.
