Placeholder info for AppleTV in Profile Manager OS X Server
While importing a placeholder for some iPads into Profile Manager I was peeking through profilemanager.log, when I found this gem.
[351] [2014/05/22 16:17:21.942] I: Imported placeholder device "MH-Gary Ho_iPad Mini45", SerialNumber=F7NMXXXXXX84, IMEI=, MEID=, UDID=, DeviceID=, AirplayPassword=
What I did next was add a new column AirplayPassword= to the placeholder CSV file and put a password in. I then uploaded the placeholder for an AppleTV and it added the Airplay password to my AppleTV Device in ProfileManager.

Just yesterday I added 20 AppleTVs to Profile Manager, I could have saved a few steps with this hint.

[crarko adds: If you don't know about Apple Profile Manager for OS X Server here is a description of it's capabilities. Perhaps they've noticed penetration of AppleTV's into business and college conference rooms. I've been seeing more of them used basically as portable projectors.]
