Sequence number for event submited jobs

I have lately set up some event triggered jobs. It is a predefined job that will be submitted each time another job matching a certain name pattern is submitted.


The event action looks like this:

SBJ P1OPS003#DBO_U_BUYPASS_PRIZE_PAYOUT_CONTROL AS DBO_U_BUYPASS_PRIZE_CONTROL_SB INTO P1OPS001#DBA_DAY_NO_GS_02


This event will trigger multiple times within the daily plan. When submitted the job name will be DBO_U{long number}, i.e. DBO_U2323131011. When only 5 characters is kept from the actual name (DBO_U_BUYPASS_PRIZE_CONTROL_SB) it will be difficult for our operations to see what kind of job that is running. To me a shorter sequence number would have been much better. I.e.

DBO_U_BUYPASS_PRIZE_CONTROL_SB_1

DBO_U_BUYPASS_PRIZE_CONTROL_SB_2

DBO_U_BUYPASS_PRIZE_CONTROL_SB_99


I have not found a way to do this. I have tried to add some of the available variables in the event rule page to the job name but many of them does not give a legal job name or are too long or unfit for the purpose.


Maybe a sequence number could be a future enhancement to event submitted jobs?
