Hi,

I'm using the Deadline scheduler successfully, so this is more of an enhancement request.

While setting the Job name on Deadline is easy, the granularity isn't ideal, it would be helpful to see which TOP node/work item was associated with each task. Especially since I need to use multiple Deadline scheduler TOP nodes to be able to use "groups" in the Deadline sense.

Is it possible to add the TOP node to Extra Info 1 and the Work Item to Extra Info 2 for the Deadline Tasks? I haven't attempted to dig into the PDGDeadline plugin at all, but my guess (wild guess) is that's where I'd look to add that?

Cheers,

Peter B

Ya, we could do that. We could probably expose them all as extra job parms.
Are you skipping Extra Info 0 intentionally ?

No, not at all, I forget it started at zero when I was writing this

Probably good to have it configurable though just because some shops might already use some of those fields.

It's not super urgent but definitely would be helpful.

Cheers,
