#1542 closed enhancement (fixed)

Plug-ins should be able to suggest a better job name

Description

When creating a new job a default name is generated based on the name of the plug-in, eg. Run plugin: name-of-plugin. This is usually not very informative. It would be nice to let the plug-in suggest a name for the job. For example, the reporter importer could generate something like this: Import reporters from foo.txt.

This should not be too hard to implement. We can, for example, add Response.setSuggestedJobName() to the response object that the plug-in can call at the end of the configuration sequence.

If the plug-in doesn't suggest a name, the existing default should be used.

(In [5480]) References #1542: Plug-ins should be able to suggest a better job name

Fixed in the core API. Plug-ins can now call Response.setSuggestedJobName() to suggest a job name. The reporter importer was used as a test case. I will fix this in the remaining core plug-ins.
