> Currently you can provide a job name to {{execute}} in the execution 
> environment.  In an environment where many version of a job may be executing, 
> such as a development or test environment, identifying which running job is 
> of a specific version via the UI can be difficult unless the version is 
> embedded into the job name given the {{execute}}.  But the job name is uses 
> for other purposes, such as for namespacing metrics.  Thus, it is not ideal 
> to modify the job name, as that could require modifying metric dashboards and 
> monitors each time versions change.
> I propose a new method be added to the execution environment, 
> {{setDescription}}, that would allow a user to pass in an arbitrary 
> description that would be displayed in the dashboard, allowing users to 
> distinguish jobs.
