      Description

      It would be nice to be able to have the node names set, but in Jenkins and in AWS. In Jenkins, the Instance name is used, which isn't terribly meaningful, but useful for cross-reference. In AWS, the name in left empty. Ideally, each AMI should have an "Instance Name" setting. In Jenkins, it is used for the node name, perhaps with the instance ID in perens after it so it will be unique. It would be cleaner to have a simple incrementing number in the name instead though, and then move the instance ID to the description field so we don't lose that potentially useful information. In AWS, the instance name should be set to the same value as it is in Jenkins.

            Log:
            Give Jenkins nodes useful names.

            EC2 slave nodes will now include their template name and EC2 instance
            identifiers in the node name used throughout the Jenkins UI.

            Addresses JENKINS-15078.

            Any way to get the Name tag set in aws so when I go to the aws console I can tell what agents are what? It seems you can add a tag in Jenkins after the node is up but I would like to have any instances created as part of a cloud profile to get a particular aws tag. Is this supported?

            Nevermind, I was able to find Tags in the Advanced section.
