Customise filename of CSV/XLS exports from Data Explorer

When exporting data from the Data Explorer, using “Download as CSV/Excel”, the downloaded zip file contains the exported files, which are named according to the managed object ID of the device, e.g. 215201.csv.

It would be useful to be able to customise this filename so that it contains a more human-readable identifier, such as the name of the device or, preferably, the name of the parent group. Without this extra metadata, the files are not immediately easy to correlate with the device.

    Hi Martin, thanks a lot for your feedback.

    We agree that we should have better filename for the exports from Data Explorer, I would explore a bit to understand what else should be part of file name (like date /time range, device name etc.) and internally discuss if we can improvise on it with future releases and get back to you once we have a plan.
