Enable more dynamic tags in LSF resource connector

Currently in Resource connector only one dynamic tag called "RC_ACCOUNT" is enabled but we would like to have more such dynamic tags which can be used along with bsub command.
Example;Current tag takes only " -P project_name" as a dynamic tag . But we would like to have tags for -q etc so it will help to capture the resource usage in queue level.

Also it would have been great if get an option to include the key value pair directly in bsub while job submission.

    Sumanth, we're not quite clear on your use case.

    The instances are created based on resource demands, then work is dispatched to them. So there is no a guaranteed 1:1 mapping between a specific job and a specific instance.
    You can pass a list of job specific env vars to the job on the bsub command line
