Adding Collector based on fixed input collectorID via RPC call

I want to add collector via rpc call with my provided collectorID input. Currently I am not able to do that as collectorID is auto generating and there is no option to provide collectorid as input to rpc/addAgent?

I think it would be good to have that feature so that we can organise collectors based on ID#s, environments...etc., ( particularly when we try to add collectors through rpc calls and automate the process..)

Please help on this. Thank you.

    All resource Ids are automatically set in LogicMonitor, because Ids need to be unique.  Automatically setting them is the simplest & safest way to enforce uniqueness.  We do, however, allow you to set Collector description.  You mentioned wanting to set Collector Id to better facilitate Collector organization - are you using Collector Groups?  Collector groups should enable Collector organization, and although our RPC API doesn't allow you to set/update Collector Groups for your Collectors, this functionality will be included in our upcoming REST API.  Our REST API for Collectors & Collector Groups is expected to be published in v81.
