NetApp_Cluster_Snapshot module and dashboarding issue

I have a multi-node, multi SVM cluster that is being monitored with the latest LM NetApp_Cluster_Snapshot module. 

I am building a dashboard using the table widget that lists snapshots and their age for various volumes. Ideally, I’d use a wildcard in the instance field to list of all of the snapshots for a particular volume. However, this cluster has multiple SVMs with with identically named volumes. As these are customer volumes, I can’t just go in and rename them, so I’m at a bit of an impasse.

I’d like to add the SVM name so that I can use that as part of the glob when selecting an instance, but I’m not completely sure where these changes would need to be made. I made an attempt by changing a couple of lines in the active discovery script. While it looked like it worked, I ended up with no data being recorded for those resources. 

Has anyone had the same issue and managed to fix it?

Could you modify the discovery to put the svm name as a prefix on the instance name? Wouldn’t require changing the customer side, but would give each one a unique name in LM that you could glob on.
