Hi Jitu,

I'm sorry for the miscommunication.  What I meant is that without any
modifications, you can add the job's name as metadata for all documents
indexed with the job.

If you need to index hard-wired metadata for every job run, you will need
to modify  The IJobDescription object is readily
available there, but you will also need to write a SQL query to obtain the
job's start time.
