Abraham Elmahrek commented on SQOOP-1965:
-----------------------------------------

[~vybs] I'm +1 on this improvement. We should be backwards compatible for the time being though.
So lookup can be by name or number.

> Currently, each connector, link or job instances are identified by an numbered id. (Automatically
allocated by increment?) 
> The id is used everywhere in the shell to refer to the specific object instance. For
example, when creating a Job, link id number are specified as from or to link.
> Using of numbered id is simple for the implementation but the numbered id is very difficult
to make reference and hard to remember.
> It is a common practice to give a meaningful name to each instance and thus can be referenced
with the name. This can dramatically increase the usability of the system.
