Drone-runner-kube pipeline pod/container names

When running pipelines using drone-runner-kube, the worker pods and their component containers all have names like “drone-evu7e0c7nzibagov25f9”. This doesn’t convey a ton of information about which pipeline is running, which step, etc.

This is especially frustrating when:

  • trying to identify which pod corresponds to which pipeline when debugging, troubleshooting, etc.
  • monitoring cluster behavior and not being able to associate e.g. resource consumption profiles with a particular pipeline

Is there any way to change or influence these automatically generated names?
