Edit the name of assets and runbooks
To be able to edit name/description or asset/runbook
[Beth Cooper]: Updating this request to only include updating the names of runbook/assets because you can currently edit the description
You can currently edit the description on runbooks and assets. To do this for runbooks, go to the Configuration page.
On the names, would the ability to add a friendly name (that you can edit at any time) be sufficient or are you hoping to change the workflow name as well?

I am actually usually starting with a draft name, and then as the creation process continues to evolve the runbook, the actual purpose of it becomes clear. One it is, it sure would be great to be able to rename it.
I was just doing a review of our UserVoice tasks and am wondering what the action item is on this one. Can I close this out or is there something that we have done via Gallery or is there other functionality that you are looking for?
I see. We are currently working on a Gallery feature that will pull runbooks from a repository and clone them into your personal workspace which is essentially what you are describing here except that you want to use your own runbooks. We will look into this.

Finally figured out what I'm really after -- logical grouping of Runbooks. When Automation container contains multiple workbooks, they are all presented in a giant list w/o any relation to each other so you have to resort to prefexing runbook (workflow) names which violates the whole the advised practice of runbook naming conventions (verb-noun). If we could get a logical grouping, that would resolve the need in editing details. example:
This will also allow us to use same names for runbooks under different groups as they are representing similar logical construct, just within different context (example above: production environment DR runbooks vs testing environment DR runbooks).

Now that I'm thinking about it -- you're right. Label only/description is enough. But a lot of times you'd like to take what you have and use it as a base (including description/label). Perhaps a better option is to "clone" an existing runbook and use pre-populated values from original runbook?
