Identify means to pass some job related information to the glideins requested
HEPCloud acts as a site aka factory entry point(s). HEPCloud will be providing resources for the jobs to run and expand the infrastructure to cloud if required. However, since HEPCloud is a site, it does not see jobs but instead sees glideins that enters the facility. For HEPCloud to make decision and to dynamically expand its resource base to Cloud is required, it needs to know some information about the jobs. At present there is no such mechanism.
In a crude sense, today this can be accomplished by using GlideinSecurityClass in the glidein jobs classad.
We need a way to pass more custom information so it lands up in the glidein jobs classad

Marco and I have been talking about addressing this through #7186. If there are no incompatibility issues, we should be able to release this as part of v3.2.x series and also make it available in v3.3.x series
