IWS : Info about host server job name assigned to webservice.

Hi, It would very useful to have somewhere in i.e webservice properties from information about host server job(s) assigned to specific webservice.

In developement/maintenace process for IWS webservice a host server job's joblog is usually very first place I check to figure out what is wrong. Currently I need to go through all prefiltered QZRCSRVS or QZDASOINIT jobs' joblogs and try to locate right one. It is doable but sometimes it is quite challanging especially on systems with many deployed webservices.

It would be extremely helpful and useful if somewhere in IWS web console i.e on deployed webservice list or in webservice properties I could find information which host service job is working for a webservice and which job is de facto calling program/sql .
