Subject Re: Custom DAG name?

Sounds like an interesting application of airflow which may not be the best
use-case for it.

How are you triggering these dag runs? airflow trigger_dag? If so, you can
find the logs for your specific RUN_ID in the ui without grepping through
all logs first, but with hundreds of dag runs, it will still take a bit of
searching. If the unique ID is something known internally to your
application, then it's not something that Airflow knows about, so grep is
your only recourse.
