i dont know anything about that script but presumably it uses one of
the parameters that are passed in.
try putting a call to "env" in the script to see what variables are set for you

the names of the scripts (the RAs) or the resources? i think you mean
the later but wrote the former.

the id of the resource is passed in, just not the id of the operation.

you dont need groups
no-one needs groups
they are a syntactic shortcut and don't achieve anything that cant be
done with some colocation and ordering constraints

[apart from the fact that this seems like a recipe for disaster to me]
this is therefor how you tell them apart - write a status operation
that looks at some subset of the data to figure out which one its
