JSON SaveResults of backtest in LEAN

Is there a way to override the name of the File for SaveResults (https://www.quantconnect.com/lean/documentation/topic31381.html)  or invoke in the EndOfAlgorithm()?  

I'm trying do a few backtests and have the outputs be  like ParameterizedAlgorithm_customName.json instead of ParameterizedAlgorithm.json and then compare the results in a python jypter notebook and help would be much appreaciated.  thanks

Hi Andrew Chan ,

The filename the BacktestId set by JobQueue.NextJob#L160 with AlgorithmTypeName value, so you could hack Lean at this point to add a custom name.
However, why not just running Lean with a batch script that renames the result json file after a backtest is completed?

Thanks, may need to do that but thought there may be an more elegant solution, also if I want to run a bunch in parraell I don't want to mis-name one because may introduce a race condition
