M.App Chest - change WMS layer name

Hi folks,


I do have a short and simple question that hopefully anybody is able to answer.

Is there a way to change or to specify the WMS layer name of a published dataset? Right now the layer name seems to be identical to the dataset ID.

I know I can change the WMS layer title but unfortunately not the layer name.


The reason: the update of underlying data would be much easier: just upload the new dataset, then disable the WMS service for the old layer, enable the service for the new dataset using the same layer name. Done. No changes on the client side (GIS projects, client apps a.s.o).


Thanks for any hints.
