File rename and archiving in JDE 9.0


I have a requirement from client where they want BI output to be renamed and stored in a location. This feature is available in latest jde version but not in 9.0

I was thinking of following below steps to achieve it.

1. Modify jde.ini and define archive folder in the ini file.
2. From Jde get the job number and try to access the file stored in the folder
3. Rename the file using bsfn.

Can someone please let me know if there is a better option available for this requirement.Also please let me know if there is any bsfn available for get bi job number.

To partially answer the query: if you call the report from a driver report (using Launch UBE bsfn), you can get the job number.
