How to specify container name when running project using remote Node.js interpreter on docker ?

Hello,

I followed this tutorial https://blog.jetbrains.com/webstorm/2017/04/quick-tour-of-webstorm-and-docker/ to run Node.js on docker containers.

All works perfectly well, but I end up with a container named with a random string like /suspicious_lovelace which is funny, but it's random and the container name gets changed everytime I run my node.js code.

I wish to specify the container name of the docker container. So far, in the Run/Debug configurations I can specify docker container settings like port mappings, and I can also specify docker container environment variables, though not sure if that's the right way to specify the docker container.

Please help.

Thanks

This is still an issue in Intellij (I.e. you cannot name a remote debug container) when debugging remote nodejs containers, despite the PyCharm issues being marked as resolved... https://youtrack.jetbrains.com/issue/PY-23244 

Is this meant to be fixed across the entire suite?
