Change MateConnector Name in FS

Max_KlugeMax_Kluge Member Posts: 4
Hello Everyone

I created a FS that can set multiple MateConnectors to a body. The only problem for me right now is: the Mate connectors created are named "Mate connector1", "Mate connector2" and so on. 
Is there a possibility to name them after the variables in the positions i put them to?

I have height and angle so I would like to name the connector:    height ~ "mm - " ~ angle ~"°"
I tried setProperty but thats not working. Even renaming connectors by hand is not possible. 

Following a short look into how the connectors are created:

 for (var i, konnektor in definition.konnektor)
            const origin = vector(dataDurchmesser / 2 + konnektor.versatz, 0 * mm, konnektor.isFlipped ? definition.hoehe - konnektor.abstand : konnektor.abstand);

            opMateConnector(context, id + "mateConnector" + i, {
                        "coordSystem" : rotationAround(line(WORLD_ORIGIN, Z_DIRECTION), konnektor.winkel) * coordSystem(origin, Y_DIRECTION, X_DIRECTION),
                        "owner" : part
