Add-on builder set static host field


I am building an TA with Splunk add-on builder with scripted input.
I want to give a user the possibility to set static host field for each input.
I cannot add host field in data input parameters because I am getting an error:
"Internal name
The input parameter name 'host' is a reserved keyword"

How can I do that?

Hostname or IP is not in the event data, but I have an input parameter hostname which I could use.

Please use "hostname" or "myhost" instead of "host" which is a Splunk reserved parameter. Also please make sure the internal name you created is unique in UI
