SplunkJS Getting collection name based on a lookup

Explorer

When you define a new kvstore based collection you use stanza with both new collection name and the base lookup for the collection. My question is - how to get the collection name based on the lookup, preferably from SplunkJS, but any hint would be nice.

For anyone curious about how to do that - the only way to achieve this seems to be using searchamanger to launch a query that reads the config file itself, detects every stanza and reads it's properties. Than it needs to create a two-dimensional array containing the collection name + lookup pairs.... If anyone finds a better solution, please let me know.
