This sounds great. However, it seems that this resource now needs to be requested
for every job in every queue... correct?

What I would like is that only the 2 queues which have a licensed
system attached to them require a specific resource to be requested.

A workaround would probably be to let this forced resource have a default
value for all jobs? Is there a somewhat cleaner solution?

greetings and thanks so far,
