Downloading an Artifact from the Mender server obfuscates file names

      Description

      When you use the "Download" button in the Mender UI to download an Artifact, it will download files with names such as:

      040d93bb-ab9b-43ce-9a2e-ea4d39ac28e5
      0f41704a-6651-457e-a5a4-dc7fd7f8e6a9
      040d93bb-ab9b-43ce-9a2e-ea4d39ac28e5
      0f41704a-6651-457e-a5a4-dc7fd7f8e6a9
      

      I see a couple of problems with this:

      • It is very hard to find the file after it has been downloaded, e.g I downloaded four Artifacts and now I do not know which is which.
      • The files do not have a ".mender" extensions.

      What I was trying to do is to download an Artifact from one server to upload to another, but trying to upload the files I have downloaded trigger the "Create Artifact" wizard. So now I must rename the Artifacts manually to at least have a ".mender" extension to not trigger the wizard.

      And again as the names are obfuscated they are very hard to work with.
