options dlcreate=yes ;
Than use the new folders in namings as you like. They will be create. The challenge is in the retention policy, when and how to delete those.

By the way why not asking for xcmd usage? In a compliant environment you are running with your credentials to be auditable and traceable.
The only reason for not allowing is that you are seen as a dangerous irresponsible nitwit by the OS admins.

Or the OS Admins are conservative and put everyone in the 'nitwit' bucket for their convenience.
