Here are 3 ways:

1) subscribe to the BACKGROUND_JOB event and find the one with the same
    then the body of that message is the output from your backgrounded FSAPI
call which in the case
    of an originate will contain the uuid of the actual channel.

2) You can do as suggested and add {myvar=myval} prefix to the dialstring
and look for
    myvar in the channel_originate event.

3) Finally you can choose the uuid in advance providing it's actually unique


    You can use your own code to generate uuid (make sure they are unique)
    ask the core to give you a new uuid with the create_uuid FSAPI call.
