Best way to manage list of servers through migration

For a number of our jobs, we write one job that then loops through a variable that contains all of our servers. This prevents us from having to hard code our servers into our jobs and also allows us to use that same variable for a number of our jobs. This makes it an easy, one stop change location should that list of servers ever change. However the problem we're running into now is that we have to manually change these values each time we migrate our jobs due to the fact that Automic doesn't have a method of changing values in static variables during migration.

Is there a better way we can manage these server list type of variables and also be able to have them changed during migration time? I'm not tied to the idea of them having to be in static variables, so if someone has a better solution I'm all ears.
