RAF and Bundle ID macro

Is there a way to create custom macros to be passed back?  The most used for us is "bundle id".  Since we can't pass it back from RAF we have to create separate VAST tags for each channel.

Not at the moment. But this is falling on a sympathetic ear -
Can you please explain in more detail your case - what is this "bundle id"?
Where do you want to insert it, in beacons or?

Bundle id is the identifier for a specific channel that is sent to VAST ad SSP/DSP's.  It's self assigned.  Typical format is com.roku.app

Not exactly what you asked for, but you can use ROKU_ADS_APP_ID that contains the Roku app#.
This can be used for a singe ad tag for all of your apps on Roku.

"Bundle ID" is Apple concept. Analogous on Android is "package" or "application ID".
On Roku, you have channel IDs, which for published apps are numbers - for example it's 12 for Netflix.

You can see that in the Channel Store URL
https://channelstore.roku.com/details/12/netflix
or in the developer portal URL when editing the app details.
