Hi Folks - I have a flow that uses the Prefect provided
RenameFlowRun
. Would it be expected that in a downstream task if I call
prefect.context.get("flow_run_name")
the new/updated name is returned?

Yes because it makes an API call to change the name

That was my assumption, but the logs are showing the auto generated flow run name instead of the new name.

Ohh my bad that makes sense because context is already generated and immutable for the most part

Is there a way to easily get the updated name?
I was thinking
client.get_flow_run_info

I haven’t used that. I was thinking the FlowRunView. Instantiate from a flow_run_id, and then try pulling the
name
attribute
