Hi. Is it possible in Prefect 2 to name the task based on input parameters? https://docs-v1.prefect.io/core/idioms/task-run-names.html

Hi Vadym, here is an article that may be helpful for your use case
You can rename a task using
with_options
and pass in the parameters you would like displayed in the name

@terrence I saw several people asked about this.
with_options
is only available in API. I wonder if we can add this under Concepts/Tasks? I can work on adding it

Is it possible to make this work with
task.map
?
Copy code
@task
def say_hello(name: str) -> None:
    print(name)
This works
Copy code
names = ["a", "b"]
for name in names:
    say_hello.with_options(name=f"say {name}"}
Is it possible to make it work with
Copy code
names = ["a", "b"]
say_hello.map(names)
Bumping this up

We don’t support changing options on mapped tasks yet, we’re thinking about a nice way to expose this though.
