Hi! In Prefect 2.0, when creating a flow_run for a deployment using API's
prefect.client.create_flow_run_from_deployment()
is it possible to set the name for the flow_run? I know that there is such an option when calling
create_flow_run(name="My flow run name")
that takes as input a flow_model, what about when creating a run from a deployment though?

In theory, it is possible but we currently don't expose any functionality to do that. Let me open an issue to check if we can expose that @Marvin open "Allow setting custom flow run name when creating a flow run from a deployment"

I noticed in the source code that
prefect.client.create_flow_run_from_deployment()
uses
DeploymentFlowRunCreate
which is a subclass of
FlowRun
that has the 'name' attribute, so indeed exposing this functionality is possible. Thank you Anna😊
