Process Instance name has no default value ?

I have a pretty straight forward question. Is it considered as normal that process instance names are not persisted and not returned on an API call such Get a process instance OR Get a historic process instance, although a field NAME_ is present in ACT_HI_PROCINST  ?


I was expecting a process instance to be default named according the name declared in the BPMN definition.

<process id="simple-approval" name="My Process Instance Name" isExecutable="true">




By searching some similar problem i found this Process instance name is never persisted in table ACT_HI_PROCINST(for HistoricProcessInstance) · Issue #499 · Activiti/A… 


But from what I can see it has not been fixed, or am I missing something ?


Thanks !
