Add Business Alias field in inflight for a process(Process ID)

Existing Document search in BPN has a required field "Business Alias". So along with DateTime Range ; one has to put BA to track any document flowing into the system. One has to search business alias from existing customers business alias. Also if a map has been deployed to multiple business alias ; seeing PROCESS ID ; we can not make out which BA version of map has been executed.

What is your industry? Other
How will this idea be used?

Add Business Alias field in inflight so that the same message(document) can be tracked easily in BPN system as its mandatory in BPN document search. It will save time to track document as well also there will be less errors when it comes to loading map specific to a BA.
