"Start Date" an instances in the cockpit

I do not see the “Start Date” an instances in the cockpit with history history off.
If you enable the history, the date appears.

That is correct. This information is only persisted in the history tables.

Will this be fixed?
Our history is disabled by default.

We do not have the intention to change this behavior, as this data is not relevant for execution.

edit: You can always choose to persist this in a custom location. For example, you can set a process variable with the current time whenever a process instance is started.
