The create menu which i am referring here is OOTB and that too they are all populated from D_StartingFlows data page.
Usually the name should get changed when we update the starting flow label.. But in my case its not updating
Are you seeing correct results when you run the data page manually from the actions tab of the data page.
No.. I have updated the process to My Preferences but yet the data page returns Customer Profile.
Which prpc version are you using? I tried it in prpc 716 by updating the short description of a flow and it is not updating the create menu.

Starting flows are all stored in a class named Data-Admin-StartingFlows. I guess the class instances of data-admin-startingflows are not being updated when you update the short description of the flow name. You can try a creating a small activity with two steps as shown below just to test if the instances in the data-admin-startingflows is correct or not.
When does an instance for Data-Admin-StartingFlows starting flow gets created? is it workpool specific(does it capture the list of all starting flows in a work pool)? if yes, where does the link between starting flow, application and workpool lie?

The Create Menu is populated from the Starting Flows of the Case Types. Each Case Type will have the pyStartCase and the D_StartingFlows Data Page is loaded with these details. So if you update the Short Desc in pyStartCase from the corresponding class and reload the DataPage, the values should be reflected.
D_StartingFlows is actually populated this way. All the CaseTypes from the application rule are fetched. These case types are in turn opened to fetch the starting flows defined. Pega generates the starting flows with names pyStartCase. If you define additional start flows by editing the case type manually. Then details of all the starting flows are fetched and populated. So Check the Case Type rule and look for the starting flows defined in the corresponding class. Then you should be able to edit the label of the starting flow.
Actually we are using a starting flow with name CustomerProfile which already has the label as "My Preferences"..
It is ideally supposed to display My Preferences in create menu. But not sure why its not picking it up
I'm on 7.2 version
What values are populated in the D_StartingFlows data page?
The data page always returns the Customer Profile as the pyLabel instead of My Preferences.

I have not tried creating a field value for customer profile yet. but will try..
I have recently noticed that its working for a specific set of users.. for ex it does not work for me. but for another operator its displaying as "My Preferences" instead of "Customer Profile"
The pyLabel change you recommended worked perfectly. Thanks.
This is the first time i created a field value for the values to start flows. I'm still confused as to why the My Preferences was missing in create menu
