Why is order_number field not available for orders when using GraphQL?

Can anyone actually provide an answer as to why the order_number field is not available when using GraphQL?

I know I can get the name field, but that is not the same thing at all as the name field can have prefixes.

So, why isn't this rather important field available in the GraphQL API?

Hi @csam thanks for responding.

There is no number field for Orders.

{
  "errors": [
    {
      "message": "Field 'number' doesn't exist on type 'Order'",
      "locations": [
        {
          "line": 6,
          "column": 9
        }
      ],
      "path": [
        "query",
        "orders",
        "edges",
        "node",
        "number"
      ],
      "extensions": {
        "code": "undefinedField",
        "typeName": "Order",
        "fieldName": "number"
      }
    }
  ]
}
