Update ExtraInfo1 Information using Rule Assignment to display in the Inflight document tracking

Currently, We can update sender/receiver/document type/reference number information using rule assignments to display in the Inflight document tracking. But we don't have any direct assignment in the rule to update ExtraInfo1 information. Currently, We are only using maps to update relevant ExtraInfo1 Xpath to update this information. For some of the flows, we have simple passthrough flows that were implemented using router rules ( without map ).

    With the thought to use these for simple pass thorugh flows, what type of info would we be expecting to populate with this? I am assuming that in this case, the info may be a bit limited so we are looking to get a better understanding of the value if this were to be implemented.

    If we are considering supporting this requirement, please support ExtraInfo2 and ExtraInfo3 as well. Please don't limit it to ExtraInfo1 only :)
