Display attributes under general information section for OpenIGC assets in Lineage view

We have created custom attributes in IGC to capture logic for lineage. But this attribute is not displayed when we view lineage for OpenIGC assets.
An example would be the column level logic custom attribute that is applicable to column assets across different asset types.

For a database column, we are able to see all the attributes that fall under the general information section.

But for any OpenIGC asset this information is not shown in the lineage view. If we expand the tab to that specified asset we can see this information.

It would be great if this can be done as there is no other way of capturing logic when using flows for lineage with OpenIGC assets.

How should it work?

general information section should be available for OpenIGC assets similar to asset types defined by IBM

Idea Priority Medium
Priority Justification Lack of this functionality shows poorly on the usage of flows for lineage-we are unable to clearly use and understand a lineage map
