Hi All, The Platform Events feature looks very interesting for our teams working with Flyte workflows. We plan to consume Flyte events through a 3rd party service. I had a look at the underlying event messages and found that in TaskExecutionEvent we can send plugin specific execution event information. This field in particular looks very interesting:
custom_info - Custom data that the task plugin sends back. This is extensible to allow various plugins in the system
I have searched the documentation and could not find any reference to its use. Can you please shed some light on this? I'm interested in how to enrich
TaskExecutionEvents
with
custom_info
in a Flyte agent.

could you say more about your use cases. you agent will produce a custom_info. and you want to add those info to the event?

thank you! so, once it's added, we just need to set
custom_info
field in our agent, right?
