I can't seem to find any clear documentation that explains how the Constant and Show Field setting impact a Load to Features rule.  Anyone know or have a URL to share for good documentation?

Hi Todd,

'Constant' lets you pick from a simple list of possible values: Is Feature X licensed or not? Is Feature X enabled or not?  Whereas 'Show Field' lets you pull the value directly from a field you've queried (by adding to 'Show' in the previous step). The benefit is that if there is a checkbox/boolean field already in your source data that can tell us whether something is enabled or not, we can directly pull that in, as opposed to building separate actions for each possible value.
