Add from Catalog sometimes adds Connection and Asset, sometimes just Asset

We noticed that when adding a Data Asset from a Catalog into a Watson Studio Project it sometimes just adds the Data Asset into the project while sometimes it adds the Data Asset and a Connection into the project.

It's not obvious what causes the different behaviors.

The more detail up front - the faster the decisions. See above for specific details. Details like a real-life scenario to explain the problem statement/pain points, current workaround(s), proposed solution(s), benefits/value, # of users impacted and how often.

    If the connection already exists in the project, we do not add another duplicate connection. I'm closing this as this is not an enhancement.

    Hi Raj,

    If the asset was uploaded from your computer to WKC instead of from a connection, then we won't need to publish the connection to the project. Have you noticed that as the trend?
