Access delivery date as a field
An entity may have data loaded from various partitions with different timestamps (delivery dates). Users are able to access that delivery date for each record as a field that can be transformed (sorted, routed, selected, etc.)
To add a load date field to an entity, select Include Load Date checkbox upon adding it as a source entity. The field name can be defined by users.
The source entity on the canvas will now display with a delivery date field (though the data does not populate until the dataflow executes).
After connecting a target entity and mapping fields, saving, validating, executing, delivery_date is an instantiated field in the target entity.
