Add data to ArcPro from Enterprise database connection vs. federated Portal source

Hello all,

This may be a moot point but is there any advantage/disadvantage for either adding a feature class to a map in ArcPro from your Enterprise Geodatabase connection or adding the same dataset from the federated Portal source? They are one and the same dataset but I'm curious to know if any functionality or geoprocessing is changed by the way you add the data into your map within an ArcPro project?

Our organization is transitioning from ArcMap to ArcPro and I wish to advise all our Technicians' on how to properly set up ArcPro projects the first time. Perhaps there is no difference unless you are trying to edit or publish web maps and apps, just not sure. Many thanks!
