What is the difference between "configuration" and "fullConfiguration" in assembly instances?

In the assembly api instance lists, an instance will look something like this:

  • id: "Mp2bMzVAHb9uLFNST"
  • name: "Part 1 <2>"
  • partId: "JHD"
  • isStandardContent: false
  • configuration: "default"
  • fullConfiguration: "default"
  • type: "Part"
  • suppressed: false
  • documentId: "f7e4980117b6e6fe3d6cceb2"
  • documentMicroversion: "231e582f0b55644b8295822b"
  • elementId: "f898a89565ea6baaab0cb1c1"

What is the difference between "configuration" and "fullConfiguration"? If I am going to use this to call into the parts api, which one should I use as the configuration parameter?

    full configuration includes the default configuration values whereas configuration only includes non-default values. Either will technically work as together with the microversion, they are enough to specify the complete configuration.
