Release Management: should we release off-the-shelf hardware and components by outside vendors?
How does Onshape handle part numbers and revs of non-custom parts? From example: hardware, or outside components like switches, pumps, etc. I would like to capture the manufacturer's part number (and maybe their revision), but I don't necessarily want to include their parts in our Release Management.
I noticed this because I'm trying to release my first few parts and drawings. I just looked at releasing my assembly, and it's asking me to release all the components that go into it, which includes hardware and other outside components.
Any advice? How are you all doing this?
