Part number and revision database

It would be nice if Onshape was able to summarize all of a company's current released parts with their part numbers, descriptions, revisions, etc in a single table. From what I can tell, there is no easy way to do this within Onshape currently.

    @ryan_bruch951 Are you mainly after doing a part number search to see what part numbers have been released?  You can search for latest releases and get parts, assemblies and drawings.  Have you tried doing this from the documents page?

    This is something I'd like to see in the near future also. Would be a useful tool to be able to have this data in one place for all that has ever been released from within a company or enterprise.

    As far as I'm aware this hasn't yet been added beyond what Lou has outlined in the "search My Onshape" function?

    I've asked for a "Release Centric" interface or panel for Onshape since day one:

    https://forum.onshape.com/discussion/12184/release-management-feedback/p1

    An Enterprise releases parts, assemblies and drawings, it's quite cumbersome and confusing to navigate Documents, some of which can contain 100s of elements, versions and/or workspaces!

    As we onboard more teams and projects and we generate more Documents,  it's becoming a problem.

    We don't have this in product but https://github.com/onshape-public/onshape-ts-client contains an example to do this via API.

    Find Revisions example

    $ npm run findrevisions                           # to find only the latest revsions
    $ npm run findrevisions  --all                    # to find all revisions
    

    The script will generate revisions.csv that will contain all part numbers and their revisions ever released in your company. The API Key must be generated for a company admin as only they can enumerate all revisions.
