constraint a download assembly or create one part with several in assembly

Hi all,
I receive all the day CAD files (in step format) I open on Onshape. Most of them are directly opened in one assembly window (sometimes each parts are also opened in a single part studio). But the assembly is never constrained... i.e. I can take a part which is supposed to be fixed and move it freely... So my first question is, is there a way to solve that and to apply the constraints the sender put ? (maybe it is due to the file ?)
Often working with fixed aluminum profil, if there is no solution I wonder if could have create a kind of fixed monobloc assembly with all the free parts originally inside...
Thanks in advance for your help !
