Retrieve the release ID of a pending release candidate.

I am using the API.  I am hoping there is a way I can retrieve the ID of a pending release candidate.  I would also like to be able to retrieve the ID of a discarded candidate.  Currently It seems a discarded one is invisible to the onshape user interface.  But If I click the link from the originating notification email, the discarded release does still  get pulled up so it does seem to still exist in the system.  Most interested however, in retrieving a pending releases id through the API.

    Thanks @raj_Onshape
    I have setup a little process where I pull in a list of all the pending release packages.  I then loop through them making a call for each releaseId in each item and compare the part number/revision I am trying to find the pending release for.  When the process finds the matching part number/revision in a release package, it sets the releaseId to the item I am processing so that I can open up the correct pending release.  This takes a long time to process.  I feel like I am misunderstanding your direction here.  I feel like I should be able to make one call or something to acquire the Id.  What are your thoughts?

    When we right click on a document version, we can see a list of the release candidates contained in that version.  I'm hoping that we have the ability to pull in a similar list that is specific to a version through the api as well
