FAQ

What is a mention/reference?

It's a link to an Onshape document like https://cad.onshape.com/documents/6eb1d47ad2b5b4b375c60fae/w/ea628258f7d101b3908e2cdb/e/46f26314ed97b202b6e45902

How does it work?

It searches for the Onshape document ID using the external service's search API and reports back the results with some nice formatting. That's it!

I'd like it to connect with XYZ. How do I request that?

More platforms will be added in the future. Info about submitting requests for more platforms is available on the home page.

Problems

DO NOT CONTACT ONSHAPE SUPPORT FOR HELP WITH THIS APPLICATION!

It's not an official Onshape feature, rather it's an extension in the App Store. For any help requests, please email contact@referencefinder.net.

Known Issues

  • Confluence and Jira require you to put the document ID by itself like 6eb1d47ad2b5b4b375c60fae. Their search APIs don't find subsections of URLs.

  • Google Drive needs links to be pasted right in the text. Having a link like this won't work.

  • Slack needs an admin to add the app to your Slack workspace before regular members can add it.

  • Trello sometimes takes a few minutes for results to be indexed. If you don't see a reference showing up, wait 5 minutes before emailing me.
