Keyboard Shortcuts

OneOps supports a number of keyboard shortcuts that enable an advanced user to navigate to specific components and other entities within the context of the current organization. These keyboard shortcuts trigger the appearance of an input control in a pop up dialog. You can type multiple values to narrow down the returned data to the desired results. Up to 20 results are displayed. Clicking on a result allows the user to navigate to the entity.

ALT-o: navigate to a specific organization.
ALT-d: navigate to an entity in the design phase.
ALT-t: navigate to an entity in the transition phase.
ALT-p: navigate to an entity in the operate phase.
ALT-g: go to an entity, adding a stand-alone d, t or o character to the query narrows the results to the design, transition or operation phases.

Short URLs

OneOps supports some short URLs. A user can type these URLs faster and navigate to the entity with a known identifier.
