Over the years, I've used a lot of various CLIs and each have their own awesome ideas. 

So, is there a way to request features?

If so, tab auto complete of user defined options is AMAZING.

Also, "logging synchronous" and "Show display | top set" to show the commands to make the entire configuration.

Hi Corey

You'll be happy with the lastest release 8.0.90 in which there is Tab auto-completion. And I'm agree with you that is very useful and save time.

Other features need to be investigated with Product Manager.

Cheers

8.0.90a does not seem to do tab auto-completion for user-defined items



ICX7150-C12 Switch(config)#ip access-list extended TEST

ICX7150-C12 Switch(config-ext-nacl)#permit ip any any
ICX7150-C12 Switch(config-ext-nacl)#exit

ICX7150-C12 Switch(config)#int e 1/2/1

ICX7150-C12 Switch(config-if-e1000-1/2/1)#ip access-group
  DECIMAL        Number
  ASCII string   Access List Name
  frag
ICX7150-C12 Switch(config-if-e1000-1/2/1)#ip access-group TE
  ASCII string   Access List Name
ICX7150-C12 Switch(config-if-e1000-1/2/1)#ip access-group TE
  ASCII string   Access List Name
ICX7150-C12 Switch(config-if-e1000-1/2/1)#ip access-group TE
  ASCII string   Access List Name
ICX7150-C12 Switch(config-if-e1000-1/2/1)#ip access-group TE
  ASCII string   Access List Name
ICX7150-C12 Switch(config-if-e1000-1/2/1)#ip access-group TE
  ASCII string   Access List Name
ICX7150-C12 Switch(config-if-e1000-1/2/1)#ip access-group TES
  ASCII string   Access List Name
ICX7150-C12 Switch(config-if-e1000-1/2/1)#ip access-group TES


If it were going to do that, it would offer to autocomplete the word TEST being it was a user-defined object.

Hello Corey,

As explained above, tab based auto completion seems limited to system level commands, This enhancement is added from 08.0.80 onwards, You may reach out to your accounts or SE team to channel this request to PM team.
