One of ConfD's data model driven features is the ability to automatically render a CLI from a YANG data model. This powerful feature provides both development velocity and productivity benefits. The user can easily write a YANG data model, start ConfD, and log into a fully functional, industry-standard style CLI. However, the automatically rendered CLI maybe not be exactly what is desired. Therefore, ConfD provides a very extensive set of YANG extension statements which can be used to annotate a YANG data model in order to customize the auto-rendering.
This application note focuses on the most important operational mode CLI extensions for modifying the auto-rendered show commands that are commonly used when developing a CLI interface. It is also a companion to the previously published application note "Customizing the ConfD CLI: Configuration Mode."
