get_config_dict: Use utility function for non-empty path argument
Closed, ResolvedPublicFEATURE REQUEST


Currently, get_config_dict provides the sub-config at 'path', by passing the path argument to show_config. This results in

  1. the behaviour cited in T2662 through the interaction of the backend and configtree
  2. an additional dependency on, and call to, the vyatta backend
  3. ceding control of the result to the backend

As an alternative, it is suggested to add a utility function 'get_sub_dict', and apply that to the full config_dict obtained from show_config, for a non-empty path.
