Add command alias configuration node
Open, WishlistPublicFEATURE REQUEST


On Cisco Routers/Switches there is a so called command alias configuration node available.


alias exec tt copy running-config tftp://

Will create a new custom command "tt" at global configuration level which performs the "copy running-config tftp://" command. Those alias commands could be stored in /etc/bash.bashrc where every system user is able to make use of them.

set system alias command tt "copy file running://config/config.boot to tftp://"

results in:

$ /etc/bash.bashrc
alias tt="copy file running://config/config.boot to tftp://"

Good objection. This should be avoided!
