Modify output to be more useful - Wireguard
Closed, ResolvedPublicFEATURE REQUEST


There are some places our output can be rendered more useful. For example, running show interfaces wireguard wg0, the output contains zero information, like the user configured peer-name, description, tunnel status etc.

The attached pull request, addresses just the top level one show interfaces wireguard wg0. A few more lines would be needed to address the nested option.

This is an example of the output:

$ show interfaces wireguard wg0

Event Timeline

kroy changed Difficulty level from Unknown (require assessment) to Easy (less than an hour).
kroy changed Version from - to 1.3.
hagbard changed the task status from Open to Needs testing.Oct 21 2019, 7:43 PM merged. While I think the UP/DOWN status is a little brave. It leads users maybe to believe that the wg interface has really a up/down state.

erkin set Issue type to Improvement (missing useful functionality).Aug 31 2021, 6:28 PM
