Mode: Configuration Mode


The unreadable type are entered into CLI as strings, encoded in display in place of plain-text values (especially useful for passwords and authentication-keys).

It is usually accompanied by 'flag secret'.

            help "Newbie settings";

            attribute secret-key {
                help "Secret message key";
                type unreadable;
                flag secret;


        user@router# set example newbie secret-key ?
        Possible completions:
          <secret-key>         Secret message key
        user@router# set example newbie secret-key "I am Newbie"
