Setting the Editing Level for the SRC CLI


The editing level determines which statements and commands are visible to a user from the SRC CLI. Table 17 describes the editing levels.

Table 17: Editing Levels




Only values that must be configured are visible.


Common values and basic values are visible; this is the default setting.


All configurable values, including the common and basic values, are visible.


All configurable values and internal values used for debugging are visible.

If you log in to the CLI as root, the default editing level, normal, is available to you because root does not require a user profile to access the CLI. Although root access is used for initial configuration of a C Series Controller, user accounts are used to enter commands and statements at the CLI.

The editing level can be set for:

  • Specified users in the user profiles

  • A current user session.

For information about the editing level of configuration statements and options, see the SRC PE CLI Command Reference.

To set the editing level for the CLI:

  • In operational mode, use the set cli level command.

    • set cli level basic

    • set cli level normal

    • set cli level advanced

    • set cli level expert

To view the editing level of the current CLI session:

  • In operational mode, use the show cli command.
