Changes are required to the "Config Details" page so that all accounts that can view configurations can determine whether line numbers are displayed or not.
NCM allows you to view the configuration of a device. The configuration is shown in the "Config Details" page. The configuration is shown with line numbers to the left of each line. There is an "Edit" button in the top right hand corner of the "Config Details" page. If the account has the "Allow Account to Customize Views" privilege you are able to select the 'Edit' button on the "Config Details" page. This then allows the user to un-tick or deselect the "Line Numbers" item. If an account does have this privilege, they are presented with an angry error message stating that you are trying to access a "Restricted page" and that you need "Allow Account to Customize Views" privilege to access the page.
An interesting point about the thing about the "Line Numbers" item is that this appears to be user specific. If one account changes this item it will only affect that account. Other accounts will not be affected.
Some changes should be made to the "Config Details" page so that the "Line Numbers" item is improved:
- All accounts who have the authority to view configurations should be able to select whether they wish to see line numbers
- A global system option should be available to determine whether the default view of a configuration should include the line numbers
