show [running/startup] configuration VERBOSE

It would be REALLY nice to be able to get a complete printout from the CLI of all the options currently running under a configuration, not just those that have been manually input by the user.  As it stands now, it's impossible to recall all of the factory profile settings that go into a 'default' profile, or take effect in the absense of a line being manually defined in a new user-defined profile.

 

For instance, if a user defines a rf, vap and ssid profile for an AP group but chooses to leave all the others as Default, it doesn't mean there is nothing being applied via those default profiles as todays "show running configuration" would suggest, but unfortunately in today's case options are set that the user has no immediately visible way of seeing via the CLI.

 

While all of the factory included settings are shown via the WebUI, that's not really an effective way to quickly and comprehensively show "this is every knob, bell and whistle that is running on this configuration" without flipping through all the various profiles in the tree individually.

Being able to see a verbose, complete printout of the running/startup configurations would also be very helpful in Diff'ing what has changed between code revisions.  If an AP Group is using partially "default" profiles without tweaking them, on a code upgrade they may be subject to a setting being changed that the user wouldn't even be aware of (if a new code rev's profiles changed Default values).

Please consider adding a 'show configuration verbose' type of command in the CLI to show the complete configuration file.
