    Hi.

    Here is a test file that posts an error message if an interface status changes between snapshots.

    Test interfaces:
     - command: show interfaces terse
     - iterate:
         xpath: physical-interface
         id: name
         tests:
           - no-diff: oper-status
             err: "Test Failed: oper-status of {{id_0}} got changed from <{{pre['oper-status']}}> to <{{post['oper-status']}}>"
             info: "Test Passed: oper-status is the same, before it was <{{pre['oper-status']}}>, now it is <{{post['oper-status']}}>"

    I know that {{ id_0 }} is a variable containing the name of the interface whose status has changed. But what does the "_0" in the variable name stand for?

    Thanks,

    Deepak
