Hi, I came across an example of a yaml file:

            some_int: 42
            a_string: "Hello world"
                some_int2: 24
                some_doubles : [3.14, 2.718]

I have no problems with reading the some_int and a_string like this:

get_parameter_or("some_int", some_int, int(0));

However, I can't wrap my head around how to read some_int2. I tried doing it by inserting the parameter category get_parameter_or("more_params/some_int2", some_int2, int(0)); but it doesn't work.

I'm using rclcpp_lifecycle node (I don't know if it matters).

What is the right way to do it?

Right now, parameters use the . separator... I really don't like this and would like to change it, but a change like this will take some serious time, as we need to sort out addressing of nodes, parameters and services at the same time.

I guess your code works if you use more_params.some_int2 instead.

EDIT: btw, you could use ros2 param list <node name> to see what was happening.
