Remember, that a modification of the profile (`nmcli connection

Oh yes, I was confusing device and connection modify, sorry.
Though what you said above just makes me think about the connection 
reload command.
Granted you're not supposed to manually edit connection files but my 
understanding and experience is that if you do and then nmcli
reload, you still have to reactivate the connection with nmcli 
connection up. So I don't quite understand the use of reloading ?


reload (and `nmcli connection load $FILENAME`) load all (or one)
profiles from disk. This is useful if you edited the profile files
(/etc/NetworkManager/system-connections, or /etc/sysconfig/network-
Reload can also delete profiles (if it delete a file that was
previously loaded).

It's really not much different than adding/modifying/deleting profiles
via `nmcli` or GUI.
