As explained before, ability to retrieve every option is too costly in code and nobody provided rationale as to which properties would be useful. The later in itself puts greate doubt on usefulness to retrieving properties in the first place. closing as "won't fix".

I don't see how request to understand "given property" is different from "all properties". Again you can't request a feature to be able to read just any property. If that what you request then it's a clear "won't fix". Some specific properties can be considered.

The feature I'm requesting would allow a user to retrieve the value of a single property from a single dataset and store it to a variable. So it's not a request to understand and handle all of the different types of ZFS properties. Instead, it is a request to be able to access the value of a given property for a specific dataset.

ZFS doesn't have something like a central list of properties. They are spread across different objects and handled very differently. Supporting all of them doesn't make sense. You need to tell exact options and explain usecases.

This is a feature request to add named property retrieval for ZFS datasets. I am envisioning something along the lines of:

zfs-get-property rpool/some/dataset mountpoint

It would be useful both for manual interaction in the grub shell as well as for grub scripting.
