Android APP not updating Icons

I am also having issues with the Android app not updating icons when states change. Wondering if I may be missing something, if you have any suggestions.

Default built-in icons - state changes with no issue

Custom SVG vector icons - state does not change in Android

  • Custom SVG Icons change state via WEB interface using Basic UI, remotely
  • Confirmed that “vector” is selected, not “bitmap”
  • Rebooted openhab2, issue persists.
  • Utilizing Android openHAB v2.5.0 - Nov 24 version
  • I do have a reverse proxy configured, and am connected directly to that, not via openhab cloud

It’s possible that the app requests the wrong state for an icon: When you have a slider, the app may request state=0, while the Basic UI requests state=OFF.
I have a commit in the pipeline that enabled reading the app log. I hope I get the commit online in the next few days. This will make it much easier to debug such issues.

@mueller-ma I found my issue. I didn’t realize the openhab Android App itself had a bitmap/vector option. I was setting up everything server side.
I can confirm it is working, now I just need to fix my graphics.
