My astro:sun:local thing is displaying Unitialized ,HANDLER_CONFIGURATION_PENDING*

{earliest=The value 1970-01-01T20:00:00.000Z does not match the pattern ^([0-1][0-9]|2[0-3])(:[0-5][0-9])$., latest=The value 1969-12-31T22:00:00.000Z does not match the pattern ^([0-1][0-9]|2[0-3])(:[0-5][0-9])$.}

I am not too keen to remove the thing and recreate it becuase it is linked to many channels.

When you remove it the links to the Items remain. When you recreate it, make sure to set the Thing ID to the same as the old Thing and all the links to your Items will be preserved.

Deleting and recreating the Thing is the only thing to try for an error like this.

Can you show the thing configuration (“Code” Tab).
