Authentication for API Access to CCU


i created a PR for enabling authorized access to Homematic server like CCU. It would be very nice if you could help me test it (especially in other environments).

Here is a snippet of the updated documentation to enable authorized access to CCU.

This option may to be enabled if the option ‘useAuthentication’ is set and BIN-RPC is not used. In this case a user and a password must be created. This can be done under Home page > Settings > Control panel with the menu User management. The new user should have the following configuration:

  • User name - button for login: No
  • Permission level: User
  • Expert mode not visible: Yes
  • Automatically confirm the device message: Yes

The user and password must then be entered in the settings ‘userName’ and ‘password’.
