As I am thinking through how to build my various python rules I have cases where multiple Items need to be updated before an event can then act on those Item changes. In the past I have had an args array with multiple key:value pairs received and processed. With the REST API I can make REST HTTP Requests to modify single items which means I would need multiple REST Requests followed by the final Action that would trigger the Item Event.
So, the basic question is: Is there a better way to do this? I am thinking about this correctly in the OpenHab world? Perhaps there is a JSON Item I could create and then use a single REST access to update it?
Sorry for the basic question but perhaps others have had the same thought.
