Cannot link channel to item issue

Yes, but what version of the snapshot. It’s built every night - please confirm the version that is being run.

Hi Chris,

I can NOT find the nightly version in the boot up message.
Is there any simple way to find that info?
I believe I set up my environment a month ago.

Thank you.

Log on to the karaf console and perform a ‘list’ command.

I suggest you simply update to a more recent version.

Thank you, chris.
There is a long list, which one I should post?

Would you please suggest some links for the instructions for update if possible?

Thank you very much.

One of the core bundles would be best, although this version of HABmin is VERY old, so if the rest of the system is just as old, then it won’t support the features you want to use.

You need to download and install the recent nightly snapshot. You can keep the userdata and config folder, but the rest should be replaced with the most recent data. There is a thread on the forum about upgrading but I cant find it right now sorry.

Thank you very much for your information.
Are you talking about below one,

Yes - so your system is very old - approximately 5 months old!

Yes - that’s the one. There is a script that I use for upgrading from @xsnrg in one of the first few messages in that thread.


But xsnrg have NOT posted in the thread.

Thank you.

sorry - wrong thread.

Thank you very much, xsnrg.

Hi chris and xsnrg,
Should I run xsnrg’s script first and copy my original userdata/, conf/ to the new locations generated by xsnrg.script?

Thank you very much.

1 build version #444

2 add “org.eclipse.smarthome.links:autoLinks=false” into runtime/etc/services.cfg. But still when I do binding scan, auto items will be created and linked to thing channel.
The autoLinks has no effect here.
Can some expert shed some light for this autoLinks=false no effect problem?

3 However, by habmin, I can link channel to existing item for my pre-defined sitemap item, and afterwards I can control device by UI.

4 I do can modify the auto created item, but no the name, e.g., label can be changed and saved.

Thank you.

I suggest to use HABmin to do it as mentioned earlier. In HABmin, go to the Services menu and you should find it there…

Auto created channels can not be modified.

Hi chris, thank you for your response.

But I can not find services menu in Habmin.

Should I update my Habmin version or it is already the latest version?

Thank you very much.

$ cat sitemaps/demo2.sitemap
sitemap demo2 label=“demo2”
Frame {
Switch item=S20
Switch item=zwave_device_153bea5a84f_node15_switch_binary

I do define item in sitemap, not sure have made some mistake here.

Thank you.

Strange - I just tested it here, and I get the error that the item is not managed, which is what I would expect.[quote=“laohixdxm2016, post:26, topic:13010”]
As the is Power item is not defined in my sitemap. I call it auto created items.

Items are not defined in sitemaps, so I’m not sure what you mean really.

1 As soon as I update Habmin version, the behaviour is consisten to what you have described.
2 And also there is services menu under configurations.
3 However, although system and UI is there, when I click them, no response.

Do anybody have some idea about this problem?
Thank you very much.

Yep - this is a bug in HABmin introduced recently when I upgraded some libraries. I’ll fix it in tonights snapshot hopefully.
