- Issue of the topic:
I just installed openhab (Openhabian) yesterday. I add the KNX Gateway as well as two Lights in my Office. Things are displayed as online.
I now like to create a channel and then link it to an item. I am in a thing (switch) which is online and go to the Channel tab. I click ‘Add Channel’, set Channel Identifier to ‘Office.Decke1’ and Label 'Büro - Decke 1", select channel type ‘switch’ and enter the group address ‘0/1/7’. Now I click create and the Channel is created and visible.
Now I want to add Link to Item – I click on the channel and select the + sign. The link Channel to Item screen opens and displays the channel information at the top.
I select ‘create new item’ and fill out the respective fields (this example is for a simple switch on/off).
I click on the button link at the bottom and nothing happens. No message and screen stays as it is. Naturally, I try to change the selection in the mask to whatever possible for a light switch, but nothing happens when I click Link.
The only option is to press <Cancel at the top of the screen.
And now the Channel is gone. The Channel tab is empty as if I have not created a channel in the first place.
If I however go to the item page, I suddenly have the item I created listed as new item.
So, in the end I could create a channel which vanished and could not create an item which suddenly is in the item list.
I checked in openhabian-config for latest updates, permissions etc. and there is not error message or access restrictions.
Does anybody have an idea what the reason could be?
Thanks for your help.
