I’m having trouble deleting saving or deleting a rule. When I went to save it I got a blank screen see below. I’ve re-created the rule under another name it is fine. When I go to delete the previous rule I get a message “An error occurred while deleting: Not Found”
Log entry: 2022-05-31 05:06:19.830 [INFO ] [utomation.rest.internal.RuleResource] - Received HTTP DELETE request at ‘rules/Sun_Rise_Trigger’ for the unknown rule ‘Sun_Rise_Trigger’.
Force a reload of MainUI and see if the rule is still there. If so, look in /var/lib/openhab/jsondb/automation_rules.json and see if it’s still there. If not see if it’s still in /var/lib/openhab/jsondb/automation_rules_disabled.json. If it’s still in one of those two files something went wrong while deleting and we can clean it up. But it’s most likely that it’s cached in the browser and a forced reload will clear it out.
Thank you @rlkoshak
The reload did not work. I did find something in “/var/lib/openhab/jsondb/automation_rules_disabled.json”. I tried deleting the contents, but it comes back. What are the next steps? Thank you.
Hello @rlkoshak, Per your instruction I was able to delete the contents of automation_rules_disabled.json. However, I still see the file in the GUI and have the bank screen when I click on it. Any ideas?
If you stopped OH, deleted the full JSON entry for Sun_Rise_Trigger, then restarted OH and forced reloaded your browser I’ve no idea where that entry can be coming from. It doesn’t exist anywhere on the server.
Thank you for your help, @rlkoshak . It does not seem to cause any issue with anything else. When I try and delete now I get " An error occurred while deleting: Not Found". I will continue to search and will let you know what I find. Cheers.
