I know there are quite a few posts about the cloud setup and issue, many of which I read before posting…My cloud connector showed in the logs that it installed properly, I matched the uuid and secret, and there are no issues showing in the logs…but, it won’t go online. All I need it for is remote access, no third party at this time. If it matters…The last time it was connected was over 2 years ago.

What Java version are you on?

Sometimes it takes a bit before it goes online. Has it been over 24 hours?

Yes, its been since friday

What do you have in var/lib/openhab2/config/org/openhab/openhabcloud.config for :org.apache.felix.configadmin.revision ?


Stop OH and remove the expose part and see if OH connects.


Also from the console use bundle:list command and verify all below and they are active.

299 | Active   |  80 | 1.0.0                 | IO.Socket Engine Client
300 | Active   |  80 | 1.0.0                 | IO.Socket Socket Client
301 | Active   |  80 | 20180813.0.0          | JSON in Java
302 | Active   |  80 |               | Apache ServiceMix :: Bundles :: okhttp
303 | Active   |  80 |              | Apache ServiceMix :: Bundles :: okio
304 | Active   |  80 | 2.5.0.M4              | openHAB Add-ons :: Bundles :: IO :: openHAB Cloud Connector

Is there special for suggesting such change via this file instead of doing that change via PaperUI?

I have made the changes and am letting her restart. Logs say the connector is started.

Cloud is still offline

I like files… :upside_down_face: :laughing:

Have you uninstalled the cloud binding, stopped OH, manually removed the current UUID from the file, cleaned the cache, reinstalled the binding and used the new UUID?

Also as @opus mentioned have you checked your Java version?

Yes, I did that before. But now, for some odd reason, upon restart…Cloud connector and rest-docs got uninstalled?!

Im going to try again, I’ll let you know in a few minutes.

You may need to restart a few times before everything starts working correctly again. It usually takes 2-3 restarts…not reboots.

If you can’t get your account online, please verify this suggestion from the documentation:

For best compatibility, namely with the openHAB Cloud service and the Eclipse IoT Marketplace, the minimum recommended Java 8 revision is “161”. Attention: Most package managers serve an older revision . Check your current Java version by opening a command line console and typing java -version :

java version "1.8.0_121"
Java(TM) SE Runtime Environment (build 1.8.0_121-b13)
Java HotSpot(TM) Client VM (build 25.121-b13, mixed mode)

After second restart:

In PaperUI you may want to verify you have the correct info for your location set.

Java version looks good. :+1:

I do. Checked that yesterday.
