Configuration dialogs disappear

    • Hardware: Raspberry Pi 4

    • Java Runtime Environment: OpenJDK 11.0.10

  • Issue of the topic: Configuration windows “disappear”

Just getting started with OpenHAB, and have run into a few issues when configuration dialogs in the web dialogs “disappear” out of view without allowing any input.

After installing Openhabian on a Raspberry Pi 4 as per the tutorial, I tried the following:

  1. Add a location

  2. Edit the semantic class, select (for example) “Living Room”

  3. The dialog disappears and returns the user to the “Things” page. No location appears to have been added.

  4. Add a thing (eg, a hue bridge and related items)

  5. Add a location. This time don’t attempt to edit the semantic class and click “create”. The location is created successfully.

  6. Select location. Click on “Create Equipment from Thing”

  7. Select lights from the select dialog.

  8. The selection dialog disappears and the UI returns the user to the “Model” interface. No equipment has been added.

Logged in again this morning and I am unable to reproduce the issue.
