Cron resets to 08:00 when updating in adminstration/Rules dialog

Openhab 3.0.0 on Arch Linux

When updating an existing cron definition for a rule the dialog defaults back to 08:00 instead of the existing rule.

Example: Let’s say I have a defined rule that has a Cron definition of 0/5 * * * * ? * (so every 5 seconds). Now I want to change it to every 10 seconds. I would expect to click on the existing ‘When’ entry and change the 5 to a 10. However, when I click on the entry it resets to 0 0 8 * * ? * (at 08:00). Based on the principle of least astonishment I would expect it to prime the resulting screen with the existing definition rather than a default one.

Apologies if this is not the right place to report this as a bug or enhancement request


This is a good place to start. But unfortunately in this case, you will probably want to file an issue. See How to file an Issue. you’ll want to file i on the openhab-webuis repo.

Thanks Rich, I opened issue #696 for this.
