Sorry for the long post, trying to give all the details here and hoping someone can please give me a little help on something driving me NUTS for two days now and before I chuck this whole thing!
- RaspberryPi 3
- Openhabian install with Openhab3, main stable branch
- Everything is up to date
I have had Google Assistant working on my pretty basic setup for a while now and have not messed with it too much at all. Yesterday I wanted to add a few items that I never added back after I had to rebuild everything, corrupt SD card, and opened the openHAB app on my Android phone.
It was not connecting and messed around with getting it to work and at one point just gave up.
Later I asked Google Assistant (GA) to turn on a light and got the unavailable message. Usually, a restart of the Pi fixes that but not this time.
At this point I checked and the service is running, the Items all have the GA Metadata there, all of the Items are exposed in the openHAB Cloud, and it’s all the same from before I tried to get the app to work.
Today I did get the app to connect, locally but not with the remote server. I’m not sure I ever set that up correctly as I don’t ever recall using it but the settings are not holding with the ‘Remote server URL’ keeping the port 443 on the end. I am however able to log in on my PC in Chrome with no issues and see my system online and it all looks fine.
So my issue is that when this has happened in the past I sometimes have to go on my phone into the Google Home app, go into ‘Linked Services’, unlink the openHAB service, and re-link it again. Easy as can be and done so many times it usually takes me less than a minute.
This time I unlinked it no problem but when I try to link again I get this looking like I am about to get the OAuth2 prompt then I get this message.
I have deleted my Home in the app and completely rebuilt it, changed and double-checked my passwords on https://myopenhab.org, undid all the GA Metadata tags on all my Items, and a few other things I am sure I am forgetting.
I have Google’d this issue and searched for it here as well and I do find some posts about this “Couldn’t update the setting, Check your connection” issue and most of what I found were older and involved setting the ‘ga’ tag to expose the Items, I am not even able to get to that point. Note that everything is still controllable in the open app and in the interface, just not in the Google Home app or by voice commands.
I am at my wit’s end and if anyone could please shed some light on this, has a suggestion, or anything to get this working again, I would greatly, GREATLY appreciate it.
Since this seems to be a Google Home issue there may be a log in openHAB that may show this but I am not sure what log, none of the usual logs show any issue.
Thanks in advance!!
