Habdroid Notifications tab missing

I no longer have access to the Notifications tab on my Hamburger/Flyout menu in openHAB Android 925). My flyout now has Sitemaps, Discovery, and Bindings, but no more access to Notifications.

I still see all my notifications on the https://myopenhab.org/notifications interface, but I can no longer see them on Android at all. I use the sendLogNotification(“blah blah blah”) command pretty heavily so I can keep an eye on what’s going on, but now I can’t see it from Android anymore.

Is it just me?


@digitaldan Are you the maintainer for openHAB Android?

Will the Notification tab functionality come back or is it gone for good?

Hi, I wonder about the same. Maybe @digitaldan can answer?

Hi, the functionality is not removed, so I assume this is a bug. I have not had a chance to look a it yet (or really anything OH related) for the last week or two, I’m hoping to get some time this weekend. In the mean time I went ahead and opened an issue for it, https://github.com/openhab/openhab.android/issues/356


For some reason, this bug was closed, but it definitely wasn’t fixed.

And now over on https://github.com/openhab/openhab.android/issues/392 there’s talk of removing the entire “side menu”, which is assume is the Flyout menu?

@Kai, am I understanding this correctly?

Any chance of getting the Notifications tab back?

No, only “Bindings” and “Inbox” menues were removed, but this change has not yet been rolled out.

OK, thanks.

What about getting Notifications back into the app? I was so happy when they were added, because that was one of Smartthings major advantages to me, to be able to see my event history. But now it’s gone… and the ticket was closed.

Can we re-open that ticket, or should I open a whole new one?

Isn’t it closed, because it has just been fixed in the code? So there is no point in re-opening it, all you have to do is to wait for the next release (or build an apk yourself).

I misread the date on the fix, sorry!

Will wait for the update, probably won’t have time to setup a build environment for a while.
