HTTP Binding stopped working

Hi @all!

I have had to following configuration successfully running for some time on a debian machine. Since the last OH2 Update it seems that it is broken somehow or has at least some problems.

I’ve configured the item as follows and can call the url manually fine

Switch lgtv_power "Fernseher" (EG_Wohnzimmer,Schalter) [ "Switchable" ] {http=">[ON:GET:] >[OFF:GET:]"}

Has anybody similar experiences or is this related to my setup only?


The binding is installed?
Are there any messages in the log?

The binding is installed. At least the GUI says that.
Logging seems also to be broken since the update because I do not see any entries in the log. I did not have the time to check yet.
As I remember it did work sporadically after the update, but currently nothing happens.


try to use bundle:list and see if http binding is active

270 │ Active   │  80 │ 1.11.0                 │ openHAB HTTP Binding

looks like the binding is working.

In my case if there are no dfatas from the device I get nothing in the log. Because no error.

Try to start with something easy:

String testhttpvalue  "Test [%s]"     { http="<[$.*)]" }

This will query an internet page and give you the result in a string. This should be in the log. If this is working, then we can see next steps
