Hue binding - User name for Hue bridge authentication not available in configuration. Setting ThingStatus to OFFLINE

Hi all,

after upgrading from 2.4. to 2.5 the hue binding is spamming my openhablog. I have already paired the bridge again with OH and added manually the user Name into the things file.

Here is an example for the log.

Here is my hue.things file.

Bridge hue:bridge:1 "HueBridge" [ ipAddress="192.168.0.70", userName="eK5R-oALLOZeGFla8BWhxgcNm2jiHVMn2TXgazNf" ] {
    0210 bulb1 "LED Leiste" @ "Büro" [ lightId="1" ]
}

I can control the hue device from openhab without any problem.

Any idea how to solve this? Or is it a bug and I didn’t find anything in the forum resp. github.

Thanks in advance.

Best Regards,
Marcel

After some time trying to solve that issue I found a solution by deleting all hue things in the Paper UI.
