Inbox search not discovering devices
Platform information:
Hardware: iMac (27-inch, Late 2012)
OS: mac OS X 10.10.5
Java Runtime Environment: Java 8 Oracle
openHAB version: 2.4.0
After installing OpenHab in may iMac, just for testing, and installing the Network Binding, no things are listed in my network. Could you please help me with possible problems to look for?

Automatic discovery is known to not work in Oh 2.4. I believe it was fixed by 2.5 M1. I know it’s fixed in the snapshots.

Also, make sure you are using the appropriate process for including each Thing. The inbox won’t find anything until you put PaperUI into the include mode (press the white plus in the blue circle in thre inbox) and by pressing the appopriate button on your Thing at the same time. I’ve been using this method on 2.4 since it came out and it has always worked for me… perhaps, there might be some bug in the various distros… not sure, but give ot a try and see of that helps.

Installing snapshots made the discovery work… Now I will try to use the appropriate process for including each Thing as you mention.

Cool… let us know how it goes… good luck!
