Installing custom Bindings (OH3)?

I hadn’t touched my OH for about a year so I decided to use the upgrade to OH3 as a reason to port back over to a RPI from my PC.

How do I go about installing custom bindings var .jar files? In this case I’m trying to install a MyQ binding. I tried downloading it into the usr/share/openhab/addons folder but it doesn’t seem to show up on my the binding list after restarting OH service.

Thank you!

That is where you install addon OpenHAB 3 bindings. OpenHAB 2 ones will not work.

The specific binding is for OH3

Manually installed bindings never show up in the installed list in the UI.
Did you try manually adding a Thing? The binding should appear there as an option.
