iOS app only starts to work properly when saving settings in app again

I noticed a very strange behaviour of my iOS app:
When I start the app for the first time (after some time, like an hour or so), the screen stays white.
As soon as I go to the settings & just press save, I get to my desired sitemap and can use the iOS app without any further troubles.

Two questions:

  1. Did anybody else notice this behaviour?
  2. What can I do against it?


After two hours of research, I can tell you, that this behaviour only appears when using HTTPS connection (port 8443). When I establish connection via HTTP (8080), everything works immediately without any blank screen.

Bug or feature?

Finally solved by myself by using NGIX authentication instead of direcly exposing OH2 to the internet.
I can everyone recomment to use openHABian - it takes a lot of worries from your shoulders, especially if Linux is not your hometown :wink:
