While I intend to deploy a new OH 3.1 setup from scratch at some point in the near future, I was curious if I could convert the items in an existing OH 2.4 implementation (still using the tag format) to the new metadata format?
I’ve recently noticed that when requesting a status of a device (ex. “is the security system on”) Google Assistant responds with “Security system isn’t available. You might want to try setting it up again”. Oddly, I can still turn devices on/off.
Not sure if the tag vs. metadata has anything to do with it, but just curious.
Yes, metadata works in 2.4. More to the point, tags were removed from the server-side Google Assistant Action on myopenhab, and no longer work at all. So, GA won’t work again until you replace tags with metadata.
As you’re thinking, you can just replace tags with metadata in 2.4 and then carry those item files over when you upgrade to 3.
