I have an item which I dont want to have autoupdate=true on for various reasons. As I understand this should be easy, all I have to do it turn autoupdate off by adding autoupdate=false on the item, then add a rule to update it when it receives commands.
However when I call postUpdate on the item nothing happens. If I turn autoupdate=true the same rule does indeed update the item so the rule is fine. (I am sure it is my update from the rule and not the autoupdate, I update to a hard coded value).
Anyway the question is, is this a bug? Shouldnt I be able to use postUpdate() on an item with autoupdate=false? Isn’t that the whole point? Is this by design?
I know I can update an item with autoupdate=false inside a binding using updateState() but I want to do this in a rule, not change the code of the binding of the item.
