Started to delve into OH3 and started migrating. Will use this opportunity to switch from a VM installation to Docker.
I’ve got a question about things though, hope someone can confirm:
I had a mix in OH2 of *.things files for a few specific bindings, but started adding most of the things through PaperUI.
I did a fresh install (Docker) and started moving a few files to OH3. The *.things files work without change and corresponding *.items files too.
Is it correct, that there’s no way of migrating the things I defined in PaperUI?
What’s the best way here? I have a lot of items and don’t want to change them if not necessary. Will the items work if I create the things in OH3 using the same name?
And after I’ve got the things, I can add them as equipment to the model, no matter if they were migrated from *.things files or if I just created them in OH3, correct?
OK great. Is there a way to re-use existing groups for that by tagging them?
Example: In OH2 I grouped all Items for a Sonos speaker, so gSonosBathroom and gSonosLivingRoom. There is also a parent group gSonosAll that contains the other groups. But in this case, I would need to re-use gSonosBathroom as Equipement in the bathroom location and gSonosLivingRoom in the living room location.
If not, I assume there’s no downside of just moving everything over including my groups. Then assigning them to the model which creates new groups.
