NTP time to KNX bus linking issues


I’m using OpenHab 3.2 in Docker and trying to send NTP date/time to KNX.

I have the following device (thing):

UID: knx:device:datetime
label: KNX Date Time
thingTypeUID: knx:device
  pingInterval: 600
  readInterval: 0
  fetch: false
bridgeUID: knx:ip:interface1
  - id: datetime
    channelTypeUID: knx:datetime-control
    label: Date Time
    description: ""
      ga: 0/4/0

and the following item:

When trying to link them together, after selecting the device (the thing), the channel list stays empty. Am I missing something or is it a bug?

I wasn’t aware it’s even possible to link from Item to Channel.
Did you try the other way, i.e. select channel from thing, then add link to item?

Try this, it is working fine.

Afaik you need to create the item on the things channel. Then you can link this item to another channel. So try creating an item on the knx side as well before trying to link it that way.

Unfortunately, then I cannot select any Item

Did you enable non-semantic items? (at the bottom of the box to select the item)

This really could be the reason. I knew there was something, but already forgot about it. Good point !
