Maybe I’m doing something wrong - or the (new) designer isn’t as far in its development as I expect.
I’m using the “new” Designer on Windows, accessing my config files on my Raspberry via Samba.
Under OH1 this worked very well - when I’ve chosen the directory in the “old” designer, the folder structure appeared - and I was able to edit all necessary files within one interface.
Now, it seems the new designer doesn’t support the subfolders; if I e.g. choose “sitemaps” as config folder, I can edit the sitemap. But if I want to edit the items also, I have to choose the items folder as config folder. And so on.
In the old version, I just chose the root of the config - and was able to switch directories within the designer.
Am I doing something wrong - or is this a “feature”?
Hmmm…where exactly is this “conf” folder?
All my configs are under /etc/openhab2. There are the folders html, icons, items, persistence,…etc - but no “conf”.
When I choose the folder /etc/openhab2, I get the behaviour I described.
My mistake. I assumed that the apt-get install of OH 2 structured /etc/openhab2 similarly to the way it did for openHAB 1.x, which has a configurations folder. I’m running in Docker so have a manual install which does have a root conf folder. Apparently they did away with that in OH 2.
That is actually a pretty common problem. I’ve found more programs I’ve tried to use on Windows do not support UNC shares than do.
Just found this post after i banged my head for a while trying to figure what the issue was … This “Feature” SUCKS! Especially since all the documentation points users to use the ESHD and its not working out of the box. Best thing to share entire /etc folder in 777 mode… :\
And don’t get me started on the configuration options of the ESHD itself … useless … network discovery takes ages, when there could simply be a way to manually add network share. How about working with multiple shares on different machines?
