OH3 Basic Blinds/Shutters (OPEN/CLOSE/STOP only) Metadata Config

Ok, so I’m starting to integrate my Alexa into OpenHab, with some success (some lights, dimmers and temperature sensors). However, I’m struggling to get a very basic blinds/shutter to work.

There is currently no easy way to accomplish that with the Alexa skill but some changes are in the works to ease the configuration of that use case in the near future.

In the meantime, you should check the workarounds in the post below.
