OH3: Thing.channel description does not stick

  • openHABian 3.3.0 on rPi4

When I enter a Thing.channel description and save it, then call the Thing and look at the channel, the description is not longer there.

Not sure what to do with it… no info on the forum or elsewhere…

I already opened an issue on that topic.
The answer was more or less: Please write a PR by yourself if you are interessted in that topic :sleepy:

This ( Channel Description field not existing in "Configure Channel" · Issue #1346 · openhab/openhab-webui · GitHub ) one ?

but I’m a bit unsure, as of the lack of replies.
Maybe I asked this again in Discord as I haven’t got a reply in github.
Have to recheck, where got the answer to program it by myself if I’m interrested in this topic.

seems you got it here FIND SOURCE ... Incoming payload 'off' not supported by type 'NumberValue' - #8 by rossko57
but seems to be in a different context.
