Openhab configuration for Sonoff switches

I have flashed my sonoff 4ch pro with tasmota firmware and using mqtt.fx i can flawlessly control my sonoff switches but i am having trouble with configuring in openhab2 items and sitemaps as the switches wont work though they are displaying in the sitemap. Any help is appreciated

What mqtt binding are you using, 1.x or 2.x? If using 2.x are you trying to configure the Things, Items via files or PaperUI?

I am using mqtt 2.4 binding and i am using the files to configure not the paper UI

We got the same issue like thats although we already install 1.x and 2.x, hope any help😂

Please show the related contents of your files (.things, .items and .sitemap)
Did you read This?

My items file :
//My Switch

Switch Pwr_B_1 “Master Bedroom Light” (LR,gLight) { mqtt=">[mqtth2:cmnd/msterbd/POWER1:command:*:default],<[mqtth2:stat/masterbd/POWER1:state:default]" }

Switch Pwr_B_2 “Master Bedroom Fan” (LR,gLight) { mqtt=">[mqtth2:cmnd/masterbd/POWER2:command:*:default],<[mqtth2:stat/masterbd/POWER2:state:default]" }

Switch Pwr_B_3 “Master Bedroom CFL Light” (LR,gLight) { mqtt=">[mqtth2:cmnd/masterbd/POWER3:command:*:default],<[mqtth2:stat/masterbd/POWER3:state:default]" }

Switch Pwr_B_4 “Master Bedroom Ceiling Light” (LR,gLight) { mqtt=">[mqtth2:cmnd/masterbd/POWER4:command:*:default],<[mqtth2:stat/masterbd/POWER4:state:default]" }

My sitemap:
sitemap home label=“Atluri SmartHouse”
Group item=gFF label=“Master Bedroom”
Switch item=Pwr_B_1 icon=“light”
Switch item=Pwr_B_2 icon=“Fan”
Switch item=Pwr_B_3 icon=“light”
Switch item=Pwr_B_4 icon=“light”

My things file:
Bridge mqtt:broker:myUnsecureBroker [ host=“”, secure=false ]
Thing topic mything {
Type switch : Light “Master Bedroom Light” [ stateTopic=“sonoff/masterbd/state/POWER1”, commandTopic=“sonoff/masterbd/command/POWER1”, on=“i-am-on”, off=“i-am-off” ]
Type switch : Fan “Master Bedroom Fan” [ stateTopic=“sonoff/masterbd/state/POWER2”, commandTopic=“sonoff/masterbd/command/POWER2”, on=“i-am-on”, off=“i-am-off” ]



The items file is using the MQTT1 syntax! Look into the documentation linked above!
On your thing setup, the use of the custom on and off strings looks suspicious.

@opus I am new to this and started learning it if you can guide me that would be very helpful. I will look into the documentation and please tell me what do i need to change for the things file. I hope you do the needful

after looking at the documentation which you have provided there are 2 demo.things files I am confused which format to use can you tell me which is comfortable. I guess the one which i posted previously was similar to the demo1.things format in the documentation

In your things file I would ddelete only this : " on=“i-am-on”, off=“i-am-off”" part.
Have you changed the items file?

Working with the documentation
