I have a problem with OpenHAB2 with getting rules to import/execute.
When I define rules in PaperUI, I can see them in the web interface and also in Karaf under the scheduler:

However, when I try to use HABmin rules designer, the rules are written to disk but won’t work. They are being written under /etc/openhab2/rules.
ls /etc/openhab2/rules
(1)_office_fan.rules readme.txt

I tried to use karaf to import the office_fan.rules file and it blows up apparently doesn’t like the formatting. (yes, I do understand that I have to escape the parenthesis, etc. I am not a linux/unix novice.)

Can someone help me to understand just how RULES execute or get imported into OpenHAB2. I have poured through a ton of docs and it seems a lot are geared towards older versions. Perhaps I made a mistake of going with Openhab2 vs the older platform. There are no errors in the openhab.log file related to rules or syntax errors. I suspect the HABmin rules are just not being seen at all.

The PaperUI rules are very simplistic and won’t do what I would like accomplish.

Can't see rules in karaf console
(Rich Koshak) #2

First, please use How to use code fences for logs and other data copied and pasted from a terminal.

The Experimental Rules Engine (i.e. rules you create from PaperUI, pay attention to that “experimental,” part of the name, it is still a work in progress) are completely separate from the Rules DSL. Habmin generates Rules DSL (i.e. .rules files). However, I don’t know how well Habmin has kept up with changes to the Rules over the last couple of years so I don’t know if the .rules files generated by it will still work.

.rules files are automatically read into OH as soon as the file is written or changed.

The likely problem here is that there is a syntax error in the generated .rules file. Always look at the logs when you experience problems. You will probably see a line telling you what line and column number there is a syntax error.


(CARL E MANKINEN) #3

Thanks for response,

Is it possible the .rules files need to be dropped into a different folder location?
Presently HABmin is placing them under /etc/openhab2/rules.
The rest of openhab config files seem to be located under /var/lib/openhab2/.

Under /var/lib/openhab2/jsondb there is a file called “automation_rules.json” which appears to be updated with the rules/triggers/events that I defined in PaperUI, but nothing that was done in HABmin.

I was hoping that since the Xtend modules/libraries were showing up in karaf that I would still be able to use HABmin style rules. Seems like tons of how-to’s are showing using .rules files with Openhab2, but I just don’t see anyone talking about how these are picked up and executed. The rule file was generated by HABmin and I don’t think it has syntax errors. Setting logging level to DEBUG produced no error events.

// This rule file is autogenerated by HABmin.
// Any changes made manually to this file will be overwritten next time HABmin rules are saved.

// Imports
import org.openhab.core.library.types.*
import org.openhab.core.persistence.*
import org.openhab.model.script.actions.*

// Global Variables
var boolean Pulsing = false
var Timer _timer_001_A = null
var Timer _timer_001_B = null

// Constants used to generate this rule
// TempHIGH == 18.8
// TempLOW == 18.7

rule "Office Fan"
when
    Item zwave_device_bd10a0f8_node6_sensor_temperature changed
    or
    Item zwave_device_bd10a0f8_node18_switch_binary changed
then
  if ((zwave_device_bd10a0f8_node6_sensor_temperature.state >= 18.8)) {
    Pulsing = false

    postUpdate(zwave_device_bd10a0f8_node18_switch_binary, ON)
  }
  else if (((Pulsing == false) && (zwave_device_bd10a0f8_node6_sensor_temperature.state <= 18.7))) {
    postUpdate(zwave_device_bd10a0f8_node18_switch_binary, OFF)
  }

  if ((zwave_device_bd10a0f8_node18_switch_binary.state == OFF)) {
    if (_timer_001_A == null) {
      _timer_001_A = createTimer(now.plusHours(3)) [|
        _timer_001_A.cancel()
        _timer_001_A = null
        Pulsing = true

        postUpdate(zwave_device_bd10a0f8_node18_switch_binary, ON)

No, that is the correct location.

Like I said before, the two are completely separate. They have nothing to do with each other. You will not find anything associated with .rules files in jsondb and vice versa.

That’s because there is nothing to say. Save a file to that location with a .rules extension and OH will immediately read and attempt to parse it and use it.

You don’t need to set the logging level to DEBUG. But you do have to find the lines where OH tried to load the file and most likely failed which happened immediately after the file was saved to disk. You can force a reload by touching the file.

I can already see that Habmin has not kept up with changes to the Rules Engine and because of this do not recommend using it. For one, none of those imports are needed anymore, and even if they were, none of the classes that it is attempting to import are in those locations any longer.

I’m almost certain there is a syntax error in the code somewhere. Force a reload while watching openhab.log. You should see something along the lines of “Refreshing model ‘(1)_office_fan.rules’” followed by the first syntax error it sees.

One thing that does stand out is that does not look like a valid file name. It may not be able to handle the (1) in the name. Did you add that or was it added automatically by Habmin? If you added that, remove it. If it was added automatically, then that is another good reason not to use the Rules editor in Habmin right now. If you touch that file and you see nothing in openhab.log about it trying to load the model you know that the (1) is a problem.


(CARL E MANKINEN) #5

Hrmm, ok so I saw the imports warning tossed previously and thought that this was just a warning but wouldn’t impact the import of the rule. I also saw the null value comparison warnings.
The (1) was prepended to the filename by HABmin. I copied the file to “test.rules” and also updated the internal script name to “test”.

I fixed all of those and here is openhab.log entries:

No more rule warnings, but I still do not see a rule listed in Karaf, only the rules that were defined in paperUI.
Is it possible I am missing something related to my rules modules/configuration?

openhab> config:list | grep rule
   rules = rules
   defaultHLI = rulehli
   misc = restdocs,ruleengine
   feature.esh-automation-module-script-rulesupport/0.10.0.SNAPSHOT = esh-automation-module-script-rulesupport/0.10.0.SNAPSHOT

   feature.openhab-misc-ruleengine/2.3.0.SNAPSHOT = openhab-misc-ruleengine/2.3.0.SNAPSHOT

Should I be using a different karaf command to list the rules that are running?

(Rossko57) #6

I think that is what you should expect. The file.rules and experimental PaperUI rules are completely separate systems.


(Rich Koshak) #7

I’ll say it again. The two are completely separate. YOU WILL NOT SEE .rules RULES IN KARAF.

Your rule is loaded. Assuming the triggers are right the rule is running and will respond to the defined triggers.


(CARL E MANKINEN) #8

Okay, I will experiment with a simpler rule then and see what happens. Perhaps add some logging within the rule which seems to be an option for debugging.

I think this openhab2 system could use an updated block level diagram/flowchart or something. What I had seen previously showed addons flowed into core, which were built on top of equinox/karaf. As a result, I was under the impression all configuration details were visible in karaf.

I have been banging my head into the wall, thanks for turning me around or at least 90 degrees.
