Nube, been away from OH too long. Looks like things have changed again (yahoo wx no more, dark sky, on the way out, wx underground. . .) So, is OWP the only show in town now? That’s fine, have API key for year-plus, but trying to set it up
Sorry for the nube question, but I’ve done searches here and google searches, no joy:
Configuring the binding, I added my API key, set language and left refresh at 60. But I cant find anything in the OpenWeatherMap Binding page instructions for setting Location for the account. Is it City, US? Or Lat/Long?
In the Weather and Forecast Thing configuration, there is a location setting. If you have a location set in the OH System properties, I believe it will be pulled in by the binding. In case you don’t want to setup 700+ Items and would like to get forecasts out of the data …
Sorry, but someone’s gotta hold my hand. I don’t see/know where to look for the Weather and Forecast Thing. When I go to Configuration > Things, I see OpenWeatherMap Account (OFFLINE); clicking that I get “OpenWeatherMap Account”. Click blue edit button, then I get back to the original page in question, waiting for Location to be entered.
Where to I find the Weather and Forecast Thing?
Then in your reply you link to your post about the Jython rule. Relevant to me? I’m still learning to crawl. . .
There is a location field for the Account bridge, but that is not what you want. But if your Account Thing is not coming online, then you will need to sort that first… probably the API key is incorrect. There should be logs, but you may need to enable debug logging for the binding. Once the Account is online, you can do a discovery for the binding and it will find the Weather and Forecast Thing.
Relevant to everyone who can follow instruction ! Manual Jython installation instructions are here, but you can also use the beta Jython addon.
Deleting the Things and then uninstalling and reinstalling the binding wouldn’t hurt. There’s not much to the Account Thing… just API, refresh interval, and language. You mentioned you had the refresh interval to 60s, but you must have meant 60 minutes. Try setting it to the minimum of 10 minutes. I just deleted and readded my account Thing and it took a little while for it to go online… maybe the refresh interval.
What do see in your browser if you replace your_api_key with your api key?
Nothing more is expected in Karaf. You will now need to look into your openhab.log.file to see what is happening with the binding. I keep a screen session that is tailing the openhab.log, and then I ssh in to view it. You can also use the log:tail command in the Karaf console.
While viewing the log, recreating the account Thing would be interesting info.
