Persistence documentation clarification

Hello, folks! New OH3.0.1 user here.

I’ve got everything set up, finally. I’ve got my MQTT broker running and I’ve finally got my first item! (Boy was the trying to learn the difference between Thing and Item a slog).

Now I’m trying to set up persistence to keep track of some of these numbers and I’m running into a bit of a problem. In the documentation it mentions using the Settings UI to choose a default persistence layer through a dropdown.

But there is no dropdown.

In the persistence settings there’s just a list of persistence modules that I’ve installed.

Can anybody clarify what to do from here?

Hi Scott, welcome to the Community.

make sure you have a persistence service added to openHAB ( which seems you have ) and then you can set a default persistence service. I hope this helps.
