Please help me. Where is the embed code? Please with example code, I need to see the whole syntax.

You say you have correct permissions but not what you did. Did you add the openhab user to the dailout group?

If you are running Jessie on a RPi, check if the ‘getty’ is on the serial device.

sudo systemctl status serial-getty@ttyAMA0.service;

You never confirmed this…?
