Shelly uni Thing reported as CONFIGURATION_PENDING on OH 3.2

Hi, I am using openhab 3.2 stable and a shellyuni with 4 ds18b20 temperature sensors. These are working as can be seen on its own, local website (

Inspecting I got its MAC address “483FDA82C2EF” and used that to configure the Thing (I am using files whenever possible):
Thing shelly:shellyuni:483FDA82C2EF “Temp1-4” @ “DG” [deviceIp=“”, userId="", password=""]

The logfiles now show that this is not working:

2022-03-12 22:13:06.964 [INFO ] [ab.event.ThingStatusInfoChangedEvent] - Thing ‘shelly:shellyuni:483FDA82C2EF’ changed from UNINITIALIZED to INITIALIZING

2022-03-12 22:13:08.971 [INFO ] [ab.event.ThingStatusInfoChangedEvent] - Thing ‘shelly:shellyuni:483FDA82C2EF’ changed from INITIALIZING to UNKNOWN (CONFIGURATION_PENDING): Initialisierung oder Gerät im Schlafmodus.

Thank you for any hint.

Same here. Did you find a solution?

Sorry, no solution found. I installed mosquitto, enabled mqtt and thought this might help. But never really tried that. Will do it someday, with rising temperatures outside it moved further down the queue of nice things to do.
