Show Things Online Status in Sitemap

I would like to bind to an Item and then show in sitemap, the status of a MQTT Thing. In my case is Tasmota and I would like to show LWT.
I configured thing to retrieve LWT from tasmota:

Is it possible to use this and bind to an Item, or should I add a new channel to Thing and retrieve LWT again?


You’ve two options. The most straight forward will be to, as you guessed, create a separate Channel and link that to the Item.

But that’s not possible for other Things from other binding types. So a more generic approach would be to use Thing Status Reporting [3.2.0;3.4.9] and in the rule that calls do a mapping between Thing ID and Item name and update the Item as appropriate.
