[SOLVED] Struggling to Expose items to OpenHAB Cloud

I have no issues with connecting to my openHAB instance remotely however I’m struggling to get an item to update to the cloud so I can update it using IFTTT.

I have the openhabcloud.cfg setup correctly as per the documentation, querying it via the API makes me thing the config file is working as expected…

  "mode": "remote",
  "expose": "FitBit_Weight_Tommy"

I have updated the state of the item a number of times but it’s just not updating to the cloud for some reason…

Any other suggestions?

Anyone got any thoughts on this?

Your code snippet doesn’t look like what’s shown in the OpenHAB Cloud Connector configuration documentation that I used:

Rather than using the config file, I use Paper UI to expose items to IFTTT (also shown in the documentation). I would suggest trying this method. Note that you have to trigger the item at least once for openHAB to push an update to the cloud. If I recall correctly, the item did not immediately show up in myopenHAB or IFTTT. I had to wait awhile for it to become available.

Okay, looks like a few reboots and just leaving it for a few days and now it’s working as expected :slight_smile:
