Sonoff Won't show on Control Tab

I’ve configured the mosquittto broker and the sonoff Tasmotta and everything works right except it won’t appear on the control tab.

By looking at the LOG on :9001 the sonoff is connected to the broker, and openhab can receive info from sonoff:
2018-02-26 19:27:57.335 [vent.ItemStateChangedEvent] - SonoffTeste_RSSI changed from 70 to 64

2018-02-26 19:32:58.101 [vent.ItemStateChangedEvent] - SonoffTeste_RSSI changed from 64 to 66

2018-02-26 19:34:12.998 [vent.ItemStateChangedEvent] - SonoffTeste_Verbose changed from NULL to {“POWER”:“ON”}

2018-02-26 19:34:13.155 [vent.ItemStateChangedEvent] - SonoffTeste changed from NULL to ON

2018-02-26 19:34:13.851 [vent.ItemStateChangedEvent] - SonoffTeste_Verbose changed from {“POWER”:“ON”} to {“POWER”:“OFF”}

2018-02-26 19:34:13.863 [vent.ItemStateChangedEvent] - SonoffTeste changed from ON to OFF

thank you all in advance

The only thing that shows in the Control tab of PaperUI are Items that are linked to Channels. Since the MQTT binding is a 1.x binding, there are no Things and therefore no Channels nor Links so it cannot be controlled or managed from PaperUI.

Besides, PaperUI is intended to be an administration UI, not the home automation UI. The Control tab is there to test that your Things and Items are linked and operating correctly. You need to create a sitemap and/or HABPanel to represent and control everything.

Argh - I spent far too long discovering this out for myself.

I must confess that as a new user this is rather surprising. Plus I do want to test my MQTT bindings from the paper UI.

How come the MQTT items don’t bind to an MQTT ‘thing’ that corresponds roughly to the MQTT broker? Ideally it could do MQTT item discovery too?

Soon… MQTT binding version 2.4
