Things not updated in selectbox to create equipment (openHAB 4.0.3 UI)

Hello everyone,

I created a new thing in a .things file (thermostat) and I removed an obsolete thing from the UI (smart TV) using the openhab-cli console (things:remove ).

After a restart of openHAB I see the thermostat thing in the openHAB UI and the smart TV is gone. So far so good!

Now when I go to Settings → Model and want to create an equipment from the thermostat thing, it doesn’t show up in the selectbox. However, the removed smart TV thing still can be selected!

Why does the selectbox not show the up-to-date things whereas the things are correctly displayed in Settings → Things?

What can I do to fix this?

Thanks, Stefan

I was investigating further and looked into the browser’s developer tools to find out which things are returned from the /things REST request. The response contained the updated things. And then the updated things were also selectable.

So my problem is solved. I just don’t know why. Maybe it took some minutes for the openHAB backend to be ready to provide the updated things.
