is it possible (e.g. through a rule) to trigger the update of an item’s value? And by triggering an update, I don’t mean setting its value from a rule, cause I know I can call .postUpdate( ) with a value.
Actually, I’d like for an item to refresh its value through the binding it is configured to use. Therefore, if I have an item that is configured to receive its value through a http binding on a time interval, I’d like to refresh its value on my own, i.e. from a rule, before the interval is due to do that.
Is this possible?
Of course I can make this workaround where I code my custom API and, then, call it from a rule in order to read the value from the source (the same way a http binding would do) and forward it to OpenHAB’s REST API. Yet this is impractical if this was possible to do this from a rule with one line.
Best and Thanks for your help,
