Hello Guys! Good day to all. I have added 2 ecobee accounts to my openhab account using the openhab UI. I have deleted my one of my ecobee accounts (on purpose) and I now want to add that ecobee account using openhab API. The only thing that is giving me some pause in this process is UID. How am I supposed to get a UID for adding Things using the API?
So long as you follow the standard formatting for a Thing ID you can make it be what ever you want. It’s usually of the format:
<binding name>:<thing type>:<something unique>. You should be able to tell based on the other ecobee Thing what the binding name and thing type need to be. You can put anything you want (only using the allowed characters of course) for the something unique.
Ok. Thanks alot for the tip.
