Zigbee fancontrol item created as readonly


I have a Zigbee HA 1.2 thermostat that got connected successfully to the network and was recognized by the zigbee binding, but I noticed that the fancontrol item is created as readonly.

I am getting the same result when creating items in simple and manual modes.
I created a static thing-type for the device hoping that it might fix it, but it kept creating the item as readonly.

I thought that discussing the problem here before submitting an issue is better since I might be missing something.

NOTE: I can control the item using rest API and it is working correctly, but not in the paperUI.

The zigbee xml file reported the attribute correctly as writable

        <name>Fan Mode</name>
        <lastValue class="int">5</lastValue>

        "options": [

                "value": "5",
                "label": "Auto"

Thanks. I’ve found this issue and will do an update today or tomorrow.

I think here right?

Seems like systemMode attribute is also affected by this issue

Both of these are fixed now.
