Zwave properties disappeard?

For some reason nI can not change my properties for any wave thing? In the paper UI I see that properties are available but when editing I can only change the name and location of the thing nothing more?

Any suggestions?

You need to elucidate more. :smiley:
What controller? What devices? Are they fully discovered?
Since things did not go as planned did you follow the binding instructions and post debug logs? :wink:

This is correct - it is not possible to change the properties of a thing.

I was unsure whether they were referring to an openHAB Thing or the more general English definition of the word. That was definitely a poor choice of terms when openHAB was first developed.

Well, I’m not sure. While it is a little confusing in some ways, it came from the term “Internet of Things” - so OH also coined the term a “Thing”. I think it makes sense, but it is a bit confusing at times…

Anyway, properties can’t be changed - whatever the name is :slight_smile:

I thought IoT was Internet of Trash… At least that is usually the security result. :thinking: :face_with_raised_eyebrow:

Looking at the discussion yes I do need to elucidate more, so here it goes :wink:

I am talking about the Z-Wave Things, I see a 500, Internal server error. Path taken: Paper UI -> Configuration -> Things -> [A zwave thing] -> Edit
When i do that I see a quick notification of a 500 error.
As far as I know the device/thing is fully discovered, even deleted one a did a rediscovery, same issue

In the log I see the attached stacktrace.
Openhab.log (9.7 KB)
events.log (10.7 KB)

Just for your information I have used the script to add a snapshot version of the ZWave bindings but since then upgraded to the latest release. (see a previous question of me)

apt list --installed | grep openhab
openhab2/stable,now 2.5.3-1 all [installed]

I asked about the particular device because we have over 1100 device entries in our database. It can be difficult to generalize.

What browser(s)?

Almost feels like a chat :slight_smile:
Fibaro dimmer
FGD211 Universal Dimmer 500W

And its a chrome browser, Version 80.0.3987.149 (Official Build) (64-bit)

Db Reference 118
deviceId 0x109

Chrome 's caching can be troublesome at times. You could also try with HABmin to see if you get the same errors.

Same issue, although i dont see the error. Tried safari as well. Thing is I dont see the stack trace now?

Could it be that with the manual install of the zwave binding file and the upgrade I broke something? A reinstall with a restore is quickly done…

Did a delete install and restore all good now!

Would you mind sharing your exact steps. Been having this issue for a few days now.
