Auto created items are not managed [message #1738164] Sat, 16 July 2016 18:03 Go to next message

When a thing is created, items are automatically generated for each channel (at least in OH2). I haven't tracked down where in the code this happens since I suspect it's handled through a listener.

Anyway, these items seem to be created as non-managed items - is there a reason this is done this way? It means they need to be deleted and re-added if the user wants to edit them. I don't see why this is required and it would seem better to make them managed items?

Is this a bug, or is there a reason behind this?

Chris

Thanks - I'd seen this refactoring and your comment, but missed the comment toward the bottom which explains these items...

> I am talking about the ChannelItemProvider - it creates "virtual" items when ever a link to a non-existent item is discovered. I.e. these items are constructed upon every system start.
