So this is my situation, I have a bridge handler that discovered a few things that havent been configured. How do I add it to the "inbox?"


e.g:
public class PartitionBridgeHandler extends BaseBridgeHandler {

...
  private void receiveUpdateFromSource(int sourceID) {
    PartitionBridgeConfiguration config;
    for (Thing eachThing:  this.getBridge().getThings()) {
        config =  eachThing.getConfiguration().as(PartitionBridgeConfiguration.class);
        if (config.sourceID == sourceID) {
             // Found the thing
            eachThing.getHandler().updateState(...);
        } else {
            // not found suggest add to discovery... but how?
       }        
    }
  }
...  

}

A bridge or thinghandler should never add anything to the discovery. Instead you should write a service that implements DiscoveryService and that creates a DiscoveryResult which can be added to the inbox.

If you need access to the bridgeHandler from your discovery service implementation, create your service from the ThingHandlerFactory, just after you have created the bridgeHandler and pass the bridgeHandler to your service. But you should only use the handler to communication with the device.

For am example, have a look at the hue binding: https://github.com/eclipse/smarthome/blob/36a470bfceb32e1eee511142a298dd6608a0b85c/extensions/binding/org.eclipse.smarthome.binding.hue/src/main/java/org/eclipse/smarthome/binding/hue/internal/HueThingHandlerFactory.java#L104-L109
