  • [info] change device reference ID

    Is it possible to change a device reference ID?
    I have deleted a device and created a new. I'd like to assign the old reference ID device to a new device (so I don't have to correct my scripts and events)
    Thanks

    Very doubtful. You might be able to change it in the database, but there's no telling what that might affect. You're safer correcting the scripts and events.

      The replace device functionality IS still in HS3, but it has not been tested. If you have already deleted the old device though, you are out of luck.

      If you go to /repl on your HS3 system you will see the page where you can delete a device and give its device reference ID to a new device.

        Good to know! Thanks Rick. I've been wondering that one myself.

          I've been using this quite a bit today and seems to be working well.

              HS3 devices are much more complex than HS2 ones so there is every chance if you were to swap a device that contained extra data that the new device did not have then it could cause all sorts of issues...simple swaps probably are fine.

                Yes especially if some plug in writers don't keep to the rules and take short cuts lol. I have used it successfully today for three rfxcom devices but i backed up before hand and also restarted HS after each change. It saved me soooooo much time......I would not have thought it is such an unusual thing to want to do and I don't understand why this change is not built in and expected in the Architecture

                      Just write your server ip address + /repl...
                      Example: 192.168.1.50/repl

                      EDIT: ops, already solved :-)

                          There is at least one report that this feature can corrupt events that use the replaced device as a trigger.

                              In some particular case this function could be useful I think. I just tried it on two fresh virtual devices, but that's not a '' big '' test lol.

                              Question: Is there any script /script function able set a device to any ref id we want ( I mean, a ref id slot not occupied by another device)?
