SmartThings Community

[BETA] Community SmartApp Installer

Sorry for being daft but I have followed the instructions on the Wiki page and get to enabling OAuth, i click “Update” and get the error message “Access to was denied”. What am i doing wrong?

@tonesto7 HELP!! Your ecobee3 “walk through” video (or link or whatever) is broken. Can you please fix it? I need it! :slight_smile:

Hey matt - Like sumguyatvt, I just got my hub and I followed those same instructions. I’ve updated everything (handled the Oauth stuff juts fine I think), but for whatever reason, in my Smartthings app (I’m using the new one, not the classic), I cannot access the marketplace. I too am looking into integrating my NEST, but when I click on the “Automations” button at the bottom of the main nav bar in the app, there is no reference to “ST-Community-Installer”. All it asks me to do is create a new automation, and when I do that, I don’t see any reference to ST-Community_Installer.

Any suggestions?

FWIW, I can see the "ST-Community-Installer in my IDE under “MySmartApps”. It says it is published, and when I head into the Oauth everything says that it is enabled.

Thanks in advance!

You need to install the Classic app and use it :slight_smile:


DOH! I must have misunderstood and thought it was possible to use the new app. I appreciate the extremely quick response though! thank you.

You can use both apps. But there are some apps and device handlers that do not currently work in the Samsung Connect app.

Awesome - thank you again jkp. I’ll get there eventually :).

I was able to get the Nst Manager app to install (yay!), now apparently I just need to create a Nest developer account to be able to log in.

You should be able to open the smart-apps under the new Mobile app once you install it using the classic app

So, I have the ‘Community SmartApp Installed’ installed. Using the original Smarthings app I can see it, I can run it, I can see the manifests(SmartApps) BUT…

I select one ( Echo Speaks )
I then get all the information and the option to install…

I pick install, I then seem to get stuck on ‘Analyzing Repos’… constant spinning… Below I have green checkmarks on 'Smartthings Authentication (Even though I I selected Samsung authentication) and a green check by the repo (echo speaks) Not Added…

Any ideas anyone?

during installation, when I enable OAuth, the keys are “auto-generated” and when I hit Save, I just go to a white screen and it did not take. Is that something that I can work around?

I’ve noticed this issue while using only Chrome browser… Try Firefox or Edge

I was on Safari and when I used IE, it worked fine. Thanks for responding.


Can anyone help with getting the walk through video working (or point me to it)? I would love to have this option for updating my Apps, but, at this point I’m pretty confused concerning the community installer. I have to delete and add code to the SA/DH.

I’m experiencing the same issue, did you find any resolution?

Very excited about this but I can’t get to the final step that saves the install. What am I missing? I’ve tried in both classic and new apps. I’m not sure if the first image is anything to worry about, it flashes super fast and then the menu loads. The 2nd one is after install but there’s no back/save that seems to work

I think I figured out the issue… I had to disconnect and reconnect my repository. Once I did that everything worked perfectly.


Which repository did you have to disconnect and reconnect? The one for @tonesto7? I’m getting error messages too immediately after logging into installer site.

Mine hasn’t worked since I posted here. I tagged @tonesto7 but never saw anything. I tried disconnecting and reconnecting completely and still no solve. So I just uninstalled it.

I’m not able to duplicate this issue. I will continue to see what I can find though.
