Can no longer use Virtual Switches in Automations

Hey! So I was using virtual switches to connect STHM to other connectors (actiontiles/WebCoRE etc). Seems I can no longer use a virtual switch in a Smartthings automation? I hit the conditions and none of the virtual switches are shown? Seems this broke this week?

See the following thread. There were definitely some back end changes that broke some things. :disappointed_relieved:

Thanks, didn’t see that thread.

For those in the same boat, convert all your virtual switches to simulated switches in the IDE. Will resolve this specific issue. Then check your automations and scenes and make sure they all tie back to your new simulated switches.
