Cannot create simulated switch

Early yesterday, I was able to create several simulated switches in SmartThings IDE. From late yesterday until now, however, when I try to add more simulated switches, I get the following error message: Access Denied -
We’re sorry, but you are not authorized to perform the requested operation. Does anyone have any idea why this is happening? Thank you.

Thanks! That worked.

You can also install the SmartThings SmartApp that allows you to create virtual devices without the need for logging into the IDE.

It allows you to create a Virtual Switch and Virtual Dimmer Switch

Goto Marketplace / + More and scroll to bottom:

It will create each device as Virtual Switch 1…2. Then go into Things and rename it.


Thank you!
