[NEEDS UPDATING] Home Automation Dashboard (HAD)

It looks like there was another background update pushed to the SmartThings platform yesterday and it appears to be impacting the OAuth workflow. Basically, any mobile app or web app that uses OAuth can successfully complete the authorization and get the necessary token for viewing/controlling your devices, but the list of devices is not properly being saved.

I don’t personally use the Home Automation Dashboard, but I imagine it is using the OAuth workflow and is probably suffering a similar fate as IFTTT, Harmony, and other apps that use OAuth. The simple workaround for this is to switch back to the main SmartThings mobile app and authorize Things for the SmartApp in question.

Check out the video showing the workaround applied to my Android app, SharpTools (Tasker and Widgets for Android):
