I did try this and got ‘quite’ far…I managed to create an app and confirmed the url hosting (with the register), it now shows as app when I use the api to get apps. However, I can’t find a way to install it -
@orangebucket I think tried this as well and could probably be clearer on what happens
App installation involves an OAuth process that allows a user to accept any requested permissions. After authorization, an Installed App is created.
So I tried to follow this instruction. I managed to register an Automation App and see it under the ‘/apps’ endpoint.
The CLIENT_ID and CLIENT_SECRET were created successfully. When I go to the ‘Website URL’ from the server log, I’m able to log in with my SmartThings account credentials.
On this step the URL in my web browser looks like this:
The silence on this topic is very odd. It should be easy to say: “we made a mistake and they are fixing the dev portal to allow automation apps as documented everywhere” or “sorry, we don’t support automation apps anymore, please go elsewhere”.
Hopefully it is just an oversite on the dev portal updates…but the silence says otherwise…without notice.
This is true. Despite the change in their developer’s platform, we always wanted to stay with SmartThings due we think it has many advantages from other Smart Home systems, but since we are stuck here, and we just don’t know for how long, we have decided to continue going so we already bought other HUBS to start the migration process.
Hope they can give us insights soon enough before we are forced to use other systems.
@nayelyz I understand you’re not able to say what you’re not able to say, but having Smartapps disabled for a smart home platform is quite a big deal, especially less than a month before a major transition. At the moment people are not aware of solutions that could keep them on SmartThings, that could save them a lot of time and money. Can we have a little more urgency in addressing this issue definitively, because the software engineers have been working on this for 8 days now, and from your last comment, it’s not clear if Smartapps will return at all.
