Smartthings IDE is forcing me to log back in every few seconds


Is this normal? It was doing this the other day and the stopped. When I log in, after a few seconds if I dont click on something else, the next time I do click on something it brings me to the log on screen.

By chance are you running SmartTiles? If you have that up, close that window and try again.


I am and that was it. Any reason why thats happening?

They are fighting for authentication.


Any way to prevent this? Or need to report it to the SmartTiles devs?

Use 2 different browsers.
SmartTiles devs are aware of it. There’s nothing that can be done. It’s an authentication thing since both use your SmartThings creds.


Just open Smarttiles in another browser. This is what i do.

I have IDE in Firefox and Smarttiles in Chrome.

Yep I do the same. Not a support issue, a known feature (SMILE)

Besides, this is small potatoes, we want them to fix the scheduling issues and such so that the system is more reliable and actually works.

Had this same issue and assumed it was an issue with the browser I was in. Glad to know what to do now. Thanks!
