Today I noticed that my Weather station tile is no more updating. (since early in the morning)
When I try to refresh manually, I see this error in the log:
2c321fe7-3a81-4e5c-9100-71d428799d64 12:49:02 PM: error java.lang.NullPointerException: Cannot invoke method toUpperCase() on null object @line 215 (poll)
2c321fe7-3a81-4e5c-9100-71d428799d64 12:49:02 PM: info WUSTATION: Executing ‘poll’, location: 0Home
I examined the code for the tile, and I see that it is complaining about null zipcode
However, I had never entered a zip code to the tile. It was working fine until today.
I am not able to enter zip code because I live outside US.
The tile (and weather underground) only supports US zip codes for search.
In any case I tried with a US zip code, and I can confirm that it works when the zip code is entered.
However, it does not work (anymore) without a zip code.
How can I solve this issue ?
why has it started ?
Btw, when I change my hub location to somewhere in US, it works without a zip code.
So I assume, previously Smartthings cloud was producing a way to search for my location even when zip code is not entered. But now it does not.
