Troubleshooting

.................................................................................................................................

Issue #1: I want detailed Logging/Notifications

......................................................................................................................................

In order to have detailed Logging/Notifications, you'd need to do the following:

  • a) Set the following flag to true
   "Detailed Logging & Notifications?", required:false


  • b) To receive push notifications, answer 'Yes' to the following input parameter
   "Send a push notification?", metadata: [values: ["Yes", "No"]],

P.S. Notifications are sent early in the mornings (right after midnight)


.................................................................................................................................

Issue #2 - My new Ask Alexa's Message Queues are not showing up in the smartapp

.................................................................................................................................


You'd need to execute the ecobeeGenerateStats smartapp under Automation/Smartapps in the ST mobile app by doing "Next" till "Done" to subscribe to the new AskAlexaMQHandler. The new handler will then be able to process any Queue refresh value from Ask Alexa.


You can then go to the AskAlexa smartapp, and make any queue changes... The updated queue values will be then sent to the smartapp.
