Alert does not work after 0.117

all my alerts are not working anymore after upgrade to 0.117. Just had a look into the alert documentation, but my definition seems fine.
Templates got the entity_id removed but not the alerts as far as i can see.

  name: Badezimmerfenster geöffnet.
  done_message: Badezimmerfenster geschlossen.
  entity_id: binary_sensor.bs_br_window
  state: 'on'
  repeat: 5
  can_acknowledge: true
  skip_first: true

The error message i got:
Invalid config for [automation]: not a valid value for dictionary value @ data[‘action’][1][‘entity_id’]. Got None. (See ?, line ?).

So where is my problem with my alerts? I’ve got some setup and all have the same issue. Thanks!

Your error message is for your automations. Fix that first, then see if you get any errors for your alert.

Aside from that, what is binary_sensor.bs_br_window?

Also, what is ALL_DEVICES?

Yeah, i figured out its not just a single automation (one automation per file for my config) but a hole problem with my setup and config splitting… -.-

Window Sensor
bs = Binary Sensor
br = BathRoom
window = :wink:

I tried to implement a consitant naming of my mqtt sensors

I was trying to get to the bottom of what type of sensor it is?

Is it a template sensor? If so is it still working with the changes to templates in the last few releases?

No. Its coming directly from mqtt (via Zigbee). I read that the template has changed and double checked allready.

OK, and I take it that ALL_DEVICES is just something you wrote for the forums but in your actual configuration you have something proper like

  - me
  - wife

No. Thats a notify group:

  - name: ALL_DEVICES
    platform: group
      - service: !secret iphone1
      - service: !secret iphone2

Try changing ALL_DEVICES to lower case in both places.
