Alexa not discovering devices when configured manually (Nabucasa)

Tags: #<Tag:0x00007f3266b200f8> #<Tag:0x00007f3266b21660>

Hello, I’m using the Home Assistant Cloud (Nabucasa) and the Alexa Integration. When I use the UI, everything works as expected and the selected Entities can be discovered by Alexa.

However, I want to configure this in the configuration.yaml, since I need to add some custom names to devices which should be controllable through alexa.
The problem is, that nothing gets discovered by Alexa when I configure my entities in the yaml file compared to configuration through the UI.

Here’s an excerpt of the relevant part of my configuration file:

configuration.yaml:

cloud:
  !include alexa_config.yaml

alexa_config.yaml:

alexa:
  filter:
    include_entities:
      - switch.sonoff1
      - switch.sonoff2
      - switch.sonoff3
  entity_config:
    switch.sonoff1:
      name: Stehlampe
      description: Lampe am Sessel
      display_categories: LIGHT
    switch.sonoff2:
      name: Tischlampe
      description: Lampe auf Bücherregal
      display_categories: LIGHT
    switch.sonoff3:
      name: Flurlicht
      description: Licht im Flur
      display_categories: LIGHT

Solved. I used the wrong entity names… :expressionless:
