Automation option missing

been searching but can’t seem to find the answer to my issue ,
sometime in about the last fortnight or so the automation option is missing ,
i have blueprints- scenes - and scripts but no automations
tried using a blueprints but not firing because i think due to this,
finally got the ring alarm intergrated but cant do anything with it !
any help greatly appreciated

You have an error in your logs indicating that automations were not loaded, you should post the error in your logs. Also please don’t use screenshots when posting errors or code. Take time to learn how to format code. See this post point 11 to learn how to do that.

cheers for the reply ,
seems i’ve got a lot to learn,just found the logs and have a few errors

Error during setup of component automation

The above exception was the direct cause of the following exception:
