Trying to modify the programmatically-generated friendly name of a new auto-discovered sonoff switch, and HA won’t do it.
Some entities don’t have the gear icon in the upper right of their properties panel when you open them, and therefore you can’t change their properties from there. When you open the entity from the Customization menu, the “Name” (=friendly name) is listed in the first section that’s greyed out and says that programmatically-generated attributes can’t be edited.
If I attempt to override the entity’s friendly name in the Customization section of the yaml files, I get an invalid configuration file, mapping error at the friendly_name line.
Any ideas? Is it just not possible to override the automatically-assigned friendly name for auto-discovered devices?
