very new to HA, newer to NR - Ive come a long way in the last few weeks, installing HA onto a Pi3, flashing tasmota onto some sonoffs, installed some trial garden irrigation solenoids, interfaced a Google home, reverse engineering some Get URL commands to control some legacy IP switch devices, so Im chuffed with that, ( very steep learning curve). - My next step seems to be automation, and I’m keen to experiment with NR. ( seems easier that the automations in HA.) but I’ve come up against an overwhelming wall. Security / password/ SSL type acronyms. - Currently my HA is running on my LAN, with no plans to remote access until I lock down the system. - But before I do this, I am wanting to play with NR. - Ive tried, read, experimented, reread, retried, but for th life of me, cannot get NR connected to HA.
to date, I can:
see the NR web gui, (local Ip:1880)
Log into NR;
but when I try to call a service node ( per a youtube set up video) i get the following error:
[error] [server:Home Assistant] Home assistant connection failed with error: Connection to home assistant could not be established with config: http://hassio/homeassistant <password redacted>
In the NR addon config I have set SSL to false;
and here is where I am confused.
What password is what in the NR addon config?? and where are these passwords located in HA? - the best ive done is the API password in the secrets.yaml, but once entered into the edit/call/servcei node edit server node area ( where the API password seems to go, restatt everything, still no joy.
“credential_secret”: " I understand this can be anything?",
“username”: “Is this a specific user, or do I just create one?”,
“password”: “Same here?”,
“username”: “Which is the Node password, and is it set elsewhere?”,
“password”: “as above”
“username”: “As above”,
“password”: “As above”
Ive stuffed around so much, de-installing, attempting to delete folders, reinstalling, changing credential secrets, HA passwords etc etc, that I’ve stuffed this up better than grandma’s cushions.
I thought an uninstall / reinstall may have helped, but it didn’t. - I tried to delete folders from HA thinking the reinstall may reinstall them - probably stuffed this up to.
Any advice on how to get out of this mess, with a brief ordered dot point check list, would be very appreciated by a non coding type of guy…
My longer term goal is to have HA, NR and a dashboard running in one of the fancy pants docker doo-dads on my NAS. (OK being silly here) Ive actually installed container station on the QNAP and have a HA and a NR docker set up. need to get the NR / HA 'pallette? installed, but I’ll figure that out for myself… been a steep curve, so much to learn… but damn fun!!
