[FIXED] Trouble with Alexa Smart Home and filters

Tags: #<Tag:0x00007f326d22ffa0>

[FIXED] I don’t think I restarted properly.

I have the following config which should only pass through the named entities, I’ve saved it and restarted home assistant, however when I scan for new devices in Alexa app everything gets added which is way more than I want in there as I can’t find anything useful.

The docs say if you only have an include filter then it will exclude everything not specified.
