After a recent upgrade to 107.7 all of my groups have disappeared from the lovelace UI. I found some changes in the changelog about groups, but don’t see how they relate to my setup.
I define groups in groups.yaml manually, and then use those entities in the UI. Are there any other config changes I need to do to make these work? From reading it seems like the manual definition in the groups.yaml file is an old school way of doing it, but I can’t find a way to create groups in the UI.
I read this thread which sounded related despite being for a much older version, but it didn’t help.
Groups as a frontend construct have been deprecated, you can still use them in automations, scripts etc, they just won’t group your entities in the frontend. You need a lovelace card for this, like e.g. the entities card. There’s no way to configure groups through the UI (there are areas, but they don’t have a lot of functionality yet), you need to configure them in configuration.yaml.
