Input Datetime not working in 2022.4.5?

I’m not sure if it’s me or if there is a bug, but I tried creating an Input Datetime via Helpers and via YAML. Both seem to work as I can see the logs change when I change the time via the UI, but it doesn’t seem to work as a trigger in automations.

I have this for the automation trigger:

  - platform: time
    at: input_datetime.fish_tank_on_time

The helper is set to “Time” only and this looks correct when I check the state in developer tools: 11:00:00

Any thoughts? Am I doing something wrong or is it a bug?


I just ran a test with an input_datetime helper I created in the UI:

Then wrote a simple automation:

- id: test_trigger
    platform: time
    at: input_datetime.date_test
    - service: persistent_notification.create
        message: triggered!

And it fired right on time and displayed a persistent_notification.

Thank you! I just tried it again and it worked. I’m not sure what I did wrong the first time.
