Is it possible to use notify groups together with actionable notifications


I want to use actionable notifications to a notify group. Is that possible? I can get the actionable notifications working to a single iPhone and I can get normal notifications to work with the notify group, but it does not work when I combine the two.

Code in configuration.yaml:

  - platform: group
    name: notify_all
      - service: notify_mobile_app_tarrild_iphone_xr
      - service: notify_mobile_app_gittes_iphone

Code in automations.yaml:

- id: '1640188739630'
  alias: Test2
  description: ''
  - platform: time
    at: '17:00'
  condition: []
  - service: notify.notify_all
        - action: DISABLE
          title: Disable
        - action: ENABLE
          title: Enable
      message: Test2ny
  mode: single

When this executes I get the following errors in the log:

Logger: homeassistant
First occurred: 19. december 2021 10.54.29 (20 occurrences) 
Last logged: 17.25.42

Error doing job: Task exception was never retrieved

    raise ServiceNotFound(domain, service) from None
homeassistant.exceptions.ServiceNotFound: Unable to find service notify.notify_mobile_app_gittes_iphone

Is it possible to use notify groups together with actionable notifications? And if yes what am I doing wrong?

I think you’ve created the notify group wrongly. The “notify_” should not be included in the service. See example here: Introduction | Home Assistant Companion Docs

For the rest of the question I don’t know.


I think I have read that several times, also as solution to other threads, but before I moved the group to configuration.yaml (I wrongly had it in groups.yaml initially). I removed the “notify_” and it now works :slight_smile: Thanks!
