I’m having issues trying to have the owntracks http working with the new authentication. According to the docs
- Mode: Select Private HTTP
- Host: [Home Assistant URL]:[port]/api/owntracks/[your name]/[device name]
- Identification: Turn Authentication on, username
homeassistantand password is your API password that you use to login to Home Assistant.
But the API password is not used anymore. While I have the owntracks mqtt configured and working properly with no issued, I followed all the steps, but it doesn’t connect.
In the android devices, I can configure the owntracks app to use mqtt but after a while I doesn’t update anymore. According to the owntracks documentation, it is highly recommended to use http instead of mqtt because some android limitation in the background.
I have searched everywhere but I have found nothing and, since http is recommended for Android devices because mqtt does not update, I wondering how you guys are dealing with that or if I’m missing something.
Thanks for your help!
