FAQ - How do you update the blueprint from version 1.8 - 2.8 to version 2.9 and above?
If you haven’t yet installed the blueprint then all you need to do is to click on the big blue button “Import Blueprint” at the top of this post and follow the steps. Click Here to go to the top of the post.
If you would like to update without deleting all your automations and the blueprint, then reinstalling the blueprint again and adding back all your automations then continue to read. It is very simple to do.
First you need to update the blueprint. If you don’t know how to do this then Click Here as I have a “How to update a blueprint” already explain for this. Once you have updated your blueprint then come back here and follow the steps below.
You will need to do this for each automation you created with this blueprint.
Go into an automation you created using this blueprint and click on the 3 dots at the top left, then select “Edit in YAML”.
You can now see your YAML code. You could see a two different options (see below) but we are looking for the two lines that say “include_light_control:… & include_night_light_control:…”.
Now you will need to delete the 2 lines with “include_light_control:… & include_night_light_control:…” as shown below. Then click save.
Then go back into your automation by again clicking on the 3 dots and select “Edit in visual editor”. You then will need to re-select your selections under “Light Control & Night Lights - Control” and click save. Your are done.
If you see something different with a row of dashes and letters, you will need to delete all the dashes, and some with a dash and a single letter “- a” as shown below.
To this, then click save.
Once you have clicked save, you then will need to re-select your selections under “Light Control & Night Lights - Control” and click save. Your are done.
Now just repeat for all your other automations you created using this blueprint.
If you would like to check what you have done then go back into your YAML and it should look something like this depending on your selection options.
NOTE: If you don’t see one or both of the lines with “include_light_control:… & include_night_light_control:…” then you have never selected these options and your already good to go.
