I am running:
Home Assistant 2023.4.4
Operating System 9.5
And HA integration with password protection of the web interface is not working.
I tired to connect a ShellyPlugS and a ShellyBulbDuo. They work fine, but only without password protection of the web interface.
No web interface password set:HA integration works
Web interface password protected: HA asks for username and password, but it is not working
No web interface password set → integrated into HA → Web interface password protected: HA doesn’t recognize the device anymore
No web interface password set → integrated into HA → Web interface password protected → deleted from HA: device cannot be reconnected to HA
No web interface password set → integrated into HA → Web interface password protected → deleted from HA → device factory reset: HA integration works again
It seems crazy, that this doesn’t work. Without password protecting the web interface it seems absurd to password protect HA at all. I set up ACLs with individual username and password for every ShellyPlugS on my MQTT broker (running alongside HA with InfluxDB, NodeRed, and Grafana), because they measure power consumption of servers and network equipment to prevent accidental (and unauthorized) access (the plugs are potential suicide switches), but they cannot be integrated into HA with password protection …
Am I doing something wrong? My HA version is much more recent than the one mentioned above, but it still doesn’t work with password.
