Some DarkSky entities are not found

To give it a try, here my DarkSky configuration:

But some of them are not recognized (“entity not available”):

      - sensor.dark_sky_precip_type

      - sensor.dark_sky_sunrise_time
      - sensor.dark_sky_sunset_time

Did I forget something?

you have to attach _<day>d at the end to define the day you want to see the forecast value from. since you only want the forecast for today you need to attach _0d at the end.

you can use the developer tools’ status page within home assistant to see all available entities. the ones with _0d at the end should also be listed there :slight_smile:

I’ve never been able to get moon phase to show up.

Unfortunately, adding _0d doesn’t fix the problem.
Even the developer tools state page doesn’t show any item with _0d suffix.

Did you remember to restart after configuring the sensor?

I copy and pasted your code and everything is available (@klogg including moon phase):

Could it be that there is no forecast available for your region?

Yes, I restarted the HA server and reloaded the groups.
Just to be sure: I have to change the group items only, or also the configuration ones?
Because if I put, say, apparent_temperature_low_0d in the darksky configuration I get an error on validation:

value is not allowed @ data[‘monitored_conditions’][21]. Got ‘apparent_temperature_low_0d’

I’m located in Italy.

correct. don’t alter the monitored conditions. as i said your posted configuration works for me unaltered.

can you test a different location, either by changing the latitude and longitude settings (either globally or for the sensor only)?

try a big city like Rome, Berlin or London and check if the forecast sensors are appearing then.

Unfortunately nothins has changed, I tried with Rome and London.
Anyway, if that were the problem I expect something like “undefined” rather than an error on the item themselves.

Well I definitely don’t get moon phases and never have since it was added a few months ago. I get all the others though. It’s no big deal for me but as the subject came up I thought I’d mention it.

It is strange all the same.

definitely since all of us get different results…
