Unique_id or icon for cover group?

Hi everybody,

I finally got to motorize our roller shutters. Unfortunately, there is no direct way to get them into Home Assistant, so I am using ioBroker via mqtt as a bridge (which works fine).

However, I was wondering, whether it was possible to assign a unique_id to a cover group. It doesn’t seem like in the docs, but perhaps there is another way?

Currently, I got this

  - platform: group
    name: Wohnzimmer
      - cover.rollladen_wz_mitte
      - cover.rollladen_wz_strasse
      - cover.rollladen_wz_vorne

It works. However, I cannot change the icon via webUI, as it doesn’t have a unique id. I added this to my customize.yaml, but it’d be nice to do this directly when setting up the group, or in the webUI

  friendly_name: Wohnzimmer
  icon: "mdi:blinds"

Am I missing something, or is this not supposed to be done in a single yaml file?

Thank you in advance for your ideas :slight_smile:

Groups and group platforms have not yet been added to the UI.

The way you have done this is best for now.
