I’m also in the progress of migrating from another home automation solution to Home Assistant and made the mistake of upgrading to 0.76. The removal of the “rename node” button was undocumented, or maybe I didn’t look at the right place… I’m learning HA.
One single zwave node can spawn several entities, e.g. temperature, humidity, etc… for a sensor. All these entities are created using the “node name”.
In 0.75, I was using the rename node button, deleting entries in the entity_registry.yaml, restart HA and everything was recreated with the right name (i.e. based on the node name).
In 0.76, using the UI as described previously doesn’t change the “node_name” listed in the Z-wave control panel. That means that every sensor (temperature, humidity, etc…) have also to be changed manually. With some devices having more than 10 sensors, it’s a nightmare.
I understand the intent to have a single place to rename entities, but in the case of zwave it seems the decision to remove the “rename node” button was taken to rapidly.
“Rename Node” was doing more than renaming a node, it allowed to set the base name of all sensor entities associated to that node.
Am I missing something? Thanks for your help
