EventWatcher not working after firmware update...

I recently upgraded my VeraPlus to the latest firmware. Now EventWatcher is not working:

every link like this:http://IP/port_3480/data_request?id=lr_EventWatcher&report=log

Returns: “No handler”

And nothing apart from reboots gets logged.

2018-09-25 22:58:42.401, E, 0, , Vera, RESTART
2018-09-25 23:57:15.157, E, 0, , Vera, RESTART,

Can anyone help?

Are there any errors in the log?

I didn’t see anythign that stuck out. I can try again later today.

I’m not running AltUI, so I did delete the device and the plugin and grabbed the files from github and got the same result.

No event handler, essentially means that EventWatcher hasn’t started correctly. There should be at least one error early in the logs. Clearly there should be nothing basically wrong with the plugin itself - it hasn’t been changed for quite a while. But I?m struggling to think of what it can be that Vera may now have screwed up in the upgrade.

This is what I found…

That’s helpful.

I was quite amused by the negative date in the early part of the log, but that’s by the by.

This shows that the plugin started but failed on line 1168:

What version are you running? Because in the one I’m looking at, around line 1168 is:

	for i = 0, #classes do
	  local c = classes[i] or {}
		selected[i] = c.symbol ~= "" and c.service and watchCategories:find (c.symbol
	end

…which means that c can’t possibly be nil.

I’m looking at version 2018.03.04, but this part of the code hasn’t changed for a long time, AFAIK.

I deleted all of the devices, the app, and via ssh, all the eventwatcher files.

Then I went to the github site, re-downloaded them, and then reinstalled.

Now I am getting:

1158 has: selected[i] = c.symbol ~= “” and c.service and watchCategories:find (c.symbol) – looking for these specific letters

Yes, but is the line before…

local c = classes[i] or {}

…?

end
local selected = {}
local excluded = {}

for i = 0, #classes do     -- going from 0, so can't use ipairs
  local c = classes[i]
	selected[i] = c.symbol ~= "" and c.service and watchCategories:find (c.symbol) 		-- looking for these specific letters
end

You have an old version, then.

I’m using the one from: https://github.com/akbooer/EventWatcher

Is there a newer one than that?

Yes, the development branch:
