"Store in Messages" not working (Except for push notifications)


#1

1) Give a description of the problem
I’m trying to get information logged in the “Messages” section of the smartthings app.
I have tried to use
“Send SMS Nofication”
“Send Noficiation to Contacts”
“Log to Console”
“Send Push Notification”

All with “Store in Messages” set to “true”

“Send Push notification” does work and puts the information into the “Messages” section of the app. However I do not want a push notification sent for this information. I do use the push notifications for other things, but I just want this to show up in the messages log without the push.

The three other options that I have tried do not end up with the information in “messages” on the smartthings app.

2) What is the expected behaviour?
For “Store in Messages” to log the information in Messages in the smartthigns app for those three options, like it does for the Send Push notification option.

3) What is happening/not happening?
The information isn’t showing in the messages section of the smartthings app, except for “send push notification”

**4) Post a Green Snapshot of the piston!
(UPLOAD YOUR IMAGE HERE)

Here is a screenshot of the messages section on the smartthings app. The three messages that are showing there are from testing when I set it to “Send Push notification”. You can see from the log below that the door was opened and closed at 5:19 and neither the sendSMSNotification (which did come through to my phone number) nor the “log” (which did show in the webcore log) showed up in the messages in smartthings that I screenshotted at 5:20.

I don’t know if this will help you, but
I use “Send Push notification and store in messages”
and program my phone to automatically clear the unwanted clutter.

(using Tasker on Android)


Pro Tip:

I add © to the beginning of any message that I want Tasker to clear.


#3

I reached out to SmartThings on this and learned that the new app uses a different data source for the Messages screen. As a result all of the options in webCoRE to log messages there, with the exception of push notifications, no longer work and there is no code available to us to log there anymore.
