Ability to see what rules a device belongs to

It would be great to have a way to select a device and see what rules the device belongs to. This helps with troubleshooting in regards to possible “rule clash”, and other issues. With SmartThings it was possible to see this in the IDE with both regular “rules” from the old app (classic), or with WebCORE pistons that a device might belong to.

As far as I can see there’s no easy way to see what SharpTools rule a device belongs to. Thank you!

For example, today I have to replace a Zigbee bulb that has finally kicked the can after 6 years. If there was an easy way to “replace” the device in SmartThings new EDGE platform I would use that, but alas there is not. So I need to add the new bulb, and manually update all rules… The thingis I’m not exactly sure what all of the rules are that it could belong to… it’s painful.

Second example, I created a SmartThings automation, which was similar to a SharpTools rule and accidentally included the wrong device in my SharpTools rule… it took me an hour to figure it out because I wasn’t even thinking it was included in the rule that was affecting it.

I can see this as something which is listed when viewing a device’s details in the area found under “View Account / Manage Location / [device name]”


In the same vein, I’m trying to clean up my variables and it would be nice to see which variables are attached to which rules in the manage variables screen or something like that. I’m adding a vote to this.



Yes, this is a great expansion on the initial concept, I also would like to easily see what variables are attached to rules
