Next Generation SmartThings Integration

We’re excited to announce our Next Generation SmartThings Integration!

New Users
As of August 12th, the next-generation integration is now the default connection for new users. No special action is needed as you are automatically using the new connection and things will continue to work after the Groovy shutdown with no action required!

Existing users
As of September 19th, migration tools are now available for all SharpTools users who have a legacy SmartThings connection.

:information_source: For more details on the SmartThings Groovy changes, check out our SmartThings Groovy Update thread.

The SmartThings IDE will start having features removed on October 15th and Groovy is expected to be shutdown by December 31st. The next-generation connection will continue to work after the Groovy shutdown, so be sure to migrate!

The migration tools guide you through the process of connecting a next-generation connection and can automatically migrate your dashboards and rules which have content from the legacy connection to the next-gen connection.

As a reminder, this only impacts users who still have a legacy SmartThings connection. If your account is impacted, you will see a red banner as shown in the reply below.

The migration tools are now available in production. When you refresh your SharpTools User Page, you should see a migration banner if you still have a legacy SmartThings connection (indicated by a circle icon to the left of the location name):

This will walk you through the process of authorizing the next-generation connection, then will bring you back to the migration screen to migrate any dashboards, rules, or Super Tiles you might have with legacy-connection content in them.

If your SmartThings location shows a five-spoke icon next to it, the location is already connected using the next generation connection.

Wow. I just migrated all my dashboards, custom tiles, etc. The entire process took about 2 minutes and was absolutely painless. Thanks for making it super easy.
