[FEATURE REQUEST] invokeScenes parameter for Fibaro:setGlobal


Recommended Posts

I'd like to see an optional parameter added that will disable triggering scenes when setting a global variable in LUA. The HTTP API has this functionality albeit in reverse (default to false)

Something along the lines of:

varName: The name of the global variable

value: The new value of the global variable
invokeScenes: Boolean, default true

  • You can disable scene , change global variable, activate scene again by lua

    Yes I know which is why I posted this in the idea's forum. Just a little bit of programming consistency and efficient coding (minimising the need to keep track of and change scene/virtual/device id's all over the place)

    Disabling and enabling scene's requires knowing the scene id. Adding the 'invokeScenes' parameter removes the need for this.


    Just an idea ...

    That "invokeScenes" statment is available with REST API. See

    So if you change variable with REST API and not with fibaro:setGlobal(), than you can use "invokeScenes".


    In JSON body it will be {"value":"xyz","invokeScenes":true}.


    You can use it in LUA. I used it with HCL, so i had to made virtual device, that uses REST API.


    @Fibaro: You could implement "invokeScenes" into setvariable in Block scenes and in LUA scenes and set it to true by default.
