Storing Multiple Hue Bridge Data in a single table





I'm trying to create a QA/QD to get through APIs all my Philips Hue Data:

  • Button 1: Get all Hue Groups
  • Button 2: Get all Hue Scenes
  • Button 3: Get all Hue Lights


The purpose is to store this in a global variable and then be in a position to use this in other QD and scenes (saving light parameters for instance, to come back to initial state after an alert...or naming hue light in fibaro HC3 as they are in Philips hue environment...)

I've managed to make it run, see code below, hope it could help some one...

That's kind of a miracle considering my skills ^^


My issue starts where i actually do have 2 hue bridges (more than 50 lights).

I would like to extract data from each of them and then merge result in a single table that I would then set as a global variable.

This table should have one more key than the hue table: for the bridge source (1 or 2).

I guess it's something with a for k,v in pairs(result) but i can't manage making it run :(


To understand the code below:

* to avoid having device id coded in scene and QA, they are all part of a Global Variable (mappingTable). If I want to change a device Id because replacing it, changing the Id in mappingTable updates all scenes and QA

* i have coded only bridge 1. user information for bridge 2 are prepared

* I've deleted all my attempts to present a running code if someone is interested


Another question is around the function to get hue information in return.

I'm not sure really understanding and mastering the synthax which remains a little bit obscur for me. could it be simpler?


May I request some help and attention? Covid alert gives me sometime to search, but honestly, i'm stuck :)

Thanks in advance for your support ^^
