1) only via admin user

2) easy do this via VD. node-red -> call your VD ->VD change or update globals

    I do not have HC2 plus sclerosis ;) 

    1sh it’s right behavior as for Fibaro 

    if you want trigger scenes by global parameters we should provide key in POST - but sclerosis;) 

    try google this forum as far as I remember I was wrote about this 2 y ago

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

    Please login or register to see this link.

    .

    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.

    Hello

    I'm trying to get this to work but always have a JSON parse error.

    What is this virtual device required? I have been trying most of the day to get the MQTT broker working with fibaro and node-red and that seems to be working now but i cannot get node red to change any of the variables in the variable panel in fibaro using this node-red string. 

     

    My MQTT is working as i can get device info in node-red fine, It's just the other way (node-red to fibaro)

     

    Thanks for the good work!

     

    Regards

    Mathew
