Experimental Next-Gen Rule Engine

Eclipse SmartHome now comes with an initial version of a next-generation rule engine - this is available within openHAB 2 only as an experimental feature.

Note: If you use it, this is at your own risk. Especially, you should not expect any documentation besides what is available on the Eclipse SmartHome website.

In order to install it you need to:

  • Enable remote repository access of your runtime as well as enabling experimental features. You can do so in the Paper UI under Configuration->System->Extension Management: enable experimental
  • Install the rule engine from Extensions->Misc-> Rule Engine (Experimental): rule engine
  • When you now refresh your browser, you will see a Rules menu appearing in the main menu of the Paper UI: rule ui
