OpenEVSE to emon/cms won't connect properly

Having no luck getting OpenEVSE connected to my local emonCMS on a RPi3B - latest stable release build (july21)

I’ve used the correct read/write api key (if I change this I get an error so I know the api key is ok), but I’m left with this error saying “Format error, json value is not numeric”

Any ideas?

And here is the logfile

What version of EmonCMS are you using? Is any more info given in the following log lines, like which specific input?

Low-write 11.2.11

This sounds like it could be related to this recent change I made move numeric value check to fix virtual feeds · emoncms/[email protected] · GitHub sounds like I need to find another way of fixing this. A non numeric value crashes certain input processing if attached to the non numeric input - that was the original problem I was trying to solve.

The simplest solution is probably just to set the value to null if not numeric and not return an error at that point… I will make that change for now.

Ok I’ve pushed a fix, version is now 11.2.12

OK - thanks. I actually went back to a clean install as my system was only a few weeks old, but I have updated to 11.2.12 and it’s still working.

I thought that was what it did anyway :slight_smile:
