ISSUE: v2.1.4 HA connection

It seems I can't connect to a Home Assistant server in 2.1.4.
It's not possible to "add a new server"

  • Using Node Red in Docker.


  • What node is this (Node-red-contrib-????)

  • What browser are you using?

  • Can you check your browsers console for errors (press F10 to access browser console)

It's any note - the screenshot is from this one


I am using Chrome.

"breeders console" ? - do you meen if there are any javascript errors reported in the browser?

When I open the note there is an error in the browser console.

I did indeed (stoopid autocorrect) :smiley:

What happens if you use the IP of the device rather than host name?

PS: there are not a great deal of HA users on this forum - it is possible this is a well known issue on the HA forum

I am missing the "Server Edit" button from the field. Orelse I have no where to input in the HA credentials.

It used to look like this:


I looked at the file node-red-contrib-home-assistant-websocket.json in the NodeRed folder and if I delete and restart NodeRed it is recreated. But it is empty:

Maybe the error is that this file should be filled properly. Anyone can check a working instance and see what your file says.

Also this was in the log:
[node-red-contrib-home-assistant-websocket/server] Error: Cannot find module '/data/node_modules/has/src'. Please verify that the package.json has a valid "main" entry

Trying reinstalling the HA Websocket integration package as it appears you may have a corrupted install


Since it's run in Docker I just tried recreating it. Both with latest version and version 1.3.5.
Same issue - So the data must be bad somehow.

I gotta do some more testing.

I think I found the issue

Burger Menu > Manage Palette:

I am guess that the error "[object Object]" is the reason it's not working.
Clicking update to 0.41.3 generates and error in the log.

I tried creating a completly new docker instance and importing my flows there. That seems to work much better and I must therefore conclude that the my original instance has gone bad.
