Re: Can't rename or update variables list (OS 11.0.1 Big Sur

Sadly, after a complete removal of Indigo and a clean installation... the problem still exists. I've been unable find the source of this problem. Hopefully a future update of Big Sur will magically fix this. Thanks for all of your suggestions.

Upgrading to 7.5 did not fix the issue.

Re: Can't rename or update variables list (OS 11.0.1 Big Sur

I've just started hitting this bug. I was able to rename variables a couple weeks ago, but I no longer can. The behavior is exactly as the OP describes.

I have a Mac mini running Big Sur 11.1. The machine serves solely as an Indigo server and as a wireless Time Machine backup; it rarely undergoes any sort of changes (certainly nothing I can think of over the past couple weeks). I hit the issue whether I'm accessing via remote desktop, or from another Mac connecting as a remote client.

Short of a fix, is there any sort of workaround that might allow for renaming via another means? Maybe some sort of action, script, or plugin?

Any thoughts are much-appreciated!

Sorry we haven't fixed this one yet but we still aren't having any luck reproducing the problem here (on multiple Macs running Big Sur). Was it originally working for you on Big Sur then it stopped working?

You can change it via an Indigo Server script by either creating an Action Group with the Execute Script action type, or by choosing the Plugins->Open Scripting Shell... menu item:

Code: Select all
var = indigo.variables['oldVarNameHere']
var.name = "newVarNameHere"
var.replaceOnServer()

Hey Matt, yep – it originally worked on Big Sur, and recently stopped working. Any chance you've filed a radar with Apple?

Huge thanks for the workaround!

Without concrete steps or a reproducible test project I don't think it will get much attention, but I probably should to see if they say it is a duplicate.

Re: Can't rename or update variables list (OS 11.0.1 Big Sur

I'm running 11.2.1 and don't see this issue. Any reason why you're not upgrading? It's usually a good idea to get past the initial macOS releases because they tend to be somewhat buggy. May not fix the issue, but as a general rule...

Upgrading is painful as I'm stuck with HughesNet satellite internet. See screenshot. I'm in line for StarLink and can't wait!

Re: Can't rename or update variables list (OS 11.0.1 Big Sur

Just a thought on this which probably isn't the case, but if there was another(modal?) Indigo window open e.g. Edit device Settings for a device, then trying to rename the variable would get the behaviour you describe.

So I am wondering if somehow another window has got opened or Indigo thinks a window is open?

If you click on Window in the main Indigo menu, is it showing any other windows there?

Disable all 3rd party plugins and see if that makes any difference.

No luck disabling 3rd party plug-ins. I disabled them one by one then checked for variable rename. No change, problem still exists.
