Manual updates #17278

commented Oct 9, 2018


After a discussion with the fine folks in #devs, we came to the conclusion that being able to trigger a manual update could be the solution to a lot of problems. Among others, we can adjust #17276 to leave template sensors in manual mode if their templates are not specific enough. Also sensors that are charged per API call could be made updating less frequent outside of times when it is needed (ie a travel sensor).

This introduces a new service homeassistant/update_entity. Calling it with { "entity_id": "" } will ensure that the entity is updated when the service call is done.


  • The code change is tested and works locally.
  • Local tests pass with tox. Your PR cannot be merged unless tests pass

If the code does not interact with devices:

  • Tests have been added to verify that the new code works.
