Common Issue: Devices Get Stuck In "Adopting" State

To prevent your devices getting stuck on an "Adopting" loop, log in to your controller and update how the controller sends the inform command. This can be achieved by going to Settings > Controller Settings. On the right hand side, you will see Controller Hostname/IP, change this to your Docker host's IP address or hostname. Additionally, make sure to toggle (it is off by default) the option that says Override inform Host. This will make it so the inform command is http://<>:8080/inform where is your Docker host's IP and not an internal docker address.

If you don't see this option or are having problems finding the settings then look over near the top and click Can't find what you need? Switch to Classic Mode. You will then need to go to Controller near the bottom and on the right hand side look for Controller Hostname/IP and follow the same steps mentioned above.
