On Clock#Time rule trigger ?

This doesn't seem to work as a rule trigger:
On Clock#Time=All,%sunrise% do
but this does:
On Clock#Time=All,08:30 do
What am I doing wrong?

Re: Public broker best protocol?

Yes, I have upgraded to the latest release:
mega-20191208 (ESP_Easy_mega-20191208_normal_ESP8266_4M1M.bin)
. . . . since I made my original post.

Behaviour seems to be the same as far as MQTT goes.
