[Chatbot Whatsapp] How to connect botium to whatsapp chatbot

I need help.

How to connect botium to whatsapp chatbot? previously I’ve read on https://chatbotslife.com/how-to-automate-testing-of-your-whatsapp-chatbot-46ef98677533 but for me it’s not very clear.

when I connect the device an error like this appears

thank you

For testing Whatsapp with Botium Box, you need a device cloud provider account or you setup your own device emulator or Appium server.

I have prepared an appium server on local, but it seems that there is still a config that is lacking in botium, I will share it, please correct me if there is an incorrect config, sir.

when I try to connect to the device the error message always appears, is there a missing configuration?Thank you

will try it and come back to you

this Log detail sir,

Can you try to let your Selenium/Appium Endpoint in the Device Provider configuration end in “/”

like this sir ?

still error

if i ping already connected

In the device set, the capabilities from the screenshot above look strange. should be simply something like this:

image

And in the Selenium/Appium Endpoint, I think this should end in /wd/hub

ok work and what teh next sir ?

it’s working sir, now how do you prevent the app from being reset when connecting to a device?

problem solved. Thanks

Would be awesome if you write some kind of instruction show you made this work. The mentioned blog article maybe doesnt cover all the things you found out.
