Key Word: Proxy <botname>
The Proxy bot can act as another bot upon user request. This is a particularly useful tool for bot developers in the testing phase. During the build and test phase of bot dev, a developer can instantly test the bot as if it is already live on channels like Slack, Facebook Messenger, Telegram, Skype etc, without having to actually publish the bot on this channels. This dramatically increases the speed and efficiency of developing channels specific bots.
Note: Only bots built using the Gupshup bot-building platform can be tested with the Proxy Bot.
The Proxy bot uses just one command: proxy <your-botname>
try: proxy wordster

We are removing few redundant parameters, that were being sent when a callback happens to your bot (i.e. inbound message comes to your bot).
Following is the list of parameters.
However, we will continue to send following parameters. If you are using any of the deprecated parameters, we request you to use these alternatives.
You are requested to make a note of this and do the necessary changes immediately to your bot code to keep it working. Should you need any help, please feel free to send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org
