    I created a local web site with wordpress and I installed the plugin of the IBM Watson Assistant, I can see the chatbot in the web page but If I send any mesagge the Virtual Assistant doesn’t answer me. I configurate the assistant for answer the questions or words but in IBM Watson, It works but in wordpress doesn’t work.

  • I have this problem a lot, too. Works in desktop browser but not mobile, works in one chrome profile but not another, etc. Nothing in the logs. I suspect some sort of cache or cookie bug in the plugin, but not sure yet. Wanted to add my voice to this issue (but will come back and post here if I find an answer or a solution).

    Same to me. Watson chatbot is running at desktop emulator and at IBM site without problems. Watson chatbot was running today morning at wordpress without problems. Since some hours when filled input no reply.

    Same here. I already messaged the creators as well. We need a fix!

    A lot of IBM Watson Assistant Plugin customers reported on the forum as well as by email about the “500 Internal Server Error”.

    This error is caused by recent change to Watson Assistant v2 API. This change is not described in the official documentation:
    1., screenshot;
    2., screenshot.

    Before the API was changed, “context” object structure (in the response from Watson Assistant) was:
    {"context": {"skills": {"main skill": {"user_defined": {}}}}}.

    Then there was added a new undocumented “system” object and now “context” object structure is:
    {"context": {"skills": {"main skill": {"user_defined": {}, "system": {}}}}},

    Due to the difference between documented structure and the actual one Plugin fails with “500 Internal Server Error”.

    We are working on fixing it.

    You are welcome!

    In my case, the update option is not showing, the version of my Watson Assistant plugin is still 0.8.12. Please tell me how to get this thing fixed.
