Step 4 of 4: Test your Integration Set up with Data

Still Not Working, Letโ€™s Troubleshoot!

If you are not getting dummy lead from your Bot to Freshdesk, it may be due to the multiple reasons:

  • Wrong Authorization Details added- You will be required to check and see if all the authorization credentials such as API Token, API key, and/or URL has been entered correctly.

  • Free plan- You are not subscribed to the paid plan on BotPenguin as integration works only in paid plan.

If everything is correct and you are still unable to move forward, write to us at contact@botpenguin.com. We will respond back within 48 business hours.
