Dispatcher.utter_message(response) is not working

I am trying to send response via dispacther but it not working but sending text message via dispatcher works fine.

class ActionGreetUser(Action):
def name(self) -> Text:
    return "action_greet_user"
async def run(
    dispatcher: CollectingDispatcher,
    tracker: Tracker,
    domain: Dict[Text, Any],
) -> List[EventType]:

    dispatcher.utter_message(text="Hello World!")
    dispatcher.utter_message(response= "utter_func")

    return []

Here, the message is displayed but the 2 responses(utter_greet and utter_func) are not being displayed. Help needed?

Sometimes Rasa X does not display messages for some reason. Does it work if you use rasa shell?

Also, what version of Rasa are you using?

Rasa version: 2.0.2
No, it is not working on rasa shell also. What should then be the reason because for text it works fine but not for responses.

Okay so it’s because of the version. Before 2.4.0, use dispatcher.utter_message(template = ...) instead of dispatcher.utter_message(response = ...).
