How can bot start conversation after action_session_start?

Hi! How can I make my bot start conversation after a user opens Rasa X bot shared link? Does it need to be triggered by an external event, if yes how?

> action_session_start seems to require a user response before triggering the first intent utter_greet

I had a look at this chatroom but did not find an answer. Any help?

@ml2021 If I honestly, tell you. I would recommend Bot front/rasa-webchat GitHub - botfront/rasa-webchat: A feature-rich chat widget for Rasa and Botfront for the integration purpose, rather than chatroom.

For the integration of rasa open-source with webchat please see this video link: , the webchat has a lot of features as compared to a chatroom.

@ml2021 Are you able to solve your query, with the above suggestion?

@nik202 no, my question is about how the bot starts conversation run from Rasa X shared link, and how can I program it from or stories.yml. Suggestions are welcome.

I pinged @ChrisRahme, please suggest.

Hey Nik and Maria.

Unfortunately modifying action_session_start also failed to dispatch messages when I tried it. Yes you can use Chatroom and Webchat to do it, but I don’t know how to do it on Rasa X.

@ChrisRahme I already recommend in my previous posts.
