Problem exceuting custom actions

I get this error when my bot tries to run my custom action:

from rasa_core_sdk import Action
from import SlotSet

class ActionSaveSlot(Action):
    def name(self):
        return 'action_saveSomething'

    def run(self, dispatcher, tracker, domain):
        response =tracker.latest_message.text

        return [SlotSet("answer", response)]


        response =tracker.latest_message.text 

should be

        response =tracker.latest_message

How are you running custom actions in 11.3 or above ? 10.4 was simpler . Can you simple give me short steps. any help is appreciated

@Abir - I wrote a bit about rasa core 0.11 and running an action server - i hope this helps you

The code is in github

Thanks a lot man :slight_smile: I went through your code , can you explain utter_template . I have used mostly utter_message and would love to know about the former one
