App not opening on test execution

Hey, im new to Appium so sorry if this is a dumb question, but when I try to execute a test the application used by the test its not opening, therefore the test fail.

I used the same caps on the Appium inspector and it launches the application easily ( both with a apk for a fresh install and the appPackage) but when I run with “node test.js” it never opens anything.

If I open the app manually on the phone and then execute the test it runs without any problem.

Any ideas?

enable debug logs in appium and read errors. reason is there :slight_smile:

Sorry, but the debug logs are the logs displayed in the Appium server right?

I don’t fully understand them but I don’t see any error ultil it search for the element, which is not found because the app its not open.

Got it to work

had to remove the “appium:” from the caps for the test to execute
