Instpector doesn't work after update to 2.0

Hi there,

Just a week ago, when I used appium 1.4, the inspector woked fine, but after the update it does not work anymore.

C:\WINDOWS\system32>appium --use-plugin=appium-dashboard

The appium server works well and it also accept the test code
but when I try to use the inspector it says like this

“Failed to create session. The requested resource could not be found, or a request was received using an HTTP method that is not supported by the mapped resource”

the server also got the json but it does not work.

[HTTP] --> POST /wd/hub/session
[HTTP] {“capabilities”:{“alwaysMatch”:{“appium:automationName”:“UiAutomator2”,“platformName”:“Android”,“appium:platformVersion”:“13”,“appium:ensureWebviewsHavePages”:true,“appium:nativeWebScreenshot”:true,“appium:newCommandTimeout”:3600,“appium:connectHardwareKeyboard”:true},“firstMatch”:[{}]},“desiredCapabilities”:{“appium:automationName”:“UiAutomator2”,“platformName”:“Android”,“appium:platformVersion”:“13”,“appium:ensureWebviewsHavePages”:true,“appium:nativeWebScreenshot”:true,“appium:newCommandTimeout”:3600,“appium:connectHardwareKeyboard”:true}}
[debug] [HTTP] No route found for /wd/hub/session
[HTTP] <-- POST /wd/hub/session 404 8 ms - 211

I also tried things below but all didn’t work

  1. access to other IPs like
  2. –allow-cors command for the server
  3. a statics IP p static port and try to access with the inspector.

I am suspecting the content of the desired capabilities but cannot catch a clue.
Could you give me some advice for this?
Thank you in advance.

Thank you for the link.
Yes, I got it already. It just does not work anymore due to the issue.

No route found for /wd/hub/session.
From the link I posted:

Note The default remote server path has changed from /wd/hub to / to reflect Appium 2.0’s default server path. If you’re using Appium Inspector with an Appium 1.x server, you’ll likely need to update the path information in the New Session form back to /wd/hub .

I really appreciate your clarification!
I wasted a day for this.

I’m sorry that you lost a day. Reading the documentation should always be priority #1.
