Confusing with Chat ID

The most common mistake in setting up integration with Telegram is to confuse Chat ID. The thing is that the Chat ID is in the URL of the chat.

In the example below, "https://t.me/apiway12345" is the chat link and "apiway12345" is the Chat ID

 Once you've connected the Telegram bot and added it to the desired chat, you need to specify it in the Apiway settings.

For example @apiway12345.

Do not forget to add @. 

Users often make the mistake of adding a link to the chat in the Apiway settings. You can see the correct setting in the picture below.

You can change Chat URL (Chat ID) in the settings of Telegram in the Group Type section.

In this section, you can edit the Chat ID to make it convenient for you.
