Gateway from Telegram messenger into flespi acts as a Telegram bot that receives text and location messages from users and delivers them into a flespi channel.

Please read detailed instructions on how to create and use this channel.

flespi team created @WialonHostingBot  for demo purposes that you may use to forward location and text messages to Wialon Hosting in 1 click. To receive messages into Wialon units create the unit of flespi gateway type and enter the unique ID given by the bot. With this protocol you can create similar channels and configure them the way you want.

Below is the list of parameters that can appear in the messages received by the channel via telegram protocol. In most parameters, the name consists of tags split by dots: tag1.tag2.tag3.tag4... Each tag defines a certain area of an application, e.g. any parameter that contains mileage data has the 'mileage' tag in the name and any parameter related to fuel control contains the 'fuel' tag. By default JSON fields of the message received by a channel via this protocol can only contain the below-specified parameters. Any additional parameter will be prefixed by the "custom" tag, e.g. "custom.unspecified-name".
