Transferring WhatsApp Clients to New Platform – February

Starting February 1, we are transferring the WhatsApp clients to our new edna platform. The reasons for the transfer are as follows:

  • We have launched our new edna platform with new functionality. For more details about the platform, read this article and the current online help section.
  • The current edna Enterprise platform is outdated, and it’s time for us to close it.

Once transferred, you will notice the following changes:

  1. You will be able to use the new functionality of the edna platform.
  2. You will no longer pay for the WhatsApp service, but for the edna software license. However, the prices will remain the same.
  3. Your dashboard address will be changed starting February 1: https://app.edna.io/.
If you have any comments about the migration, please, contact your manager before February 1.

License Payment

We will transfer the amount of the edna Enterprise balance to the edna platform as an overdraft. This money will be used to pay for the February license fee. You might need to top up your balance in advance if the transferred amount is not enough.

The edna platform will automatically debit the February license fee from your balance on February 1. To find the recommendation fee for February go to Profile > Company profile and open the Payment > Balance replenishment tab.

For more details, refer to the License and Service Payments article.

Payment details will also be new on the edna platform.

What Data is Transferred

We will transfer the following data from your current personal dashboard in edna Enterprise to your dashboard in the edna platform:

  • Login and password
  • WhatsApp templates (operator templates)
  • API key and values of the callback URLs

We will not transfer the following:

  • Message history. However, all the message and chat history in Jivo will be saved.

  1. Create custom templates based on the operator templates that we transferred from your edna Enterprise account. For more information, refer here.
  2. Configure a broadcast.

If you are currently sending WhatsApp broadcasts via our API, then, to start broadcasts in edna, you need to do the following:

  1. Change the URL of the message sending methods call in your system from https://im.edna.io/<method> to https://app.edna.io/api/old/<method>.
