Appium 2.0 introduces concept of plugins, to enhance appium without adding additional overhead for the users who dont need the feature. To take advantage of this, we have developed a opentelemetry plugin for appium which helps integrate opentelemetry with appium and can expose debug info and traces configurable via an API. The talk will provide brief overview on what opentelemtry is and how is it important, as well as give a basic demo of the appium opentelemetry v1 plugin.
