Appium Status Command

Let us get a detailed overview about Appium Status Command with illustrations.

The Appium Status Command are primarily used to retrieve the server’s current status. Further, it returns information about whether a remote end is in a state to create new sessions. And, it can additionally include arbitrary meta information that is specific to the implementation.

Also, the readiness state is represented by the ready property of the body, which is false if an attempt to create a session at the current time would fail. However, the value true does not guarantee that a new Session command will succeed. In the same vein, implementations may optionally include additional meta information as part of the body, but the top-level properties ready and message are reserved and must not be overwritten.
