I have chrome 80 installed in my system.

webdriver manager version:

webdriver-manager 12.1.7

webdriver status:

enter image description here

Protractor version:

Version 5.4.2


This configuration works fine in local system but when I run in the ci/cd with the same configuration and versions. I get the below error:

Error: SessionNotCreatedError: session not created: This version of ChromeDriver only supports Chrome version 78
  (Driver info: chromedriver=78.0.3904.11 

Could someone let me know how protractor decides which version to use?

There was a web driver module inside the protractor installation, and I had to update it using the below command.

node node_modules\protractor\node_modules\webdriver-manager\bin\webdriver-manager clean

node node_modules\protractor\node_modules\webdriver-manager\bin\webdriver-manager update

Now my scripts works with lates driver.
