** (UndefinedFunctionError) function SatoriWebsockets.List.start_link/2 is undefined or private

I’ve declared the function in my file and called it in application.ex. The error I’m getting is saying start_link/2, however my function is start_link/0. How can I make my application file to take the function exact which is defined.

defmodule SatoriWebsockets.List do
  use GenServer

  def start_link() do
    GenServer.start_link(__MODULE__, nil, name: __MODULE__)

Here’s the application.ex where I’m calling this function:

children = [
      id: Phoenix.PubSub,
      start: {SatoriWebsockets.List, :start_link, [:index, []]}
      # Start the Telemetry supervisor
      # Start the Endpoint (http/https)

You need your start_link function to accept one argument
