Run your python server using the below command


Now you can able to test our webhooks and live events, from your local server. To expose your local web server to the internet use ngrok.

You can create a secure HTTP tunnel by providing the port number on which your web server is running. For example, your web server is running on port number 5000. you can launch your HTTP tunnel with the following command line.

./ngrok http 5000

After exposing your local webserver to the internet using ngrok you will get the following output.


Now you can get your dynamic URL from the above output. To configure webhooks and live events, paste your dynamic URL with correct path in webhooks section.

Each time you start up the Ngrok tunnel, you're likely to get a new URL so don't forget to update the new url in the dashboard.
