Receive message through Amio API

Receiving messages is done using Message Received webhook call which you receive from Amio server whenever someone sends a message through Amio Chat.

For the purpose of this tutorial, we will use Ngrok to route incoming webhook calls to your local machine.

  1. Download and install Ngrok.
  2. (Optional) Create a server app with opened url for Amio webhooks, i.e. http://localhost:<YOUR_APP_PORT>/webhook/amio and start it.
  3. Start Ngrok for routing to your local server with command ./ngrok http <YOUR_APP_PORT>.
  1. Copy the forward url from Ngrok (https://c25d851e.ngrok.io in our case) and set this url in Amio app (Administration - Channel Detail - Webhook tab).
  2. Open the webpage that you have created in the previous step of this tutorial and send a message.
  3. Observe your local server has received an HTTP POST request.
  4. You can see all incoming requests in Ngrok web interface as well http://127.0.0.1:4040 or in Amio Logs.
