Receiving messages is technically done using Message Received webhook call which you receive from Amio server whenever someone sends you a message.
For the purpose of this tutorial, we will use Ngrok to route incoming webhook calls to your local machine.
- Download and install Ngrok.
- (Optional) Create a server app with opened url for Amio webhooks, i.e.
http://localhost:<YOUR_APP_PORT>/webhook/amioand start it.
- Start Ngrok for routing to your local server with command
./ngrok http <YOUR_APP_PORT>. If you haven't started your own server, use 80 as
- Copy the forwarding URL from Ngrok (
https://c25d851e.ngrok.ioin our example) and set this url in Amio app (Channels → Pick your Telegram channel → Webhook tab).
- Go to Telegram app and send a message to your Telegram Bot that you have previously connected to Amio.
- If you started your local server in point 2, observe your local server has received an HTTP POST request.
- You can see all incoming requests in Ngrok web interface as well in http://127.0.0.1:4040.
