    Hi Vivek

    The Box webhook is an event that is fired from the Box platform, so referencing localhost will not work, it has to be a publicly available endpoint. See https://developer.box.com/guides/webhooks/limitations/

    For initial testing purposes, we recommend you use something like https://webhook.site/ which automatically creates a URL for you and shows the webhook payload directly in the browser. For further deployment, most cloud computing providers have a serverless offering that is well suited for webhooks. AWS Lambdas, Azure Web Functions etc.

    Best Regards,
