Question about Webhook of Watson Workspace

    I'm not familiar with the Telegram API, so I cannot speak to it.  Workspace expects to be able to invoke a URL (a webhook) for your application, so it needs access to that URL from the internet. If your computer is behind a firewall and your application is running on that computer, then Workspace still needs a way to call that URL.

    If you are testing your application locally, then you may want to check out ngrok, which provides an internet-addressable URL which Workspace can call.

    Turns out that Telegram API offers 2 mutually exclusive methods (both polling and webhooks): "https://core.telegram.org/bots/api#getting-updates". Apparently that was what I was missing.

    Thank you for your reply Darren and the detailed explanation & info about ngrok!
