How to test a RULE when developing on localhost?



Hi :slight_smile:

I’m trying to test my first rule - which is to create a user in my database when the Auth0 db doesn’t have a value. e.g. Custom webhook with ASPNET WebApi2

Part of this rule is this…{
    url: '',

So … how do we test this out if this endpoint/api is on localhost ?


Because the Rule will be executed on a server, it will not be able to resolve calls to a localhost. You will need to make your API available on the internet for the Rule to be able to call it.


Rules are running on Auth0’s servers, who do not know about your localhost, but can access the internet.

You can make your localhost API available on the internet using a tunneling reverse proxy such as ngrok or pagekite.
