How to fix endpoint error?

Hi, I've been working on an Alexa skill for a while. To test the skill I use ngRok. This has worked fine for weeks. But since today the requests don't reach the endpoint anymore. I can still reach my application with postman or via the browser but Alexa can't seem to reach the application.

If I pushed my code to an azure function, Alexa can reach my code again but not with ngRok anymore, so the problem seems to be the ngRok tool.

Does anyone have an idea about what is wrong?

Thanks in adavance.

Hello and thank you for your message.

Multiple developers have complained about issues with ngrok in the past days. According to our investigation, this issue is caused by changes that were made to ngrok and do not fall under Alexa's responsibility. While ngrok works to resolve this issue, please consider using one of the following services as alternative:

You can also contact ngrok to check the status of their fix.

Regards,
Barry
