In the Callback URL field, insert the URL of our service and add /WhatsApp to it
Next, go to module controllers, then uncomment the code and after connecting a selection of fields, which are here, subscribe to the message, then commit our controller to codein and uncommit the main function and finally our webhook is configured, you can test it, write a message to the test number.
