How do I test a webhook connected to my development server when that server does NOT have a valid SSL certificate?  The admin screen won't let me add the URL using "http", forcing me to use "https", so I cannot get around it that way.  It is not cost effective to get a valid SSL certificate for our development machine since we know we are safe and trusted and just want the encryption.  As such, we never bothered getting a certificate from a valid CA.  I tried using a self-signed certificate, but I doubt it will work because it is not a trusted authority (browsers complain about it until I add it to my list of trusted authorities).

This is an accepted solution.

We use NGROK. It comes with a free public SSL cert.
