I am trying to create a webhook that triggers a bamboo job when new code is committed to my bitbucket repo however I continue getting a 403 error when the webhook gets triggered. I followed these instructions 

Webhook Install Steps  


Here is a snippet from the error log. 

<div id="content">

Hi Jonathan and welcome to the community!

The IP you are using in the webhook URL,, is a private IP address that can be accessed from your local network. Bitbucket Cloud cannot reach a private IP address, it needs either a public IP or a domain name.

Kind regards,
