Unable to add localhost to github webhook

Hi, i am currently on the chapter 6: DEVOPS AND SRE FUNDAMENTALS: IMPLEMENTING CONTINUOUS DELIVERY (LFS261)

Video: Integrating GitHub with Jenkins to Setup Webhook-Based Triggers

The instructor shows us how to add a github hook.
The problem is that the instructor does not inform us in the video how to create the ip address for your jenkins so i can add it to the github.

My jenkins runs on localhost

i have tried:
- using the println InetAddress.localHost but the address did not work. When i tried
curl the address it gives 173.1x.x.x:8080. it did not work
Is there any way where i can resolve this issue

Please help me

    Hi @davidboadu ,

    The problem is that the instructor does not inform us in the video how to create the ip address for your jenkins so i can add it to the github.

    In the case of the video, the IP of the Jenkins server is a public IP, so you should be able to see it from your cloud or internet provider. If yours is a private IP behind a firewall/router, it won't work as expected, and you need to do some extra work, as described here:

    I hope that helps,
    Luis.
