Jovo run connection error (Error: xhr poll error)


I ran into this issue this morning. It looks like there is something wrong with the local prototyping webhook.

I’ve tried updating and re-installing the jovo-cli but that did not help. And it shouldn’t be an issue with my internet connection.

Running jovo run results in the following error:

Sorry, there seems to be an issue with the connection!
{ Error: xhr poll error
    at XHR.Transport.onError (/usr/local/lib/node_modules/jovo-cli/node_modules/
    at Request.<anonymous> (/usr/local/lib/node_modules/jovo-cli/node_modules/

    at tryOnTimeout (timers.js:323:5)
    at Timer.listOnTimeout (timers.js:290:5) type: 'TransportError', description: 503 }

I’m not sure what to make of the error, any help would be appreciated!


I’m having the same error with jovo run so I cannot test my skill using the jovo webhook. Yesterday it was working fine. Seems like the SSL certificate for expired a few hours ago. Is there something we can do to get it working again?

For now I’ve switched to bst-proxy to be able to test.


I’m having the same problem, but i don’t know why. I’ll try work with ngrok or bst-proxy while the problem is solved.


Seeing the same issue here.


Thank you all for reporting the issue. Will work on fixing this!

For now, as mentioned by @Carleslc and @EverAcosta, I recommend using either bst-proxy or ngrok. Let me know if you have any questions setting it up
