Cannot connect to web service API

I have a Python web service deployed, and it needs to be able to handle incoming Slack messages sent to endpoint /api/slack. However, the POST requests never get through and I get the error message “your URL didn’t respond with the value of the challenge parameter” in Slack. It works just fine when I’m testing locally but whenever I deploy it to Render it won’t work. Is Render perhaps blocking this type of request from coming through and, if so, how do I fix it? Thanks.

Responded privately.

For others who experience this issue, I had to bind the service to instead of the default by adjusting the startup command. Slack is now able to communicate to my app.
