    I just skimmed through your code, it looks fine. It should be fine if you are calling the listener() method properly. Are you able to see, such placed orders on the kite web order book? Are those orders successfully placed?
  • vipin0761
    yes although I tried AMO order's. but, that should not make any difference i guess.
  • vipin0761
    it should listen to order's placed from kite gui as well right?
  • sujith
    Order updates are not sent for AMO, you can try a regular order.

    Yes, you will receive order updates for orders place on Kite Web as well on Websocket API.
