Listening to the Transfer event ERC721 token

I have a contract that inherits ERC721Mintable, Ownable. The mint function in my contract calls the inherited _mint(msg.sender, _tokenId). My understanding is that to get the token Id of the created token I have to listen to the Transfer event emited when the token is minted.
Q1. Is this the correct way? Is there any other way?

I tried listening to the transfer event like this:

let instance = await MyToken.deployed();
const event = instance.allEvents();

.on("data", data => {
.on("error", console.error);

However no events are being fired and nothing is being logged in the console
Can you help me and point me in the right direction?

Got the solution. It was kind of a regression from my side. I was using a http provider. It does not support events


Hi @sanjay well done on solving your own issue. I have been caught by that previously.

For your testing, you can use openzeppelin-test-helpers expectEvent

For an example test, see ERC721.test.js:

Thank you so much. I was writing my tests so far myself. I did not know there were test helpers. I will start using them.
