Creates an intent.

To define the interaction between the user and your bot, you define one or more intents. For example, for a pizza ordering bot you would create an OrderPizza intent.

When you create an intent, you must provide a name. You can optionally provide the following:

  • Sample utterances. For example, "I want to order a pizza" and "Can I order a pizza." You can't provide utterances for built-in intents.

  • Information to be gathered. You specify slots for the information that you bot requests from the user. You can specify standard slot types, such as date and time, or custom slot types for your application.

  • How the intent is fulfilled. You can provide a Lambda function or configure the intent to return the intent information to your client application. If you use a Lambda function, Amazon Lex invokes the function when all of the intent information is available.

  • A confirmation prompt to send to the user to confirm an intent. For example, "Shall I order your pizza?"

  • A conclusion statement to send to the user after the intent is fulfilled. For example, "I ordered your pizza."

  • A follow-up prompt that asks the user for additional activity. For example, "Do you want a drink with your pizza?"

type intentName

string

param intentName

[REQUIRED]

The name of the intent. Intent names must be unique in the locale that contains the intent and cannot match the name of any built-in intent.

type description

string

param description

A description of the intent. Use the description to help identify the intent in lists.

type parentIntentSignature

string

param parentIntentSignature

A unique identifier for the built-in intent to base this intent on.

type sampleUtterances

list

param sampleUtterances

An array of strings that a user might say to signal the intent. For example, "I want a pizza", or "I want a {PizzaSize} pizza".

In an utterance, slot names are enclosed in curly braces ("{", "}") to indicate where they should be displayed in the utterance shown to the user..

  • (dict) --

    A sample utterance that invokes an intent or respond to a slot elicitation prompt.

    • utterance (string) -- [REQUIRED]

      The sample utterance that Amazon Lex uses to build its machine-learning model to recognize intents.

type dialogCodeHook

dict

param dialogCodeHook

Specifies that Amazon Lex invokes the alias Lambda function for each user input. You can invoke this Lambda function to personalize user interaction.

For example, suppose that your bot determines that the user's name is John. You Lambda function might retrieve John's information from a backend database and prepopulate some of the values. For example, if you find that John is gluten intolerant, you might set the corresponding intent slot, glutenIntolerant to true . You might find John's phone number and set the corresponding session attribute.

  • enabled (boolean) -- [REQUIRED]

    Enables the dialog code hook so that it processes user requests.

type fulfillmentCodeHook

dict

param fulfillmentCodeHook

Specifies that Amazon Lex invokes the alias Lambda function when the intent is ready for fulfillment. You can invoke this function to complete the bot's transaction with the user.

For example, in a pizza ordering bot, the Lambda function can look up the closest pizza restaurant to the customer's location and then place an order on the customer's behalf.

  • enabled (boolean) -- [REQUIRED]

    Indicates whether a Lambda function should be invoked to fulfill a specific intent.

type intentConfirmationSetting

dict

param intentConfirmationSetting

Provides prompts that Amazon Lex sends to the user to confirm the completion of an intent. If the user answers "no," the settings contain a statement that is sent to the user to end the intent.

  • promptSpecification (dict) -- [REQUIRED]

    Prompts the user to confirm the intent. This question should have a yes or no answer.

    Amazon Lex uses this prompt to ensure that the user acknowledges that the intent is ready for fulfillment. For example, with the OrderPizza intent, you might want to confirm that the order is correct before placing it. For other intents, such as intents that simply respond to user questions, you might not need to ask the user for confirmation before providing the information.

    • messageGroups (list) -- [REQUIRED]

      A collection of messages that Amazon Lex can send to the user. Amazon Lex chooses the actual message to send at runtime.

      • (dict) --

        Provides one or more messages that Amazon Lex should send to the user.

        • message (dict) -- [REQUIRED]

          The primary message that Amazon Lex should send to the user.

          • plainTextMessage (dict) --

            A message in plain text format.

            • value (string) -- [REQUIRED]

              The message to send to the user.

          • customPayload (dict) --

            A message in a custom format defined by the client application.

            • value (string) -- [REQUIRED]

              The string that is sent to your application.

          • ssmlMessage (dict) --

            A message in Speech Synthesis Markup Language (SSML).

            • value (string) -- [REQUIRED]

              The SSML text that defines the prompt.

          • imageResponseCard (dict) --

            A message that defines a response card that the client application can show to the user.

            • title (string) -- [REQUIRED]

              The title to display on the response card. The format of the title is determined by the platform displaying the response card.

            • subtitle (string) --

              The subtitle to display on the response card. The format of the subtitle is determined by the platform displaying the response card.

            • imageUrl (string) --

              The URL of an image to display on the response card. The image URL must be publicly available so that the platform displaying the response card has access to the image.

            • buttons (list) --

              A list of buttons that should be displayed on the response card. The arrangement of the buttons is determined by the platform that displays the button.

              • (dict) --

                Describes a button to use on a response card used to gather slot values from a user.

                • text (string) -- [REQUIRED]

                  The text that appears on the button. Use this to tell the user what value is returned when they choose this button.

                • value (string) -- [REQUIRED]

                  The value returned to Amazon Lex when the user chooses this button. This must be one of the slot values configured for the slot.

        • variations (list) --

          Message variations to send to the user. When variations are defined, Amazon Lex chooses the primary message or one of the variations to send to the user.

          • (dict) --

            The object that provides message text and it's type.

            • plainTextMessage (dict) --

              A message in plain text format.

You can also set the number of conversation turns that the context should be active, or the length of time that the context should be active.

{'valueElicitationSetting': {'waitAndContinueSpecification': {'active': 'boolean'}}}
