I am going to build a flight booking skill for Alexa.
In the Developer Console, I create a skill named
Flight Booker, use the custom model, and add the invocation name
Then, use the JSON to set up the slot types, slots, and intents. Copy and paste it into the JSON Editor in the Developer Console. Click Save Model.
You’ll notice that some of the slot types are built-in types from Amazon:
AMAZON.DATE. This might be new if you’ve only used custom slot types before.
SEARCH_PHRASE slot type makes it easier to capture input by providing a collection of phrases that a user might use to start an utterance, like “tell”, “tell me”, “recommend”, “give”, and “give me”.
